Australian MEPS has been valid from 2001. It is one of the oldest energy efficiency program for LV motors. The requirements were updated in 2006. ABB offers a full range of motors complying with MEPS and a broad range of motors complying with voluntary HE MEPS. This offer consists of both standard motors and motors for explosive atmospheres.
What is Australian MEPS?
Australian MEPS applies to 0,73 - 185 kW, 2 - 8 pole motors (up to 1100 V).
All low voltage motors, including motors for explosive atmospheres, are included.
Motor efficiency must meet the specified level in AS/NZS 1359.5:2004 both at 100% and 75% load. Motors not fulfilling AU High efficiency levels cannot be marketed as high efficiency motors.
