Baldor Reliance Super E Motor
The Baldor Super E Motors are premium-efficient and came on the scene around 2010. They replaced the previously used standard-efficiency and high-efficiency Baldor motors. The old models (standard-efficiency and high-efficiency) will have a silver paint and the 3 phase catalogue numbers will start with an ‘M’. Verses the newer, premium-efficient models will havegold paintand the 3 phase motors will start with an ‘EM’. If you’re replacing a silver Baldor motor, you should be able to cross reference to the current gold model by adding an ‘E’ in front of the motor catalogue number.
There are still a few silver standard-efficiency and high-efficiency models available, however, the gold premium-efficient motors will give you much more bang for your buck. Using a premium efficient motor will help save significantly on energy costs. For example, the M3710T-5 was 89.5% efficient whereas the EM3710T-5 is 91.7% efficient.
