Motor Selection and Application

Totally Enclosed Air-Over - Exterior surface cooled by a ventilating means external to the motor. Customer must provide sufcient air ow to cool motor. Additional protection for motors used in extremely dirty or humid conditions is offered by Reliance mill and chemical duty (XT) features.

The use of electric motors, like that of all other utilization of concentrated power, is potentially hazardous. The degree of hazard can be greatly reduced by proper design, selection, installation and use, but hazards cannot be completely eliminated.
Inverter Duty AC Motors

Some of the factors that must be considered for the safe application of motors are as follows: 1. Enclosure 2. Service conditions 3. Proper matching of the motor to the load 4. Proper sizing and connection to an inverter by qualied technicians Information on these factors is presented in this section.

(IP) Classication of Enclosures

The classication system consists of the letters IP (Ingress protection) followed by two numbers. The rst number indicates the degree of protection against entry of solid material into the enclosure. The second number indicates the degree of protection against entry of liquids.
Table 1: Degree of protection against solid material and personal injury indicated by the 1st numberal Numberal Denition No special protection of persons against accidental or inadvertent contact 0 with live or moving parts or against the ingress of solid material Protection against accidental inadvertent contact with live or moving parts 1 by large surface of a body such as a hand or similar object exceeding 50 mm Protection against accidental or inadvertent contact with live or moving 2 parts by a nger or similar object exceeding 12 mm Entry prevented of tools, wires or other solid objects of a diameter or thick3 ness greater than 2.5 mm Entry prevented of wires, strips or solid objects of a diameter or thickness 4 greater than 1.0 mm Complete protection against contact with live or moving parts inside the 5 enclosure.

The selection of the proper enclosure is vital to the successful safe operation of AC motors. Machine performance and life can be materially reduced by using an enclosure inappropriate for the application. The customer must recognize the specic environmental conditions and specify the correct enclosure. Reliance Electric can provide application assistance, but must depend on the customer to provide accurate information on the operating conditions. Reliance Electric offers motors in the following enclosures: Open Drip-Proof Totally Enclosed (Non-Ventilated, Fan Cooled, Air Over) Explosion Proof Dust Ignition Proof

Open Drip-Proof Motor (ODP)

An ODP motor is an open machine having all openings limited in size to prevent accidental contact with hazardous parts. Internal parts are protected from drip, splash and falling objects on all horizontal and vertical mounted motors. ODP motors are suitable for general industrial use in indoor locations with relatively clean atmospheres.

Totally Enclosed Motor

A totally enclosed motor is one so enclosed as to prevent the free exchange of air between the inside and the outside of the case but not sufciently enclosed to be termed air-tight. Totally enclosed motors are suitable for use in dusty dirty locations and in humid environments. Totally Enclosed Non-Ventilated - Not equipped for cooling by means external to the enclosing parts. Generally limited to low horsepower ratings or short-time rated motors. Totally Enclosed Fan-Cooled - Exterior surface cooled by external fan on motor shaft. Motor cooling is dependent on motor speed.

Example - IP54 is met by adding XT features to any totally enclosed motor. TEFC-XT, TEFC-XEC and TEFC-XEX all meet the requirements of IP-54.

Explosion Proof and Dust Ignition Proof Motors For Hazardous Locations

Power Supply

Explosion Proof - An Explosion Proof motor is a totally enclosed machine designed to operate safely in an environment in which ammable gas or vapor is present. This is accomplished by limiting the external surface temperature of the motor below the ignition temperature of the hazardous gas or vapor surrounding the motor. Hence it is very important that the end user order a motor with the proper temperature code. Also the enclosure is designed to contain an explosion on the inside of the motor which may be caused by arcing, sparking, or abnormal heat. A ame caused by such an explosion will not propagate the motor ts and ignite the gas or vapor surrounding the motor. An explosion proof motor is suitable for operation in Class I hazardous environment. Dust Ignition Proof - A Dust Ignition Proof motor is a totally enclosed machine designed to operate safely in a ammable dust environment. The motor enclosure prevents the admittance of dust inside the motor. Also the motor is designed to operate cool enough so as not to ignite any dust which might accumulate on the external surface of the motor. Should the motor become blanketed with dust and reduce its normal cooling, winding thermostats will take the motor off line before the motors external surface temperature reaches the ignition temperature of the hazardous dust. A dust-ignition-proof motor is suitable for operation in a Class II hazardous location. The specic dust or gas present in the hazardous location is identied by the group listing for each Class. Certain Reliance Electric AC motors are listed for use in Class I Groups C and D and Class II Groups E, F and G locations depending on the horsepower rating, frame size and enclosure as indicated on the price pages. The user customer is responsible for insuring that the proper UL listed motor is used in a specic hazardous location.

Phase - Motors are designed for either single-phase or three-phase operation as indicated on the price pages. Single-phase motors may be operated on one-phase of a three-phase power supply with the rated voltage. Operation of a three-phase motor on a single-phase supply will result in motor damage.

