Shaft Grounding, IEEE-841 Motors, and Hazardous Locations

In this Technical Bulletin, we summarize some recent changes to the National Electrical Code and Canadian Electrical Code, and IEEE Standards 841 and 1349.  These updates allow shaft grounding in IEEE Std. 841-compliant motors in non-classified areas.  Shaft grounding can also be used in Class I Division 2 areas when it can be shown not to cause risk of ignition.
