Asynchronous Motors fulfill IE3 class requirements.

Press Release Summary:

Available in 7.5–22 kW range, BX/MX Motors meet standards of IE3 efficiency class and are compliant to Ecodesign Requirements for Electric Motors as set forth by European Parliament and Council. Units are IP65-rated with Bi-Metallic or Ptc thermal protection, incremental or absolute encoder availability, and anti-condensate drain. Motors are suited for applications that require low energy consumption, particularly continuous duty actions.

Original Press Release:

New IE3 Motors (7.5-22kW) - Bonfiglioli´s First Step in Its Expanding and Innovative IE3 Product Series

2 new motor series fulfilling IE3 class requirements are now available in the 7.5-22kW range

Bonfiglioli fosters initiatives for sustainable energy use and for the exploitation of renewable energy sources. The ongoing worldwide process to improve electric motor efficiency is top priority for the company, and as a leading firm in the renewable energy business, it is dedicated to making this transition for all its customers. The release of the new energy-efficient BX/MX motors is further proof of Bonfiglioli´s commitment to environmental preservation.

The BX/MX motors fulfil several requirements and environmental norms. The motors meet standards of IE3 efficiency class, according to the international standard IEC 60034-30. The “X” of the new BX/MX motors stands for “eXcellence” in efficiency since the IE3 is the top efficiency rating currently formalized by global standards.

In addition, to meeting IE3 standards, the BM/MX motors are also compliant to Ecodesign Requirements for Electric Motors (Regulation (EC) No 640/2009 - Commission Regulation (EC) No 640/2009 of 22 July 2009 implementing Directive 2005/32/EC) as set forth by the European Parliament and the Council with regard to Ecodesign requirements for electric motors.

The BX/MX motors offer a highly efficient and cost-effective solution that has a lower environment impact. The motors provide protection degree up to IP65 as well as thermal protection (Bi-Metallic or Ptc). Furthermore, the motors include incremental and absolute encoder availability and an anti-condensate drain. All these cutting-edge features make the BX/MX motors ideal for a diverse range of applications that require low energy consumption, particularly continuous duty actions.

With the release of the new BX/MX series, Bonfiglioli offers a complete range of asynchronous motors that include the following:

Series  / Efficiency Class / IEC-Compact

BN / IE1 / IEC

BE / IE2 / IEC

BX / IE3 /  IEC

M /  IE1 / Compact

ME / IE2 / Compact

MX /  IE3 /  Compact
