I have a question about the setting of an overload. We have several applications where the motor may have a SF of 1.37 or 1.4 (water pumping). The motor operates around 125% of FLA and will trip the overload after sometime of running since it is a continuous applicaiton. Is there anything in the Code that gives us some leeway to adjust this setting up just a little bit to account for the larger SF or is only 125% allowed?
Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.
