Ever wonder what ODP, TE and DIP mean in relation to motors? Okay, I'm sure you have been kept up nights wondering... you can now rest easy, here is what they mean!
ODP= Open Drip Proof Motors
As it states, this is an open type of motor that limited size openings to prevent contact with moving or hazardous parts. Internal parts of ODP motors are protected from drop, splash and falling objects. Best used in a relatively clean environment.
You guessed it - these type of motors are... enclosed! These type of motors can be used in dusty, dirty and humid environments because the inside of the motor is protected.
There are further choices here:
- TENV - totally enclosed non-ventilated
- TEFC - totally enclosed fan-cooled
- TEBC- totally enclosed blower-cooled
DIP= Dust Ignition Proof Motors for Hazardous Locations
You would use this type of motor in flammable, dusty environments.
This type of industrial electric motor is suitable for operation in a Class II hazardous environment.
