The motor is classified into five grades: IE1 (lowest), IE2, IE3, IE4, and IE5 (highest) according to the rated efficiency. Each country also formulates industrial standards to regulate domestic energy efficiency. TECO defines products above the IE3 level as high efficiency motors. What is the difference between using traditional (IE1) and high efficiency (IE3) motors? We illustrate it by carbon emissions:
Emission from Production Stage kgCO2e
Emission from One-Year Usage kgCO2e
370,040 (+700 trees)
Emission from Lifecycle UsagekgCO2e
5,550,600 (+10 thousand trees)
based on IE3 AEHF150hp motor specifications
Calculated by operating 250 days per year, the high efficiency (IE3) motor can reduce emissions by 9,104 kg of CO2 per year, which is equivalent to the carbon uptake of 700 trees. In the 15 years of the life cycle, it is equal to the carbon absorption of 10,000 trees.
What is the special threshold for manufacturing high efficiency (IE3) motors? The answer lies in the full-in rate of enamelled copper wires. The neat and tight the copper wire upgrades motor efficiency. The full-in rate of copper wire inside the high-efficiency motor must be more than 85%. It has been difficult to achieve more than 75% in the past by human hands. TECO invested more than US$10 million to build a world's first and most complete industrial motor smart line in Asia by using 3D vision robots and AGVs. We commit to build the production capability for high efficiency motors.
Since the founding of first factory in 1956, TECO manufactures motor more than 60 years in Taiwan. We have acquired the Westinghouse Motor Division in USA and became the largest manufacturer in Taiwan; and one of the top five in the world.
In the 50s, TECO accompanied Taiwanese people entring industrialized age after World War II. The employees wore shoes, uniforms and hats that were given by the company, and worked hard in production stations. Today, TECO as a Taiwanese company that established a global map, our social responsibility lies in continuously improving energy converting efficiency of motor and delivering more rotating power from electricity. TECO's high-efficiency motor saves 624 million kWh of electricity per year for global customers. And as it says,
TECO Motors Rotate the World.
