FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote international

co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To this end and

in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications, Technical Reports,

Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC Publication(s)”). Their

preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested in the subject dealt with

may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-governmental organizations liaising

with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely with the International Organization for

Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence between

any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of patent

rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 60034-7 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 2: Rotating

machinery.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition, published in 1992, and its

Amendment 1:2000. It constitutes a technical revision.
The main technical changes with regard to the previous edition are as follows:
5.4 Note on twin motors added.
5.5 Reference to 4.3 instead of duplication of text.
5.7 New subclause on marking of shaft inclination or declination.

1 Scope

This part of IEC 60034 specifies the IM Code, a classification of types of construction, mounting

arrangements and the terminal box position of rotating electrical machines.
Two systems of classification are provided as follows:

– Code I (see Clause 4): An alpha-numeric designation applicable to machines with end-

shield bearing(s) and only one shaft extension.

– Code II (see Clause 5): An all-numeric designation applicable to a wider range of types

of machines including types covered by Code I.
The type of machine not covered by Code II is fully described in words.
The relationship between Code I and Code II is given in Annex A.
2 Normative references
There are no normative references in this document.

with the IEC also participate in this preparation. The IEC collaborates closely with the International

Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between the

two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of the IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an

international consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation

from all interested National Committees.

3) The documents produced have the form of recommendations for international use and are published in the form

of standards, technical specifications, technical reports or guides and they are accepted by the National

Committees in that sense.

4) In order to promote international unification, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC International

Standards transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional standards. Any

divergence between the IEC Standard and the corresponding national or regional standard shall be clearly

indicated in the latter.

5) The IEC provides no marking procedure to indicate its approval and cannot be rendered responsible for any

equipment declared to be in conformity with one of its standards.

6) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this International Standard may be the subject

of patent rights. The IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 60034-7: Classification of types of construction, mounting

arrangements and terminal box position (IM Code), has been prepared by IEC technical

committee 2: Rotating machinery.

This third edition cancels and replaces edition 2.1 published in 2000. It constitutes a technical

revision. The main technical changes with regard to the previous edition are as follows:

Clause Change
5.4 Note on twin motors added
5.5 Reference to Clause 4.3 instead of duplication of text
5.7 New clause on marking of shaft inclination or declination

This publication will remain unchanged until 20xx. At this date, the publication will be

• reconfirmed;
• withdrawn;
• replaced by a revised edition, or
• amended.

1 ROTATING ELECTRICAL MACHINES –
3 Part 7: Classification of types of construction, mounting arrangements
4 and terminal box position (IM Code)
8 Section 1: Scope

9 This part of IEC 60034 specifies the IM Code, a classification of types of construction,

10 mounting arrangements and the terminal box position of rotating electrical machines.

11 Two systems of classification are provided as follows:

12 – Code I (see section 2): An alpha-numeric designation applicable to machines with end-

13 shield bearing(s) and only one shaft extension.

14 – Code II (see section 3): An all-numeric designation applicable to a wider range of types

15 of machines including types covered by Code I.

16 The type of machine not covered by Code II should be fully described in words.

17 The relationship between Code I and Code II is given in annex A.
18 Section 2: Normative references
19 Section 3: Definitions
20 For the purposes of this part of IEC 60034, the following definitions apply:
21 3.1 type of construction

22 the arrangement of machine components with regard to fixings, bearing arrangement and

23 shaft extension
24 (IEV 60411-13-34)
25 3.2 mounting arrangement

26 the orientation on site of the machine as the whole with regard to shaft alignment and position

27 of fixings
28 (IEV 60411-13-35)
29 3.3 shaft extension
30 a portion of a shaft extending beyond an extreme bearing
31 (IEV 60411-13-07)

32 NOTE The bearing may be on the machine itself or be part of an assembly comprising a machine and (an)

33 additional bearing(s).

35 3.4 drive-end of a machine (D-end)
36 that end of the machine which accommodates the shaft end
37 (IEV 60411-13-36)

38 NOTE This is normally the driving end of a motor or the driven end of a generator.

39 Where for some machines the above definition is inadequate, the D-end is defined as follows:

40 a) Machine with two shaft extensions of different diameter: the end with the larger shaft

41 diameter;

42 b) Machine with a cylindrical shaft extension and a conical shaft extension of the same

43 diameter: the end with cylindrical shaft extention;

44 c) Machine with other arrangements: according to IEC 60034-8 if applicable; otherwise by

45 agreement.

46 NOTE The outer diameter of a forged-on flange is taken to be the diameter of the shaft extension.

47 3.5 non-drive end of the machine (N-end)
48 that end of the machine opposite to the drive end
49 (IEV 60411-13-37).
51 Section 4: Code I (alpha-numeric designation)
52 4.1 Designation of machines with horizontal shafts

53 In Code I, a machine with a horizontal shaft is designated by the code letters IM (International

54 Mounting), followed by a space, the letter B, one or two numerals as shown in Table 1 and an

55 optional letter as shown in clause 4.3.