RPM XL Small DC Motors


Single Phase Motors - standard voltages are 115/230. Three Phase Motors - standard voltage are 190/380, 200, 200/400, 230/460, 208-230/460, 460 and 575 as indicated on the price pages. Specic Denite Purpose motors may have other voltages indicated. Motors rated at 230 or 230/460 volts will operate on a 208 volt supply except that starting and peak running torques at 208 volts will be 20-25% less than at the 230 volt rating. Motors nameplated 208230/460 will operate satisfactorily at 208 volts. Voltage Variation - In accordance with NEMA standards, Reliance motors will operate with +10% variation in rated voltage with rated frequency. Performance within this voltage variation will not necessarily be in accordance with performance at rated voltage. Dual Voltage Motors are easily reconnectable by referring to the information on the motor nameplate. Frequency - Motors are designed for operation on 50 or 60 Hz as specied on the price pages. Many motors designed for operation on 60 Hz power may be operated on 50 Hz power of a lower voltage rating with resulting decrease in speed and horsepower. Refer to Reliance Electric for details. In accordance with NEMA standards Reliance Motors will operate with +5% variation in rated frequency with rated voltage. Performance with this frequency variation will not necessarily be in accordance with performance at rated frequency.

Insulation Class & Temperature Rise

Motor Insulation systems are classied by the maximum total temperature at which the system can be operated without adversely affecting design life. This maximum total temperature has three components. Ambient Temperature = The temperature of the atmosphere in which the motor is operated. 40 C is considered a standard for design purposes.

Torque/NEMA Design Classes

The full load torque of a motor is expressed as follows: Full load torque (ft. lbs) = HP x 5250 Full load speed (rpm)

Temperature Rise = The number of degrees which the insulated motor windings heat up during motor operation Hot Spot Allowance= The value that takes into account the additional temperature variations within the inaccessible spots of a motor winding. these spots are located in the stator slots or coil heads. 10 C is considered a standard for design purposes. Four classes of insulation systems are used in motors. In general, the temperature values are as follows:
Insulation Class A B F H Max Total Temperature @ 1.0 sf 105 C 130 C 155 C 180 C = = = = Components of Max Total Temp. Temperature Hot Spot Ambient Rise Allowance 40 C 55 C 10 C 40 C 40 C 40 C 80 C 105 C 130 C 10 C 10 C 10 C

Since different loads present different torque requirements at starting (breakaway), minimum (pull-up), breakdown (pull-out) and full load, the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has dened four standard design classes A,B,C and D of squirrel cage polyphase induction motors. These design classes are summarized in Table I.

The general torque/speed relationship with the four torque points dened is shown in Figure 1. The NEMA design class is indicated on each price page in this catalog. Most motors are Design B with a few Design A, C & D. For motors having different characteristics than listed, contact Reliance Electric.


The synchronous speed of an AC motor is as follows Synchronous Speed (rpm) = 120 x Power Supply Frequency (HZ) Number of Poles

Proper Matching of the Motors to the Load

RPM XL Small DC Motors

General information on the torque/speed characteristics of the various NEMA design classes is given under TORQUE/NEMA DESIGN CLASSES on the following page. The equipment manufacturer and/or user is responsible for selecting the correct motor rating to drive the load.

The number of poles is a function of motor design. Standard 60 Hz motors are available with synchronous speeds of 3600, 1800, 1200 or 900 rpm. The actual operating speed of an AC induction motor is determined by the synchronous speed and the slip. Slip is the difference between the speed of the rotating magnetic eld (which is always synchronous) and the rotor speed. Slip generally increases with an increase in motor torque; therefore, actual operating speed generally decreases with an increase in the driven load torque.

Evaluating Motor Efciency

The graphs below show how the Duty Master XE motor efciency and watts loss curves compare to standard industrial averages. The table below shows the results of these comparisons in terms of annual energy savings. As you can see, a 150 HP XE motor could save you $2,831 a year in power costs over standard 150 HP designs, based on electrical costs of $.08 per kilowatt hour and 7200 hours of full load operation per year. The table also shows comparable savings for other motors in the XE motor line. Your actual savings may vary, depending on the electrical rates, load conditions and annual operating hours of your application. In the long term, the decision to invest in an energy efcient Duty Master XE motor depends on the energy savings it can provide. Actual energy savings depend upon many variables including operating hours, cost of power, duty cycles, and line voltages to name a few. Tax rates and the future cost of money will also inuence the decision.

Assume that a 25 horsepower motor is going to operate for three 8-hour shifts per day, on a 6-day work week, for 50 weeks per year. Thus, total hours per year are 7200. Also, assume the cost of electricity at $.08 per kilowatt hour. The savings, using the XE motor with an efciency of 93%, compared to the 88% which is the industry average for a standard efcient motor, is calculated as follows Kilowatts Saved = HP x .746

However, when evaluating a partial load operation, remember to use the horsepower, efciency, and appropriate hours of operation at the desired load point. A variable duty cycle calculation is simply the summation of several partial load calculations.

Inertia Loads
t= t=
WK2 x rpm 308 x T WK x rpm 308 x T

Additional Savings

WK2 = Inertia in lb. ft2 t = accelerating time in sec. T = Avg. accelerating torque lb. ft

This payback analysis also does not take into account many additional savings you should consider. Longer motor life as a result of cooler operating temperatures Additional cost savings from improved power factor Improved partial load efciencies of the XE motor Improved reliability with a more forgiving electrical design Quieter operation Greater exibility for use on adjustable frequency power supplies This is why so many companies specify Reliance Duty Master XE energy efcient motors for all their applications.
