NOM-016-ENER-2016: Energy efficiency of AC motors, three-phase, induction, squirrel cage type, nominal power of 0.746 kW to 373 kW. Limits, testing method and marking

Last updated: 18 July 2019
This standard establishes the minimum levels of energy efficiency that must comply the electric motors of alternating current, three-phase, induction, squirrel-cage type, in powers of 0.746 kW up to 373 kW with nominal voltage of up to 600 V, of a single rotation frequency, horizontal or vertical mounting position, air cooled and continuous regime. See the attachements for the minimum levels of energy efficiency.

The standard NOM-016-ENER-2016 supersedes the standard NOM-016-ENER-2010. The 2016 version increases the minimum energy performance levels of motors with 8 poles. Minor changes are in other levels of efficiency.
