Roller products and the european ecodesign directive

Our view to the energy related products directive 2009/125/EC.

What is the ERP directive?

The ERP directive 2009/125/EC is a directive released by the european parliament and council to regulate "energy related products". This directive is relevant in the european union an has been enacted as a law in the member states.

How are Roller products affected by this directive?

The fans have to be in compliance with the commission regulation No 327/2011 implementing Directive 2009/125/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to ecodesign requirements for fans driven by motors with an electric input power between 125 W and 500 kW. Since 01.01.2013 the first step of  the minimum requirements have been in force. At the 01.01.2015 the requirements will be tightened. Fans that don't comply with the directive mustn't be set into operation. In case of service there is a transition period until 1st Januar 2015.

I use Roller products does this affect my work?

In principle no. By using energy efficient EC- fans, most of our fans consume below 125 W electric power input. Our fans that consume more than 125 W have been in conformity with the requirements of the directive. The conformity with the directive is granted by the CE- mark on the fan. The limit of 125 W is for one fan. If more fans are installed in a unit, the limit is in force per fan. For spare parts only fans compliant to the ERP directive will be offered.

Are there exceptions?

Yes. For products in special applications e.g. ATEX or extreme temperature ranges (< - 40°C and > 100 °C) the directive doesn't apply. Furthermore there are edicts which have to be applied when planning air conditioning units. Please keep yourself up to date about the latest legislation issues.

Will there be further rules?

The increase of energy efficiency in the field of refrigeration and air- conditioning is a politically laboured intention. Further regulations are elaborated. If Roller products are concernd by further directives, we will keep you up- to- date.
