NEMA Ratings Explained

NEMA 1, NEMA 4X, NEMA 3R... in the industrial world, we see NEMA ratings everywhere. What do they actually mean?

Since I am the one writing the blog, I am going to focus on the NEMA ratings I see most often. One of the benefits of blogging is that you get to pick what to talk about!

Let's begin with what a NEMA rating even is - I was surprised to find that NEMA ratings can be used on products, processes or procedures. They are basically standards that represent general practices in the industry.

NEMA 1 - this is a big one for our variable frequency drives. It means 'general purpose indoor'. Are you still wondering what it means? The enclosure will provide a degree of protection from anyone accessing hazardous parts and it will also keep 'solid foreign objects' from getting in.

NEMA 4 and NEMA 4X - Another popular one for us, whether for enclosures or high performance AC drives, but what does it mean and what does adding the 'X' do? NEMA 4 is watertight and dust-tight for inside and outdoor applications. NEMA 4X is everything listed, plus corrosion-resistant.

The 4 rating does everything NEMA 1 does plus it has protection against water getting in; rain, sleet, snow, splashing water or hose directed water. NEMA 4/4X will also not be damaged by ice forming on the enclosure. 4X also adds protection against corrosion.

NEMA 3R is popular for our systems integration division. You will see them used mostly in outdoor applications for wiring and junction boxes. NEMA 3R is rainproof and sleet/ice-resistant for outdoor applications. They do not have gasketed sealing surfaces and some will have hasps for padlocking.

If you are looking for NEMA rated products, gives us a call! 800-325-WOLF. We have in-house tech support ready to help you find the best products for your applications.

Teco Medium Voltage Solid State Starters, 2,300-6,900 Volts TEAMmaster

Protect your machinery investment with our medium voltage soft starter!

Protect your machinery by controlling motor torque, reducing current demand and creating more stable voltage!
 
Great option for municipalities.
 
 
 

Today’s global economy is in many ways driven by AC induction motors. Industrial facilities worldwide depend on these motors to drive the machinery that enhances their efficiency and increases their production output.

However, many industrial operations unknowingly subject their machinery to severe stress during motor start-up. When motor operation is activated, high inrush currents flow into the motor’s windings, producing very high levels of torque.

This torque at the motor’s shaft can result in a substantial shock to the driven equipment. The result may be belts slipping or breaking, couplings disengaging, and gears or other components failing completely.

Therefore, it is often a cost-effective decision to protect your machinery investment with a TEAMmaster™ medium voltage soft starter. Available only from TECO-Westinghouse Motor Company, the TEAMmaster™ protects your machinery by controlling motor torque.

The TEAMmaster™ also reduces current demand and creates a more stable line voltage, which benefits facilities that have weak electrical systems.

 

The TEAMmaster™ Medium Voltage Starter is a microprocessor controlled solid state reduced voltage starter for three phase induction motors. The starter provides a closed-loop current ramp for smooth step less motor acceleration, supplied in a free standing enclosure.

Enclosures are available in NEMA 12 or NEMA 3R configurations. The medium voltage enclosure consists of two distinct compartments: The medium voltage or power pole section is located in the main body of the enclosure, whereas the low voltage section containing the control logic is located behind the door as an isolated compartment.

Each starter is supplied with a load break isolation switch, Class “R” motor fuses, inline vacuum contactor, solid state power poles, and a vacuum bypass contactor. This bypass connector is used to bypass the SCR power poles once the motor is up to full speed.

The logic control incorporates the MX3 computer that has all the circuitry required to drive the power semiconductors, which are located in the power section.

TEAMmaster™ starters provide solid state reduced voltage starting for normal operation and full voltage emergency back-up starting, with complete electronic motor protection at the flip of a switch.

This unique redundant design is ideal for critical applications where downtime is extremely disruptive and cannot be tolerated. MX3 solid state controls profile precise digital starting and stopping, motor protection, metering, diagnostics and communications... standard.

TEAMmaster™ medium voltage soft starters provide several advantages including:

Protection of machinery from failure and excessive maintenance caused by mechanical shock during starting or stopping. The TEAMmaster™ provides smooth, step less acceleration and controlled deceleration.

Control of the current ramp during start-up. The TEAMmaster™ protects electrical systems from disruptive voltage drops and power outages caused by motor locked rotor inrush current.

Complete line monitoring, motor control and protection. These functions protect mission-critical motors from failure or unscheduled outages caused by machine or electrical system faults.

Programming capabilities. The TEAMmaster™ includes control and power electronics, as well as bypass and isolation contactors that reduce maintenance and operating costs. A UL listing and a CSA approval.

Pfannenberg's Outdoor Side Mount Cooling Units, NEMA 3R/4

The wide condenser fin spacing filter-free design reduces the amount of maintenance required by the customer. A quick cleaning of the condenser is required less frequently verses the competition's models, while capacity is not compromised by easy clogging of the condenser core.

Utilizing rugged, long-lasting backward curved impeller fans, the cooling units can go twice as long before needing service verses a typical blower style fan that has smaller, low-cost and high maintenance bearings.

The backward curve fan also has a natural right angle air path that allows cooling units to capture hot air from the top of the electrical cabinet and deposit cool, dry air to the bottom of the cabinet and underneath critical components on the panel.

Utilizing a maintenance free design, Pfannenberg implements a hermetically sealed design that eliminates gasketed valves and the leak source for many other A/C unit designs. Therefore, these cooling units do not need annual maintenance to determine if the unit is properly charged with R134a refrigerant.

Controlling temperature and alarm setting via dip-switches, preventing airflow short cycling, high pressure switch alarm, on/off control of compressor with built-in delay timer and a LED lamp with four different flashing sequences. The control board is located in inner air circuit for protection from heat and dirt.

Pfannenberg strives to provide a relatively maintenance-free design. All designs have additional options including:
Filter Kits Option - for special applications like dogwood seeds or desert sand that need an external filter to prevent clogging of the condenser core.
Enclosure Heater Option - for special applications where heating is required to control condensate or keep electronics above a desired temperature range in cold climates.
Voltage Options - Many of our cooling units have been designed for both 50/60 Hz applications as well as 400 or 460 V operations with a simple jumper change in the e-box.

  • Manufactured by Pfannenberg
  • 900-24,000 BTU sizing
