Discover Our Vast Inventory of Electric Motors

When you need a NEMA electric motor that is rated for low or medium voltage, we are your choice motor provider. We offer a comprehensive selection of AC, DC, horizontal and vertical motors. Our NEMA electric motors are capable of handling heavy-duty work with mining and aggregate. We also carry general-purpose motors.

TAW’s comprehensive inventory of the best-in-class NEMA electric motors includes:

Horizontal and Vertical NEMA Motors:

  • Explosion Proof: This type of enclosure is used for hazardous applications. It can resist against explosions from inside the casing of the motor.
  • Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers 841 (IEEE841): Also referred to as a NEMA Premium® motor, the IEEE841 exceeds the requirements set by the IEEE. This is the global standard for motors used in extreme conditions and is only available for horizontal NEMA motors.
  • Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled (TEFC): Enclosed motors are used in applications where contaminants may be present like paper mills and chemical plants. This type of motor is most used in an industrial environment.
  • Open Drip Proof (ODP): These open enclosures allow cool air to flow freely using internal fans to help move air. ODP motors permit airflow while preventing liquids and solids from going into the enclosure.
  • Weather Protected I (WPI): These units are typically installed outside and are designed to minimize the entry of rain and dust.
  • American Petroleum Institute 541/547 (API541/547): These motors fit the requirements of API standards and are compliant with oil and gas applications. This standard is available only for horizontal NEMA motors.
  • Weather Protected II (WPII): This type of enclosure is used for pumps requiring a high level of protection. Ventilation is directed in a way that airborne particles cannot access the electric parts of the motor. Air velocity is minimized as well so dirt and moisture cannot enter.
