EU Regulation 640/2009 - IE2/IE3 motors
The European Regulation 640/2009 states that from Jan. 1, 2015, motors with power starting from 7.5 kW with 2, 4 or 6 poles shall meet the IE3 efficiency level, or meet the IE2 efficiency level and be operated by means a variable speed drive (VSD). Consequently starting from that moment LC.305 and LC.305HV will be available with an IE3 class efficiency motor (p/n 9603024/SF and p/n 9603031/SF). In any case it will be still available IE2 motors, but they will be marked to be used with VSD only.
This regulation doesn't affect countries not part of the European Economic Area (EEA).
DVP will in any case offer IE3 motors also on models not affected by this regulation among the already available IE2 versions.
