WEG Motors, one of the WEG Group Business Divisions that manufactures motors and gearboxes, has recently been requalified by CSA Group Testing and Certification Inc. as a Testing Facility for electric motors.

Within its Certification Program, CSA has granted WEG the certificate for Qualification of Test Laboratories, which qualifies the company to perform its own electric motor tests, including tests for explosive atmospheres, aiming at safety and energy efficiency, in line with the standards applicable in several markets. WEG has had this accreditation for over 25 years, which proves a long-standing partnership. 

The CSA (Canadian Standards Association) Group is a global organization dedicated to safety, social assistance and sustainability. It is a leader in standards development and testing, inspection and certification worldwide, including Asia, Europe, Canada and the US, where the company also has accreditation from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), allowing certification of equipment for the North American market. 

As a result, there is a benefit on the certification process for the Canadian and US markets, which are widely served by WEG through its subsidiaries and distributors since the certification allows WEG to supply electric motors tested in Brazil, where WEG is headquartered, mainly to customers from the USA territory, with certification time savings and shorter delivery times. 

By searching for solid partnerships and global certifications, WEG demonstrates its commitment to the most demanding international requirements and offers to the global market different high performance, innovative and technological solutions for industrial processes.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
