SUBDIVISION AElectric Motors (continued)

Marginal note:Energy-using product

  •  (1) An electric motor is prescribed as an energy-using product.

  • Marginal note:Limits

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5, 751 and 752, an electric motor is not considered to be an energy-using product if

    • (a) it was manufactured before February 3, 1995;

    • (b) it was manufactured before November 27, 1999 and is an explosion-proof motor or is part of an integral gear assembly;

    • (c) it was manufactured before January 1, 2011 and it

      • (i) has an eight-pole construction,

      • (ii) has NEMA U frame dimensions,

      • (iii) is a NEMA design C or an IEC design H,

      • (iv) is a close-coupled pump motor,

      • (v) is a vertically mounted solid shaft normal thrust motor,

      • (vi) is a fire-pump motor or other NEMA design B motor with a nominal output power of more than 150 kW (200 horsepower) or is an IEC design N motor with a nominal output power of more than 150 kW (200 horsepower), or

      • (vii) is footless;

    • (d) it was manufactured before June 1, 2016 and it

      • (i) is a NEMA design A with a nominal output power of more than 150 kW (200 horsepower),

      • (ii) is an enclosed NEMA design with a NEMA frame number of 56,

      • (iii) has NEMA frame dimensions other than T or U,

      • (iv) has an IEC frame number of 80 or more but less than 90,

      • (v) is a partial electric motor, a brake motor or a vertical hollow shaft motor,

      • (vi) is designed to operate continuously in free air, but can operate continuously for a period of at least 30 minutes while completely immersed,

      • (vii) has a separately powered blower,

      • (viii) has a base, end shields or flanges that are not within the dimensions specified in NEMA MG-1, or

      • (ix) has a NEMA shaft that is not a standard shaft, R-shaft or S-shaft, as specified in NEMA MG-1; or

    • (e) it was manufactured before June 1, 2017 and is a medical-imaging motor.

Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards

  •  (1) The energy efficiency standards set out in column 3 of the table to this section apply to electric motors described in column 1 that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 4.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) An electric motor complies with the energy efficiency standard if it meets the standard when tested at 100% of its nominal full load in accordance with testing procedures established by the standard set out in column 2 that are applicable to an electric motor as defined in section 749.
