6.2 Definitions. - The following definitions shall apply to the various technical terms wherever such terms
appear in this specification:
6.2.1 Continuous duty. - Continuous duty is a requirement of service that demands operation at a sub-
stantially constant lead for an indefinitely long time (see 18.104.22.168).
6.2.2. Intermittent duty. - Intermittent duty is a requirement of service that demands operation for
alternate intervals of (a) load and no-load, (b) load and rest, or (c) load, no-load, and rest (see 22.214.171.124).
6.2.3 Varying duty. - Varying duty is a requirement of service that demands operation at loads and for
intervals of time, both of which may be subject to wide variation (see 126.96.36.199).
6.2.4 Short-time duty. - Short-time duty is a requirement of service that demands operation at a sub-
stantially constant load for a short and definitely specified time (see 188.8.131.52).
6.2.5 Constant-speed motor. - A constant-speed motor is one of which the normal speed of operation
is constant or practically constant; for example, a synchronous motor or an induction motor with small slip
6.2.6 Multispeed motor. - A multispeed motor is one which can be operated at any one of two or more
definite speeds, each being practically independent of the load. In the case of multispeed permanent-split
capacitor and shaded pole motors, the speeds are dependent upon the load (see 3.1.10).
6.2.7 Varying speed motor. - A varying speed motor is one the speed of which varies with the load,
ordinarily decreasing when the load increases, such as a high-slip motor (see 3.1.10).
6.2.8 Adjustable varying speed motor. - An adjustable varying speed motor is one the speed of which
can be adjusted gradually, but when once adjusted for a given load, will vary in considerable degree with
change in load, such as a wound rotor induction motor (see 3.1.10).
6.2.9 Front (of motor). - The front of a motor is the end opposite the coupling.
6.2.10 Back (of motor). - The back of a motor is the end which carries the coupling or driving pulley.
6.2.11 Capacitor-start motor. - A capacitor-start motor is a capacitor motor in which the capacitor phase
is in the circuit only during the starting period (see 3.1.11).
6.2.12 Permanent-split capacitor motor. - A permanent split capacitor motor is a capacitor motor having
the same value of capacitance for both starting and running conditions (see 3.1.11).
