WP2 refers to weather protected type 2 electric motors that have enclosures designed to protect the interior components from normal outdoor environments. WP2 motors utilize screens and filters over the ventilation openings to prevent large particles and water from entering the motor. Since WP2 motors offer more protection than open motors, they are commonly used for pumps, fans, and other equipment exposed to moisture or dirt.

What Are WP2 Motors?

Certified to NEMA’s WP2 enclosure rating, these motors can be oriented in any position and endure exposure to dripping water, splashing, washdowns, and some condensation buildup. Their seals, gaskets, drains and other features prevent excess water from entering the electrical components.

WP2 industrial motors provide a cost-effective solution for pumps, conveyors, outdoor equipment and other applications where motors encounter splashing water or high humidity. With NEMA frame sizes from fractional to 500 horsepower, WP2 motors deliver moderate water protection to keep your processes running smoothly even in wet environments.
