Baldor Electric Co. (Fort Smith, AR) announced that a new updated version of its interactive electronic motors and drives catalog has been published. With the new Version 8 CD-ROM, users are able to instantly access comprehensive technical information on over 6,500 motor and drive products. Product information includes performance and test data, DXF and PDF format dimension drawings, nameplate data, replacement parts, and installation and operating manuals. An interactive search function allows users to find motors and drives with only limited information. The CD-ROM includes an energy-savings analysis program that calculates an existing motor's annual electricity usage based on its nominal efficiency, and contrasts it with the annual usage of a "standard efficiency" or "premium efficiency" alternatives. It will also calculate energy savings if a variable speed drive is used.
