Protective Enclosures
IP AND NEMA
Protective Enclosures - Non-hazardous Areas IP Protection IP Protection is a European system of classification which is widely accepted internationally, and indicates the degree of protection against the ingress of solid objects, dust, liquids and personal contact. The first numeral indicates the degree of protection against the ingress of solid objects (including parts of the body) and dust. The second numeral indicates the degree of protection against the ingress of water.

IP Enclosure - First Numeral


1st Numeral 0 Degree of Protection Short Description Non-protected Protected against solid objects greater than 50mm Protected against solid objects greater than 12mm Protected against solid objects greater than 2.5mm Protected against solid objects greater than 1.0mm Dust-protected Dust-tight Definition No special protection A large surface of the body, such as a hand (but no protection against deliberate access). Solid objects exceeding 50mm in diameter. Fingers or similar objects not exceeding 80mm in length. Solid objects exceeding 12mm in diameter. Tools, wires, etc. of diameter or thickness greater than 2.5mm. Solid objects exceeding 2.5mm in diameter. Wires, or strips of thickness greater than 1.0mm. Solid objects exceeding 1.0mm in diameter. Ingress of dust is not totally prevented but does not enter in sufficient quantity to interfere with satisfactory operation of the equipment. No ingress of dust.

Fig. A Consider a body mass m acted upon by a single force F, Fig A. The body accelerates in the direction in which the force is acting, at a rate given by: A = F+m After a time t has elapsed, the body has achieved a velocity v, where: v = u + at (u is the initial velocity, before the force F was applied. If the body was initially at rest, u is zero) The distance, s, travelled by the body during time t is s = ut + at2+2 Distance and velocity are related by the following equation, derived from the two previous ones: v2 u2 = 2as The work done by the force in accelerating the body is the product of force and distance: W = Fs The kinetic energy of the body, ie the energy which it possesses by virtue of its motion, is the product of its mass and the square of its velocity: Ek = mv2 +2 Furthermore, since energy is conserved, the work done by the force is equal to the change in the bodys kinetic energy (neglecting losses): W = m(v2 u2) +2 Power is the rate at which work is done, therefore it is the product of force and velocity: P = Fv

Motor Application Formulae


Calculating Horsepower
Once the machine torque requirement is determined, horsepower can be calculated using the formula: HP = T x N 5,250 where, HP = Horsepower T = Torque (ft-lb) N = Base speed of motor (rpm) If the calculated horsepower falls between standard available motor ratings, select the higher available horsepower rating. It is good practice to allow some margin when selecting the motor horsepower. For many applications, it is possible to calculate the horsepower required without actually measuring the torque required. The following useful formulae will help: Conveyors HP (Vertical) = HP (Horizontal) = Weight (lb) x Velocity (FPM) 33,000 Weight (lb) x Velocity (FPM) x Coefficient of Friction 33,000

Fans and Blowers HP = CFM x Pressure (lb/ft2) 33,000 x Efficiency of Fan

Effect of Speed on HP: HP = K1 (RPM)3 Horsepower varies as the 3rd power of power of speed.

T = K2 (RPM)2 Torque varies as the 2nd power of speed Flow = K3 (RPM) HP = HP = Pumps HP = GPM x Head (ft) x Specific Gravity 3960 x % Efficiency of Pump Flow varies directly as the speed

CFM x Pressure (lb/in2) 229 x Efficiency of Fan CFM x Inches of Water Gauge 6356 x Efficiency of Fan

Symbols & Formulae

Specific Gravity of Water = 1.0 1 ft3 per sec. = 448 GPM 1 PSI = A head of 2.309 ft for water weighing 62.36 lb/ft3 at 62F Constant Displacement Pumps Effect of Speed on HP: HP = K (RPM) Horsepower and capacity vary directly as the speed. Displacement pumps under constant head require approximately constant torque at all speeds. Centrifugal Pumps Effect of Speed on HP: HP = K1 (RPM)3 T = Horsepower varies as the 3rd power of speed.

Web Transport Systems and Surface Winders HP = Tension (lb) x Velocity (FPM) 33,000

Note: The tension value used in this calculation is the actual web tension for surface winder applications. For sectional drives, it is the tension differential: downstream tension upstream tension. Center Winders (Control to Base Speed Only) HP = Tension (lb) x Line Speed (FPM) x Buildup 33,000 x Taper Center Winders (Field Control) If Taper x Field Range > Buildup, then, HP = Tension (lb) x Line Speed (FPM) 33,000 If Taper x Field Range < Buildup, then, HP = Tension (lb) x Line Speed (FPM) x Buildup 33,000 x Taper x Field Range NOTE: The preceding formulae for calculating horsepower do not include any allowance for machine function windage or other factors. These factors must be considered when selecting a drive for a machine application.

K2 (RPM)2 Torque varies as the 2nd power of speed. Flow varies directly as the speed.

Flow = K3 (RPM) Efficiency:

500 to 1,000 gal/min 1,000 to 1,500 gal/min Larger than 1,500 gal/min

= 70% to 75% = 75% to 80% = 80% to 85%

Displacement pumps may vary between 50% and 80% efficiency, depending on size of pumps.
