Explosion Proof: NEMA Premium explosion proof motors for hazardous locations. UL/CSA certified, totally enclosed cast iron. Built for Class I Div I Groups C and D.
TEFC (Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled): Most commonly used motor in ordinary industrial environments. TEFC motors do not permit outside air to freely circulate through the interior of the motor. An external fan blows outside air over the frame of the motor to cool it. This ordinarily means that the motor is dust tight, and has a moderate water seal as well. TEFC motors are not secure against high pressure water.
ODP (Open Drip Proof): Allows air to circulate through the windings for cooling, but prevents drops of liquid from falling into motor within a 15 degree angle from vertical. Typically used for indoor applications in a relatively clean, dry locations.
ATEX: Motors for Explosive Atmospheres according to the European ATEX Directive. Explosion Proof (Ex d) and Non Sparking (Ex nA) models. ATEX 95 equipment directive 94/9/EC, Equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
Metric: IEC Frame Metric motors are designed to meet international standards ( IEC 60034 efficiency requirements) as replacement motors for overseas applications and machinery such as pumps, conveyors, fans and more. IEC 60034 is an international standard of the International Electrotechnical Commission for rotating electrical machinery
Oil Well Pumper / Design D: These special motors have the high slip and high torque that oil well beam pumping units demand.
NEMA: is defined as an abbreviation for the National Electrical Manufacturers Association. An example of NEMA is a rating that is used as a standard to define the types of environments where an electrical device can be used; a NEMA rating.
Fractional: Single & three phase fractional general purpose motors with rolled steel frame, open and totally enclosed enclosures. These can range from a 1/4 HP through 2 HP.
Medium Voltage: Up to 2,000HP in stock! Designed with optimized construction and manufactured in robust frames for all applications, including severe service. These motors operate at 2300 through 6000 Volts.
