What are the differences between ie1 – ie2- ie3- ie4

The induction motors are extensively used at different levels. Small induction motors are used at the domestic level and the big induction motors are used at big industrial levels where the induction motors are used in big industrial units for various purposes. The induction motors are classified on the basis of their efficiency levels as per the International Efficiency 60034-30-1. On the basis of the efficiency levels, the induction motors are classified into 4 categories which are IE1, IE2, IE3, and IE4. The IE1 motors lie in the Standard Efficiency range. The IE2 motors lie in the High-Efficiency range. The IE3 motors lie in the Premium Efficiency range and the IE4 motors lie in the Super Premium Efficiency range. The efficiency range of each motor shows that the efficiency of the next series is better than the previous series. The main features and the differences in the features of the IE1, IE2, IE3 and IE4 type induction motors are presented as follow: 

IE1 Motors (Standard Efficiency Motors)

The IE1 motors lie in the IE1 class of the international efficiency standard. The output of the IE1 motors is 0.75kW to 355kW. The poles for the IE1 motors are 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12. The speed range of the IE1 motors is from 500rpm to 3600rpm. The rpm frequency for IE1 motors is 50Hz or 60Hz. The aluminum frame size for IE1 motors are 56-200.
