An enclosure protects a motor from contaminants in the environment in which it is operating. In addition, the type of enclosure affects the cooling of the motor. Enclosures are categorized as either open or totally enclosed, and there are different types of enclosures within each category. Open enclosures permit cooling air to flow through the motor. One type of open enclosure is the ODP enclosure.
