Reducing energy costs with GAMBICA

GAMBICA has published a new guide entitled 'Selection of Efficient Motors & Controls' which is available as a free download from the company’s website.

The guide is designed to assist in the selection of the best motor and control technology, addressing the differences in motor efficiency ratings, the considerations and benefits of different control methods, and the issues that affect the decision making process for fixed or variable speed control.

The guide is aimed at senior managers and decision-makers looking to reduce energy costs in an organisation. It is written in a non-technical style with a focus on the life-cycle costs of a motor driven system. A key message is that, although higher efficiency may increase initial purchase cost, the reduced energy cost is much more significant; often paying back quickly and m any times over.

"In a single year the energy cost of running a motor can be up to 10 times its purchase price," said Steve Brambley, deputy director of GAMBICA. "Over the life of the motor, energy is by far the most significant cost and anyone purchasing a motor should take this into consideration. As an example, a high efficiency motor and VSD might cost £2000 more than a standard efficiency motor, but can save £5000 per year on the energy bill."

The guide can be downloaded from the technical publication section of GAMBICA's Web site
