## What is class F insulation?

Class F insulation consists of materials or combinations of materials such as mica, glass fibre, asbestos, etc., with suitable bonding, impregnating or coating substances, as well as other materials or combinations of materials, not necessarily inorganic, which by experience or tests can be shown to be capable of …

## What is class F insulation class of motor?

This practice means that a motor with Class F insulation and an 80°C rise is referred to as an ‘F/B’ motor. Modern insulation materials means Class F insulation is commonly used for motor windings. With modern designs, a ‘Class B’ temperature rise is readily achievable.

## What is IP55 protection in motors?

Standard industrial motors having a rating of IP55, normally considered ‘weatherproof’, are suitable for dry areas. The term ‘IP55’ is worth explaining. In simplified terms, the first number ‘5’ means ‘protection against dust’, and the second number ‘5’ means ‘protection against water’.

## What is motor temperature class?

NEMA specifies letter designations for motor insulation temperature ratings. These insulation temperature ratings are denoted as Class: A=105°C, B=130°C, F=155°C, and H=180°C. Further, NEMA specifies allowable temperature rises for motors at full load (and at service factor, if applicable).
