I don't know. Some devices are factory sealed, but you still sometimes need a seal downstream.do you need an EY seal fitting then?
A capacitor start motor would have a contact to open the start capacitor circuit, but could still be sealed and require no additional sealing. One needs to look at motor information to know for certain.I don't think I have ever used an EY when connecting to a C1D1 motor.
They aren't an arcing device and I don't think one is required.
I cannot remember ever seeing that word used on an XP motor.I'd like to see the catalog cut.
"Potted" basically means "contained"; as in a potential explosion would be contained in the motor enclosure. It isn't commonly used, but it isn't improper either. I'm more concerned that there isn't a nameplate or label on the motor enclosure indicating it is factory sealed.I cannot remember ever seeing that word used on an XP motor.
I have seen it on motors intended to be submerged though.
but it is not like I have looked real closely at XP motor spec sheets all that much.
ETA: So I went and looked at a Baldor XP motor cut sheet. Guess what? It uses the word "potted" to describe the seal between the junction box and the motor.
So why would you believe it is? As I mentioned to tkb above, while you can see the "potting", can you tell if it is a sufficient seal without a manufacturer's marked certification?pics of the nameplates on the peckerhead and the motor. no indication it is factory sealed.
also the catalog sheet shared by our colleague is the cat. sheet for the motor we are using.
