Dykman will bring some of the leading motor manufacturers IEEE841 spec product and tear down for viewing from the inside out. The manufacturers included in the presentation will be from GE, Toshiba, TECO Westinghouse, Siemens, Baldor, US Motors, WEG, and Marathon. The reason we choose the 841 spec is simply because it is the tightest motor spec available and is known as each manufactures top offering. With a tight spec, they should be close to the same. But the presentation will show that all motors are not built the same. We will discuss the components of the electric motors starting with the hardware, end bells, rabbit foot connections, nameplates, j-boxes, ground lugs, safety hooks and more. These materials do not necessarily make the motor run better but gives insight to if manufactures product is being built by cutting corners, going the extra mile, or somewhere in between. We then direct our attention to the meat and potatoes of these offerings starting with the fans, bearing systems, rotor and stator, core plate material, insulation values, thermal margin, balancing procedures, tropicalization coating, and windings. We encourage questions and participants to be hands on.
