Baldor Electric Co. introduces its BE$T solution as an application for the iPhone. The Fort Smith, Ark.-based manufacturer's BE$T program can easily and accurately calculate an existing motor's annual electricity usage based on its nominal efficiency and compare it to the annual electricity usage of Baldor's Standard-E and Super-E premium efficiency motors. It then recommends by catalog number, the appropriate Baldor motor for the application, and notes the payback period, in months, for replacing the existing motor.
BE$T desktop can calculate the savings on a group of motors showing the amount of money that can be saved when all motors in the group are changed to Baldor Standard-E or Super-E designs. The software is also capable of calculating and comparing yearly electrical savings when a variable speed drive is used verses a constant speed motor as well as also show annual CO2 footprint reductions. BE$T is also available in CD-ROM format or downloadable from www.baldor.com.
The BE$T iPhone application is available from iTunes and can be located by searching on the keyword "Baldor."
