New motor starting controller provides one solution.

The U.S. has not enacted a wide-reaching, industrial energy efficiency bill since 1992 when the Energy Efficiency Policy Act was passed.

Water and wastewater systems in the United States use a tremendous amount of power.

In the past year, the rate of acceleration in the cost of raw materials (including steel, iron ore, copper and aluminum) has reached unprecedented levels in the pump and rotating equipment industries.

After spending money on a powerful new pump and the motor to run it, the next big decision is how to connect the two in a way that maximizes their efficiencies and protects them from normal wear and tear.

The industrial motor world has a new specification available for defining the requirements of general purpose, severe duty motors in the 250- to 3,000-hp range.

Due to the delicate nature of the cranberry, pump failure is not an option.

I received many comments on my four-part series on AC Power, and most of them were very positive.

With highly reliable electrical systems, protective relays may be called upon to operate very infrequently.

In the past year, the rate of acceleration in the cost of raw materials (including steel, iron ore, copper and aluminum) has reached unprecedented levels in the pump and rotating equipment industries.

An argument in favor of IEEE-841's provision for motor bearing protection.

A paper or an electronic work order system can be used to capture alignment data.

Why and how do leading OEMs choose a variable speed motor for their equipment?

All electric motors (motors) have a housing that contains the working components of the motor.

It has been said that Washington, D.C., is the home of the largest invertebrate population in the U.S.

The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA), which restates and broadens the definition of General Purpose Electric Motors, goes into effect on December 19, 2010.

Introduced in June 2010, Super-E Motors with AEGIS Shaft Grounding Ring are used in commercial and industrial applications.

The frame sizes (physical dimensions) of AC motors have changed substantially through the years. Originally, they were considerably larger than those in use today. This increased size was the result of inefficiency and the need to dissipate heat.

This month we will quickly look at the load types that comprise a typical AC circuit.

Aligning an electric motor coupled to a large air blower required multiple measurements.
