For motors with several rated voltages, the regulation requires that the efficiency of the relevant class is complied with for all voltages. For wide range motors (e.g. 220-240V) the motor must achieve the efficiency over the entire range (220 to 240V). NORD IE2 motors have sufficient reserves to comply with the efficiency directives, even in wide range operation.
