Grundfos motors achieve world-class rating

The new MGE-motors from Grundfos are performing to the highest standards and can be marked IE5, the highest energy efficiency rating worldwide. This can be used to speed up energy savings and business.

Reliable, customisable and energy efficient are three words that aptly describe the new MGE-motors from Grundfos. Since its introduction in 2013, these motors have set the standard in the market and just recently, the updated version has raised the bar even higher. The motors’ energy efficient attributes, including the frequency converter, have made it possible for the motors to exceed the more common IE4 level to achieve the IE5 rating, presently the highest energy efficiency level worldwide for electrical motors.

“We have managed to accumulate all of our experience in the software to create an exemplary product. When we combine this with the motors’ reliability, they boast greater selling points, for instance by reducing the payback time of an e-pump. This is an important achievement,” said Kim Jensen, Regional Managing Director for EMEA in Grundfos. “In combination with our pumps, these motors can give our customers an unsurpassed level of efficiency.”

The MGE-motors are equipped with state-of-the-art intelligent components, which allow them to adapt to the system that they are part of and drive down energy consumption. Along with other energy saving creations – for instance, a permanent magnet synchronous motor and a high efficiency frequency converter – this puts the motors at the top of their class.

The IE5 level has been attained by all MGE-motors in the range from 0.75 to 11 kW.
