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 your equipment!
