The standards appearing in this publication have been developed by the Motor and Generator Section and approved for publication as Standards of the National Electrical Manufacturers Association. They are intended to assist users in the proper selection and application of motors and generators. These standards are revised periodically to provide for changes in user needs, advances in technology, and changing economic trends. All persons having experience in the selection, use, or manufacture of electric motors and generators are encouraged to submit recommendations that will improve the usefulness of these standards.
Practical information concerning performance, safety, test, construction, and manufacture of alternating-current and direct-current motors and generators within the product scopes defined in the applicable section or sections of this publication is provided in these standards. Although some definite-purpose motors and generators are included, the standards do not apply to machines such as generators and traction motors for railroads, motors for mining locomotives, arc-welding generators, automotive accessory and toy motors and generators, machines mounted on airborne craft, etc.
