IEEMA Electrical Insulation System – IEIS

UL File: E318161
Electrical Insulation Systems play an important role in the design of motors, transformers, coils and other electrical products. IEEMA has developed two UL Recognized Insulation Systems namely IEIS-155-1 (F) and IEIS-180-1 (H)

Prospective exporters of Electrical Rotating Machines, such as Electric Motors, Fans, Alternators & DC Machines, derive following key benefits by adopting (under license from IEEMA)IEIS

  • Saving considerable time and money in getting individual electrical Insulation system approved by UL
  • Choice of wide variety of electrical insulating materials from many Indian sources, hence reduced dependence on overseas electrical insulating material suppliers

How it works

  • Indian manufacturers wishing to get their machines UL approved apply to IEEMA for a license to adopt IEIS by paying a nominal one time license fee to lEEMA.
  • Adopt IEIs by which UL will open a file in the name of the Machine manufacturer and transfer the entire IEIS file content to this file, The Machine manufacturer will maintain this UL file.
  • The Manufacturer can then use any combination of the electrical insulating materials from the lEIS tables depending on its choice.
  • Directly submit end product (without submitting electrical insulation system), such as Electric Motors, Fans, Alternators & DC Machines, to UL for testing and approval according to relevant UL standards.
