EGMF Position Paper on draft Ecodesign measure on electric motors and variable speed drives

EGMF Position Paper on draft Ecodesign measure on electric motors and variable speed drives (Lot 30)

EGMF published a position paper in the context of the ongoing discussion on the existing Ecodesign measure on electric motors and possible additional requirements for electric motors and variable speed drives (Lot 30). EGMF welcomes the exclusions from the scope of the future regulation of universal motors, battery-powered products and hand-held products. In addition, EGMF recommends: 1. using the definition of “motors completely integrated into a machine” from IEC 60034-30-1:2014 to explain what is meant by “cannot be tested separately”; 2. clarifying the proposed definition on “hand-held”; and 3. Simplifying product information requirements.
