High-performance dynamometer systems company Sakor Technologies has provided its electric motor efficiency testing dynamometer system to TÜV Süd to enable the company to test and verify the efficiency of electric motors according to a multitude of national and international standards. The Sakor system can test two- to eight-pole motors ranging from 10W to 3MW.
TÜV Süd is responsible for carrying out testing and certification to ensure compliance with legal regulations and international standards. The company will use Sakor’s latest motor efficiency testing dynamometer for its program of certification testing of single- and three-phase AC electric motors that will see use within the consumer, commercial and industrial sectors.
Each testing system has been developed and optimized to ensure a wide range of motor sizes can be tested while remaining highly accurate. The systems can perform all current and existing global electric motor efficiency standard tests. Furthermore, the solution from Sakor Technologies will aid engineers who are aiming to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels and increase the efficiency of electric motors.
“TÜV Süd is a world leader in testing electric motors and related system components, and we are pleased to be providing them with cost-effective systems that provide maximum utility within the increasingly stringent regulatory environment,” said Randal Beattie, president of Sakor Technologies. “Since the vast majority of all electricity used in the world powers three-phase electric motors, improving their efficiency will have the greatest impact on reducing fossil fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions. We are very proud of our involvement in this critical initiative.”
