About Baldor

The history of energy efficiency in industrial motors is really the story of Baldor Electric Company.  For almost 100 years, Baldor has led the industry in developing products that deliver greater performance and reliability while using less electricity.  From the company's founding in the 1920s through today, Baldor has introduced one efficiency enhancing advancement after another.  In fact, many of the advancements initiated by Baldor have lter been adopted as industry standards.  

The issue of energy efficiency for electric motors and drives is becoming increasingly relevant as electricity costs continue to rise.  Companies are now competing in an environment of rising energy costs and the uncertainty of available electricity.  These dynamics require the kind of forward-thinking industrial motor, drive and generator supplier that anticipates customer needs and delivers products that save money and improve productivity.  That company is Baldor.  

Baldor has been at the forefront of the transition to EISA-compliant motors.  Our Super-E premium efficient motors already meet or exceed the NEMA Premium efficiency level requirements mandated by EISA.  Additionally, we are expanding our Super-E line to include even more ratings and increasing the efficiencies of our existing Standard-E motor line to meet EISA requirements.  These improved motors will cost less to operate, run cooler and last longer.

For Subtype I requirements, Baldor's line of Super-E motors with higher efficiencies will continue to be available for use by customers who have the highest efficiencies available for the lowest cost of operation.  These motors comply with EISA requirements for Subtype I motors and exceed requirements for Subtype II.  

For Subtype II requirements, Baldor's Standard-E motors are true general-purpose motors designed to comply with Subtype II requirements for 1-200 hp and 201 - 500 hp requirements.  You can have confidence that their performance will meet the demands of a wide range of industrial applications.  

Baldor is proud to partner with Motion Industries to create The Motor Specialist, a central location to answer all of your EISA-related questions.
