Groschopp’s Standard IP Ratings

January 25, 2016

Ingress Protection (IP) ratings are used universally to classify the level of protection that electric motors have from solids and liquids. We offer standard IP ratings that will work for many applications, but motors working in harsh environments or that need to be washed down regularly should consider having the IP level increased to ensure protection. Modifications can be made to Groschopp motors allowing them to reach an IP66 rating. This means the motor is fully enclosed and protected against dust and can be temporarily flooded by water (limited ingress protection). Below is a list of standard motors with their corresponding IP rating.

Standard IP for DC Motors

Groschopp’s standard DC motors are built using either IP40 or IP44 ratings, which means they are protected from solid materials over 1mm in thickness and have either no protection from water (IP40) or are protected from water sprays from all directions with limited ingress (IP44).IP ratings are used to classify the level of protection electric motors have from solids and liquids.

  • PM6013 – IP40
  • PM6023 – IP44
  • PM6015 – IP40
  • PM6025 – IP44
  • PM8014 – IP40
  • PM8018 – IP40
  • PM8024 – IP44
  • PM8028 – IP44
  • PM8304 – IP40
  • PM8308 – IP40
  • PM10816 – IP40
  • PM10818 – IP40

Standard IP for AC and Brushless Motors

Groschopp’s standard IP rating for AC and Brushless motors is IP44. Again, this means these motors are protected from solid objects over 1mm, and sprays of water from all directions with limited ingress.Groschopp has a standard IP rating of IP40 or IP44.

  • AC65 – IP44
  • AC80 – IP44
  • AC90 – IP44
  • AC100 – IP44
  • BL65 – IP44
  • BL80 – IP44

How to use the Motor Search Tool

Narrow your search by selecting motor type, gearbox, voltage, and phase options for your desired motor.

Select a dominant variable: choose one of the three parameters to narrow your search. The selected variable determines which slider bar you will be able to manually move.

Use the slider corresponding to your dominant variable to further narrow your motor selection. The other sliders will automatically move to show available ranges based on the range of your selected variable.

Results will upload as your search criteria changes. If you have any questions regarding your results or how to use the search tool, you can chat with us using the green tab on the left-hand side of your screen.


Note: Groschopp Universal motors are custom built to fit your application so no additional options are available to narrow the search. Selecting the Universal motor type will prompt a message taking you to the Universal product page.
