Understanding nema motor nameplates mission statement 2 is to be the best (as determined by our customers) marketers, designers and manufacturers of industrial electric motors, mechanical for most induction motors, full load speed can be between 96% and 99% of the. A subsidiary of regal-beloit corporation leeson l5t 2n7 for more information contact: basic training the induction motor is, in effect, a transformer - with the stator winding much of the infor mation needed can generally be obtained fr om the name - plate record all nameplate information it can save time and confusion. If you’re fortunate enough to work on a motor with a nameplate, even if the data is partially illegible, understanding what the information means can save you time, money, and probably make your coworkers jealous.
Understanding the service factor of electric motors the service factor (sf) is commonly misunderstood as an allowable overload for electric motors for example, you may find a 100-hp motor with a sf of 115 driving a 110-hp load, under the incorrect assumption that it tolerates up to 115 hp. Motor nameplate and brushless motor basics march 8, 2016 by david herres leave a comment the brushless dc (bldc) motor is taking over ever more applications formerly consigned to ac and brush-type dc motors. 6 operating instructions – ac motors dr / dv / dt / dte / dve / asynchrounos servo motors ct / cv 3 basic structure of ac motors motor design 3 motor design 31 basic structure of ac motors the following illustration is int ended to explain the general structure.
Understanding motor nameplate data shown below is a simplified version of an industrial induction motor nameplate nema nom efficiency 962 - nema stands for national electrical manufacturers' association this organization specifies the minimum information that must be on a motor nameplate the simplified diagram presented here does not show. Motor nameplate information-the service factor on a motor nameplate indicates how much above the nameplate rating a motor can be continuously loaded -example: 40hp 115sf is good for 46hp continuously -the motor nameplate will also provide key application information to include: full load. Motors may not provide adequate starting and pull-out torques it's not a good practice to size motors to operate continuously above rated load in the service factor area and d motors25 and incorrect starter/overload sizing is possibleunderstanding induction motor nameplate information fig50 it's become important to have full-load. Understanding a single-phase electric motor nameplate 11 march 2014 by carl brennand the nameplate attached to an electric motor contains vital information to help suppliers and end users ensure it produces the highest possible level of performance and efficiency.
Understanding induction motor nameplate information ed cowern, pe, baldor electric co | may 01, 2004 the standardization agency — national electrical manufacturers association (nema) — was established in 1926 “ to promote the standardization of electrical apparatus and supplies. Nameplate data for different equipment types motors: the national electric code requires that motor nameplates include the following information in addition to the manufacturerʼs name and address. The nameplate of any electric motor is a treasury of important information about that motor if you specify, buy, maintain, or replace motors, you should know how to read them your ibt rep and/or branch can help you improve your knowledge and understanding.
Knowing how to read the information on a motor nameplate will allow you to identify performance characteristics and applications of a motor, as well as potentially solve unexpected performance issues. Nameplates with certain information useful in the identification of the type of motor, selection of motors for applications, and the repair and troubleshooting of the motor it is the first place to look to determine exactly what you have or to verify on what. Three-phase induction motor showing stator, rotor, and on all nameplates of single-phase and polyphase induction motors the information on a motor nameplate can be arranged in categories by definition, an induction motor converts electrical energy to useful mechanical energy with rated electrical input the.
The important information that we can see on motor nameplate is a electrical inputfrom this we can know what the voltage for motor,the suitable frequency,full load ampere,type of connection ( star or delta ),power factor and others we can collected the data for induction motor from name platethis information is very important to troubleshooting or [. Three-phase induction motors reference [ 1] chapter 7 three-phase induction motors, electrical power and controls, by timothy l skvarenina and william e dewitt, 2004, prentice hall introduction understanding induction motor nameplate information, may 1,. Understanding motor nameplate information - nema vs iec standards the best way to approach a basic understanding of what standardization means and to cover some of the material fundamental to standard induction motors is to examine in detail the nameplate information contained on a typical motor. Section 2 part 1 page 33 / 64 date 09/07 application manual for nema motors nameplate the nameplate of a motor provides important information necessary for selection and application below is the nameplate of a sample 15.
Why should inverter-duty ac induction motors be used in conjunction with variable-frequency motor drives interpret what each of the following pieces of nameplate information specifies. The information on a motor nameplate can be arranged in categories by definition, an induction motor converts electrical energy to useful mechanical energy an induction motor’s speed is. In my motors class (1965) we had an induction motor with wound rotor and brushes that let us use an external rotor resistor so we could run it any class, and did such experiments i hope such labs still exist for undergrads. The motor book (on photo: single phase magnetic induction motor with exposed rotor and coil) after all, motors are always designed to carry out specific tasks as this is a grundfos publication, it is only natural that we should pay special attention to motors used for pumps – although much of the information contained within these pages.
