AMETEK PMC Blowers Meet European Union’s Energy-Related Product Directive

AMETEK Precision Motion Control (PMC), a leader in brush and brushless blowers and motion control solutions, has announced their blowers received the required efficiency grades to meet the European Union’s Energy-related Products (ErP) Directive.

The Directive, issued in 2009, establishes requirements for environmentally sound design of energy-consuming products and sets a 20-20-20 target of 20% energy reduction and 20% share of energy from renewable sources by 2020. The Directive is being implemented in two steps with Step 1 in 2013 and Step 2 in 2015.

The ErP regulation defines minimum efficiency grades for fans and blowers with electrical input power of more than 125 watts and less than 500 kilowatts.  Exceptions also are provided for fans and blowers for certain emergency purposes and specialized applications.  It also doesn’t apply to blowers that operate optimally at 8,000 rpms or higher.

EMC & eMobility

For a company embarking on EMC testing for either component or vehicle-level testing of their EV products, it is necessary first to have a good understanding of the EMC regulatory situation.

AMETEK Precision Motion Control has long focused on achieving energy efficiency in the design and development of its products, so the majority of its fans and blowers already met the Directive’s requirements, including its Microjammer 5.1” (130mm), Nautilair® 8.9” (226mm) and Nautilair 12.3” (312mm) blower families .

AMETEK PMC is a division of AMETEK, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electromechanical devices with annual sales of $3.3 billion.
