• ### THE MYSTERY OF MOTOR FRAME SIZE

A key part of motor interchangeability has been the standardization of frame sizes. This means that the same horsepower speed and enclosure will normally have the same frame size from different motor manufacturers. Thus a motor from one manufacturer can be replaced with a similar motor from another

Mar 16 2018 · Check the motor nameplate for a service factor. Many motors are rated with a service factor of 1.15 which means the motor can be overloaded by 15 without damage. If the motor in the example from step 2 had a service factor of 1.15 then its overload would be acceptable and the motor could be operated without damage.

The ratio of load inertia to motor inertia (essentially rotor inertia) gives a measure of how effectively the motor can control the load.A high inertia ratio indicates the system that will have difficulty controlling the load. A low inertia ratio (e.g. 4 1 or 1 1) indicates that the motor will do a very effective job of controlling the load but it also reveals that the motor may be oversized
