  • If a motor or motor-pump assembly is marked with two or more voltages, the sample to be assessed shall be tested at the lower voltage.
  • The laboratory test sample is composed of one to four motor-pump assemblies of different capacity of motor coupled: 0.180 kW (¼ HP), 0.370 kW (½ HP), 0.560 kW (¾ HP) and 0.750 kW (1 HP).
  • If you need to certify a family and it does not include the four types of motors: 0.180 kW (¼ HP), 0.370 kW (½ HP), 0.560 kW (¾ HP) and 0.750 kW (1 HP), the sample to be sent for laboratory testing shall be made up only of motors of each capacity in KW (HP) to be certified.
  • The verification sample shall be formed with family members other than those tested during initial certification.
  • The motor used shall have an efficiency equal to or greater than that of the motor used for the certification process.
  • The motor used shall have a valid certificate according to Standard NOM-014-ENER-2004.
  • The same type of impeller.

If, due to product improvements in power consumption, the motor of the pre-certified product is modified, you shall submit the Test Report, according to the reference standard, from an accredited and approved testing laboratory, for the product with the new component.
