2.0 The Downside of Not Maintaining Motor Performance:
Whether it’s a production process that includes several electric motors or a single motor operating one piece of machinery, the original design specifications assumed a certain efficiency, performance, and power output for the overall system to operate as required. While total motor failure will shut down a given system, with the resulting downsides being economical, lack of reputation, and in some cases life critical, a failing motor will also impact the overall efficiency of a system. System designers select NEMA-certified motors because they are designed and manufactured to be best in class.
