The China Energy Label scheme has been mandatory since 1.9.2008 and it was revised 2012.
To qualify for the China Energy Label, motors must meet the requirements specified in Chinese National Standard GB 18613-2012. The testing method under GB/T1032 is identical to IEC 60034-2-1 and the grades are in line with the classes in IEC 60034-30 (IE2/IE3) and IEC 60034-31 (IE4).
In addition to energy efficiency requirements, low power motors are subject to CCC-certification.
ABB has a full range of LV motors meeting China Energy Label requirements.
What is China Energy Label?
China Energy Label program applies to 0.75 kW - 375 kW, 2-6 poles, up to 1000 V 50 Hz, motors.
It is applicable for all low voltage motors including motors for explosive atmospheres. Efficiency measuring method is according to GB/T1032 which is identical to IEC 60034-2-1:2007. Motor efficiency must meet the specified level both at 100% and 75% load.
Although at present China Energy Label program doesn't apply to low power three phase 10W - 550 W, 2/4/6 pole asynchronous motors with voltage 690 V and below and powered by a 50 Hz AC power supply, these motors must comply with the requirements specified in standard GB25958-2010 "Minimum allowable values of energy efficiency and energy efficiency grades for low power motors".
