  3. Maximum Voltage Frequency (Start of Constant HP Range)
  4. Maximum Frequency
  5. RPM (1) - Beginning of Constant Power Range (corresponds with #3)
  6. Maximum RPM - Maximum speed of the spindle
  7. KiloWatt rating at S1 Duty Cycle
  8. Horsepower rating at S1 Duty Cycle
  9. Rated Current at the given voltage
  10. Serial Number - typically in 2 locations
  11. Spindle Model Number (See example)


The example below shows details of the spindle model number structure. In some cases, the nameplate will show only a portion of the full part number and configuration. It is important to know configuration details to help identify your spindle and tool interface when you contact PDS.
