  • SOR/2018-201, s. 80

Marginal note:Energy-using product

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

  • Marginal note:Limits

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 755, a small electric motor is not considered to be an energy-using product if it was manufactured before March 9, 2015 or it is incorporated into any other product that is subject to these Regulations.

  • SOR/2018-201, s. 80

Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards

  •  (1) The energy efficiency standards set out in the applicable table in paragraph (a) of 10 C.F.R. §431.446 apply to a small motor.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) A small electric motor complies with the energy efficiency standard if it meets that standard when

    • (a) the product’s average full load efficiency is determined using horsepower and kilowatt ratings that are determined in accordance with paragraph (b) of 10 C.F.R. §431.446;

    • (b) the product is tested at 100% of its nominal full load; and

    • (c) the product is tested in accordance with testing procedures established by one of the following standards that are applicable to a small electric motor as defined in section 753:

      • (i) if the motor is polyphase and has a nominal output power ≥ 0.18 kW (0.25 horsepower) but ≤ 0.75 kW (1 horsepower), CSA C747-09 or IEEE 112-2004, Test Method A,

      • (ii) if the motor is polyphase and has a nominal output power > 0.75 kW (1 horsepower) but ≤ 2.2 kW (3 horsepower), CSA C390-10 or IEEE 112-2004, Test Method B, or

      • (iii) if the motor is capacitor-start capacitor-run or capacitor-start induction-run, CSA C747-09 or IEEE 114-2010.
