  •  (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.

Marginal note:Information

  •  (1) For the purpose of subsection 5(1) of the Act, the following information must be provided to the Minister in respect of a small electric motor:

    • (a) its average full load efficiency;

    • (b) its type, namely, capacitor-start capacitor-run, capacitor-start induction-run or polyphase; and

    • (c) if the motor is one for which a unique motor identifier has not been provided under paragraph 5(1)(c), its nominal output power expressed in kilowatts (horsepower) and the number of poles.

  • Marginal note:Standard

    (2) The information must be collected in accordance with one of the following standards:

    • (a) 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;

    • (b) 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

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