Ecodesign Directive - Energy-efficiency information

Note to Ecodesign-Directive 2009/125/EC in conjunction with commission regulation (EU) 2019/1781

The Ecodesign Directive is the framework that sets requirements on all energy-related products within the European Union. Regulations made under this Directive set minimum energy efficiency requirements, ensuring that we reduce the energy consumption and environmental impact of our products. The relevant regulation for motors, AC drives and power drive systems is Regulation (EU) 2019/1781. In the United Kingdom, similar requirements are imposed by Statutory Instrument SI 2021 No. 745.

This is a regenerative drive according to EU 2019/1781 Art.2 (3) c), hence the requirements in section 3, and point (1), (2), and (5) to (10) of section 4 of Annex 1 shall not apply.
