Maximum Energy Savings Provided by New WEG Electric Motors

Quattro, W22 Super Premium Motors offer new solutions, more reliability

ATLANTA, Ga.-WEG Electric Corp. (www.weg.net/us), a leading global supplier of motors, drives, controls, transformers, and generators, announces that it will add two new energy-efficient motors to its line: Quattro and W22 Super Premium. An informational presentation on the benefits of both of these models will be presented on Monday, June 28 at 1:30 p.m. during the 2010 EASA Convention and Exposition in Orlando, Fla.

Quattro, a line-start permanent magnet motor, is a hybrid model that features a three-phase distributed winding in the stator. Operating at IEC established IE4 efficiency levels. The Quattro is more efficient than NEMA Premium® efficiency induction motors. The motor operates at synchronous speed regardless of the load, providing no I2R losses in the aluminum cage. Other advantages of the Quattro include: same frame size as an induction motor, no feedback device required for precise speed control, low bearing temperature, no special protection relays needed, and synchronized inverter-driven multi-motor operation.

The W22 Super Premium motor offers maximum efficiency and exceeds NEMA Premium levels with 20% fewer losses. This model is the most efficient model in the W22 product line. The motor is two efficiency bands over premium motors and operates with very low noise levels and high torques. The W22 Super Premium has a 1.25 Service Factor through the 447T fame size. When paired with an electronic soft starter, the W22 Super Premium motor is even more efficient and reliable. Both energy-efficient models will be available for order by September 2010.

"When energy savings is a top priority, it is critical to select a motor that will provide maximum efficiency and reliability," said Dale Basso, Low Voltage Motors Manager. "The Quattro and W22 Super Premium motors are two product solutions that can provide quantifiable savings."

To calculate the payback from using an energy-efficient WEG motor, use the WEG Electric online payback tool. By selecting one of the motor models from the list, the tool can calculate electricity consumption, running cost and potential reduction in CO2 emissions, depending on the motor.
