Bonfiglioli now sells BX/MX motors that are more efficient than other options. The ongoing worldwide process to improve electric motor efficiency is top priority for the company.
According to the international standard IEC 60034-30, the motors meet IE3 efficiency-class standards. The X of the new BX/MX motors stands for “eXcellence” in efficiency. That’s because the IE3 is the top efficiency rating currently formalized by global standards.
The BM/MX motors also satisfy Ecodesign Requirements for Electric Motors — Regulation (EC) No 640/2009 – Commission Regulation (EC) No 640/2009 … of 22 July 2009 … implementing Directive 2005/32/EC.
That regulation comes from the European Parliament and the Council to dictate Ecodesign requirements for electric motors.
The BX/MX motors withstand environments up to IP65 as and resist extreme temperatures (with bimetallic or PTC components). Incremental and absolute encoders are options, as is an anti-condensate drain. These features make the BX/MX motors suitable for myriad applications that require low energy consumption … particularly those that run continuously.
