Electrical Motor Testing

Safety Testing for Electrical Motors as per IEC 60034-1

IEC 60034 is applicable to all rotating electrical machines for safety testing.

Why We Require IEC Tested Motors?

  • Electrical motors are responsible for 50% of global electricity use in the survey.
  • IEC standards has contributed to the development of energy-efficient electric motor systems through the internationally relevant test Standard like IEC 60034-1, IEC 60034-2-1 and IEC 60034-30-1 etc.
  • It helps to find the faults in motors in normal and abnormal conditions.

What is the Classification of Electric motors as per IEC standard?

  • IE1 Standard Efficiency
  • IE2 High Efficiency
  • IE3 Premium Efficiency
  • IE4 Super-premium Efficiency.

What are the benefits of Testing?

  • Increase the life of the motor.
  • Save money & save energy as well
  • Provide faith in the product
  • Improve the safety of the product
