  • China energy labelling according to efficiency
  • Note: CCC is also necessary for Hong Kong
Future

IE3 from  June 01st, 2021

  • for motors from 0.12 to 1,000 kW
  • The old standard will be replaced by GB 18613-2020.
  • The "Grade" system will be adapted to the IEC nomencalture, this mean Grade 3 will become simular to IE3.

Electric drives in industrial applications consume up to 70 % of the total energy required. For many companies, this offers
great potential for optimisation.


NORD DRIVESYSTEMS supplies a wide range of electric motors, which meet all common global efficiency regulations
and standards. Our motors are used in many applications because they are not just powerful and robust, but can also be
combined with all NORD gear units.


Whether in agitators, conveyor systems, intralogistics or the food industry: NORD electric motors can be found wherever
high performance is required. They operate reliably over many years with very high efficiency. This saves operating costs
for our customers and at the same time helps protect the environment.
