One of the most important aspects of making motors interchangeable is ensuring that nameplate information is common among manufacturers. International standards such as NEMA and IEC provide key electrical, mechanical, construction and reliability parameters on the motor to aid with the consumer expectations of “standard” motors from different manufacturers that meet or exceed the minimum performance parameters.

This 3 -hour course provides a brief overview of how to read and interpret motor nameplate information and highlights the major differences between National Electric Manufacturers Association (NEMA) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) motor standards.

This course is of interest to professional engineers, service technicians, energy auditors, operational and maintenance personnel, sales and marketing personnel, and anyone who specifies, buys, maintains or replaces motors.
