ANSI/IEEE 290-1980 - IEEE Standard for Electric Couplings; Part I - General, Rating, Performance Characteristics; Part II - Test Procedures

Description: Electric couplings are widely used to transmit mechanical torque from one rotating member to another. They are distinguished from mechanical couplings in that their torque transmitting capability is initiated, and is frequently controlled, by the action of an electromagnetic field. This IEEE standard covers the more generally applicable performance characteristics and conducting and reporting of the tests for determining the performance characteristics of electric couplings.
