Energy efficiency maintained during motor service and repair

Energy efficiency maintained during motor service and repair
Conducted at the University of Nottingham, an extensive joint research project has found that energy efficient motors remained within plus or minus 0.5% of their original efficiency after being repaired by a good service centre. This is within the specification tolerances of the label and efficiency banding.
