Bearing: Rollers and balls placed between moving parts to reduce friction and wear.
Roller Bearing: A special bearing system with cylindrical rollers capable of handling belted applications, too large for standard ball bearings.
Open Bearing: A ball bearing that does not have a shield, seal or guard on either of the two sides of the bearing casing.
Sleeve Bearings: A type of bearing with no rolling elements, where the motor shaft rides on a film of oil.
Thrust Bearings: Special bearings used to handle higher than normal axial forces exerted on the shaft of the motor as is the case with some fan or pump blade mountings.
Bearings: Are used to reduce friction and wear while supporting rotating elements. For a motor it must provide a relatively rigid support for the output shaft. The bearing acts as the connection point . . . View Full Definition
Bearing Rtd: A probe used to measure bearing temperature to detect an overheating condition. The RTD's resistance varies with the temperature of the bearings.
Bearing Cursor: The radial line inscribed on a transparent disk which can be rotated manually about an axis coincident with the center of the ppi. It is used for bearing determination. Other lines inscribed . . . View Full Definition
Electronic Bearing Line (EBL): An EBL control is used to display the relative or true bearing of a target on the display. The ebl is moved with the cursor, and the bearing is usually read at the bottom of the screen in de . . . View Full Definition
Bearing Point: A point where a bearing or structural weight is concentrated and transferred to the foundation

Chromogenic Materials: Color photographic materials which form dyes during processing.
