During the first 5 years in operation (first generation Amp Miser™ belts), the motor’s power consumption did not increase. After this long period in operation, the friction coefficient on the underside of the belt remained at a consistently low level. The energy savings were 32%.
The standard E 8/2 U0/V15 LG-SE black belt’s power consumption under load was 1603 watts. By comparison, with Amp Miser™ 2.0, power consumption was 953 watts, only. The energy savings were 40%.
To date, after 3 years, there was no rise in the power consumption for Amp Miser™ 2.0 (a virtually constant 954 watts) and therefore we can state, there is no change in the friction of coefficient on the underside.
