  1. The evaluation is made using the numeric value obtained by multiplying the coefficients a to f set forth in Table 2 and Table 3 by the energy consumption efficiency obtained by measurement, respectively, and rounding to the nearest tenth.
    For outputs other than the rated outputs set forth in Table 2 (60Hz), if the output in question is equal to or higher than the middle point between two of the rated outputs set forth in Table 2 which are one class higher and lower than the output in question, the coefficients a to c of the lower rated output shall be used.

  2. The standard energy consumption efficiency E of Category 36 set forth in Table 1 shall be calculated using the following formula.
    E= A0×(log10(PN/PC))3+B0×(log10(PN/PC))2+C0×log10(PN/PC)+D0
    Here, E: Standard energy consumption efficiency (unit: percent)

  3. If shipment includes 3 ratings (6 ratings), for 200 V / 60Hz (400 V / 60Hz), the evaluation shall be made using the value obtained by multiplying the energy consumption efficiency obtained by measurement by each of the coefficients i to k set forth in Table 4, and rounding to the nearest tenth. For outputs other than the rated outputs set forth in Table 4 (60Hz), if the output in question is equal to or higher than the middle point between two of the rated outputs set forth in Table 4 which are one class higher and lower than the output in question, the coefficients i to k of the lower rated output shall be used.
    The 3 ratings and 6 ratings are defined as follows:
    3 ratings: 200 V / 50Hz, 200 V / 60Hz, 220 V / 60Hz, or 400 V / 50Hz, 400 V / 60Hz, 440 V / 60Hz
    6 ratings: 200 V / 50Hz, 200 V / 60Hz, 220 V /60Hz, 400 V / 50Hz, 400 V / 60Hz, and 440 V / 60Hz

  4. In regards to the number of units shipped by a manufacturer, etc., if the shipment includes the 3 ratings (6 ratings) set forth in Remarks 3, the quantity ratios set forth in Table 5 shall be used to find the quantity of each rating. In the calculation, the first place after the decimal point is rounded off to obtain an integer value and, if it is necessary to adjust the fractional quantity, the adjustment shall be made by the rating whose quantity ratio is highest. In a case where the shipment does not include the 3 ratings (6 ratings), the quantity of respective ratings shall be used to find the shipment volume of the manufacturer, etc.
