Contact symbols are used to indicate an "open" or "closed" path for electrical current
flow. Contacts are shown as "Normally Open" (NO) or "Normally Closed" (NC). Contacts
shown by this symbol require another device to actuate them.
Contacts are normally shown in the state that exists when the activating device is
"de-energized". In this example, a relay is the actuating device. The relay contacts
are shown as normally open when the relay is not energized. A complete electrical
current path does not exist in this state and the light is off. Once the relay is
energized and the circuit path is "closed", the light will be turned on.
Torque is determined by motor horsepower and speed. To find the torque of a given
motor you need to know the horsepower of the motor and the speed of the motor. To
calculate the torque in lb/feet, use the following formula: HP x 5250/ RPM. Thus,
a 1HP, 1750 rpm motor develops 3 lb/feet of torque. At 900 rpm it would develop 6
lb/feet of torque.
Also, you can determine whether or not a motor is being "overloaded" by using a clamp
type meter to measure the amp draw of the motor. A 1HP motor running on 460 volts
will typically draw about 1.8 amps full load current. If the motor is drawing more
current than that during normal operation, it is most likely under-powered. A move
to a larger horsepower motor will help ensure longer, more trouble-free life for
