Science / Weather / Temperature: The measure of molecular motion or the degree of heat of a substance. It is measured on an arbitrary scale from absolute zero, where the molecules theoretically stop moving. It is also the degree of hotness or coldness. In surface observations, it refers primarily to the free air or ambient temperature close to the surface of the earth.

Temperature Rise

Technology / Motors / Temperature Rise: Some of the electrical energy losses inherent in motors are converted to heat causing some of the motor parts to heat up when the motor is running. The heated parts are at a higher temperature than th MORE

Temperature Tests

Technology / Motors / Temperature Tests: Tests conducted to determine the temperature rise of certain parts of a motor above the ambient temperature, when operating under specific conditions. MORE

Air Temperature Switch

Technology / Motors / Air Temperature Switch: A device used in air hooded motors to detect the temperature of the exhausted air. When used in this manner an air temperature switch will detect blockage in the cooling air system or long-term motor MORE
