The increasing demand for electrical energy to sustain global development requires consistent heavy investments in power supply generation. However, in addition to complex medium and long-term planning, these investments rely on natural resources, which are becoming depleted due to constant pressures upon the environment. The best strategy to maintain energy supply in the short term is to avoid wastage and increase energy efficiency. Electric motors play a major role in this strategy, since around 40% of global energy demand is estimated to be related to electric motor applications. Consequently, any initiatives to increase energy efficient, by using high efficiency electric motors and frequency inverters, are to be welcomed, as they can make a real contribution to reductions in global energy demand.

In manufacturing, there are two standards used to measure the grades of electrical enclosures and environmental ingress. You may be familiar with NEMA and IP ratings as they are commonly used to classify equipment, but understanding the difference between the two can be confusing. Both NEMA and IP ratings can be used to help you identify the best products for your application, but their testing methods and parameters are quite different.
