Siemens Ltd recently introduced its new range of energy efficient motor – SIMOTICS 1LE7. These motors offer efficiency values higher than the IE3 standards, which is currently the highest in class as recognized by Indian Standards.
The motors are capable of offering an average monetary savings of up to 8 – 20% depending on the frame size. Apart from generating savings, the SIMOTICS 1LE7 range will assist customers to reduce lifecycle costs, and meet environmental regulations.
Bhaskar Mandal, executive vice president and country division lead, process industries and drives division, Siemens India, said “Siemens is recognised as the pioneer in manufacturing state-of-the-art motors for diverse sectors, applications and power classes. Taking this legacy forward, SIMOTICS 1LE7 will prove to be a reliable and efficient innovation which will boost the performance of energy intensive industries like cement, metals, mining, power, textiles, pulp and paper to achieve significant reduction in energy consumption and thus reduce costs of operation and their carbon footprint.”
Siemens Ltd was also the first company in India to launch the locally – manufactured IE2 and IE3 efficiency class industrial motors. Today, one out of two energy efficient low voltages IE motor sold in India is from Siemens.
