FAQs Motor Questions Temperature Rise

Temperature Rise

Temperature Rise – The amount by which a motor, operating under rated conditions, is hotter than its surroundings. On most motors, manufacturers have replaced the Rise rating on the motor nameplate with a listing of the Ambient temperature rating, insulation class and service factor.

Note: A rating of 40°C Rise is not the same as a rating of 40°C Ambient; see AmbientAmbient
