vibration. If the cause cannot be found and corrected,

Frequency of starts and load
When a motor starts, it must accelerate the
rotational inertia of its own rotor and that of the
driven equipment from standstill to full speed.
Accordingly, it must transfer and store a larger
amount of energy into the rotating parts in a short
time. An equal amount of energy is dissipated in the
rotor windings in the same short period of time.
During the starting period, current in the
windings are several times the rated value. This
causes heating of the windings at a significantly
greater rate than occurs at full-speed operation. Also,
because magnetic forces are proportional to the
square of the current, forces on the winding end turns
are many times greater than the normal condition.

For the above reasons, the frequency of starts and
the magnitude of rotational inertia of the connected load,
must be limited for squirrel-cage induction and synchronous
motors. The motors covered by this Instruction Book (unless
otherwise stated in the, sales contract), are suitable for
accelerating the rotational inertia of the driven equipment in
accordance with Standard MG 1-21.42. The motors are
suitable for the following frequency of starts.
1.With the motor initially at ambient temperature, two
starts in succession, coasting to rest between starts.
2. With the motor initially at a temperature not
exceeding its rated temperature, one start.
It is recommended that the total number of starts
made in the life of the machine be controlled, with an effort
to minimizing them, since the life of the machine is affected
by the total number of starts.
Wound rotor induction motors have the capability to
accelerate high inertia loads with limited stator current
through the use of external resistance inserted in the rotor
circuit. The motor characteristic is changed by adjusting the
resistance. Most of the energy dissipated in the rotor circuit
during the acceleration is dissipated in the resistor external
to the motor.
Sleeve bearing machines are furnished with an oil
level gauge in each bearing housing.
Identification Instruction for this model to locate the oil
level gauge. The gauges are either bulls eye type, with a
circular glass window, or column type.
With the bulls eye type gauge, the centerline of the
gauge indicates maximum oil level and the bottom of the
gauge indicates minimum oil level
