CEM motors generate anywhere from 1 to 100 horsepower, at either 1,200, 1,800 or 3,600 RPM. Voltage ratings are 208-230/460 VAC. Full load amps can be as low as 1.4 A on 1 hp motors or as high as 112 A on 100 hp motors.

These motors are suitable for mounting in any position using a foot mounted fastening system.

Frames are either heavy-gauge steel or cast iron, and conduit boxes are gasketed to seal the system from contaminants. Motors with the TR suffix have roller bearings for heavy belted loads; otherwise, standard ball bearings come stock. The Class F insulation protects the motor from extreme temperature rise.

Efficiency is specified at 89.5 percent for a 100 percent load.
