The motor industry has operated with DOE efficiency regulations since 1997. A new rule is expected to roll out in May of this year to close some loopholes on regulation for 1-500 HP three phase motors as NEMA and energy advocates collaborated on a petition that DOE adopted. Although the small motor rule is not perfect, a dialog is happening to clear up things. It is important to have these reglations with clear definitions to aid with adoption and enforcement. Remember that these rules include motors mounted to equipment imported for use in the U.S.

I wonder if manufacturers will embrace the new requirements or slip under the specifications by not rating the motor for continuous duty or other loop hole.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is frequently defined by consumer or healthcare applications. It’s important to remember, however, that IoT offers at least as much potential to industry. One of the most promising subsets of industrial IoT is embedded vision -- or machinery that can see, interpret data, and act accordingly.
Going back to older application notes or archived CEC courses remind us of some of the most useful tricks and techniques we can use to reduce the power dissipation in an MCU-based design.
