Stock ratings available include 1 through 50 hp in Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled (TEFC) or Open Drip Proof (ODP) Foot Mounted designs along with 1/2 through 5 hp in TEFC, C-Face Foot Mounted designs. The internally mounted Baldor Shaft Grounding Brush also prevents common mode voltage, which can lead to voltage spikes that damage the bearings.
