Hi all;p;

"motor shall be designed for start-up immediately after shut down, following a minimum running time of 15 mins, on a continuous, repeating basis, without overheating or damage in an ambient air temperature of 250C for min. 2 hrs"

Is it necessary to have a 30 sec interval between stopping and starting the motor ?

Not if the motor is designed to do so more rapidly. Take thaat spec to a motor manufacturer and tell them you want a motor rated for this duty cycle. If they say they can't, move on because someone will take it on.

The name of the game is......... get the heat out.

Force ventillation is one way .... but an ambient of 250C...?????

What class insulation?
Class H : 180C
Class N : 200C
Class ?

With Class H or even Class N, force-vent would be useless unless some means of cooling the air is provided; i.e. water cooled heat exchanger, or A/C, etc..

As jraef said.... a proper and experienced motor mfgr. should be able to design a product that would be able to meet the specs.
Question is how large is your budget ? It won't be inexpensive.

As to time between stop and re-start ... sufficient time to allow stored energy in winding inductance to dissipate to near zero before restart....is not unreasonable.
