• Lead wires are non-wicking, and are colored and numbered for easy identification during installation

• Installable in all mounting positions

• Standard dual voltage and dual rotation

• New encapsulation process with better materials ensure complete filling of the motors and curing of the epoxy encapsulation

• All stainless steel exterior

• Nameplate information is permanently etched into the frame

• Conduit box on TEFC motors rotates 360 degrees

• Inverter Duty IRIS insulation system

• Corrosion resistant coating applied to rotor
