Purchasers, suppliers and regulators need to be confident that electric motors offered for sale on the global market meet claimed energy efficiency performance. The introduction of tougher mandatory minimum energy efficiency levels for motors has led to a renewed focus on testing for compliance. Effective motor testing depends on both manufacturers and independent test centres undertaking tests as consistently as possible.
EMSA aims to raise the quality of testing of motors worldwide by facilitating collaboration between a selection of test laboratories. The focus is on sharing best practice in the use of the IEC 60034-2-1 test method standard and developing conventions for issues with particular procedures.
