Full-Load-Amperage (FLA) refers to the motor's rated-current at rated-load and rated-voltage. This is the amount of current (amps) the motor will draw from the electrical system when producing its rated output horsepower. This value can also sometimes be referred to as: Running Amps, Rated Amps, or just AMPS.
In our 1 horsepower example, service factor is 1.4 and SFA are 9.8. Therefore, when this motor is asked to supply 1.4 horsepower, it will pull 9.8 amps of current. SFA is sometimes referred to as the “speed limit” or the “redline” of an electric motor.
S.F.A. Service Factor Amps: Current drawn by the motor when operated at service factor load. Unless motor is operated extensively at service factor load (not recommended), use full load current when selecting circuit protection. 9.
LRA - Locked Rotor Amps: The current you can expect under starting conditions when you apply full voltage. It occurs instantly during start up. RLA - Rated Load Amps: The maximum current a compressor should draw under any operating conditions.
An FLA file is an animation project created by Adobe Animate, a program used to draw and publish interactive animations. It contains graphics, video, text elements, audio, and other assets. FLA files are often saved as .SWF files for use on the web as they are viewable in most web browsers with the Flash plugin.
The Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), also known as the Lord's Resistance Movement, is a rebel group and heterodox Christian cult which operates in northern Uganda, South Sudan, the Central African Republic, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
According to former LRA fighters, Kony'sstated goal is to overthrow President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda and create a state based on Kony's interpretation of the biblical Ten Commandments. Since the LRA no longer operates in Uganda, the group's current political goals are not clear.

LRA or Lock Rotor Amps in its unabbreviated form is the current draw of a motor when the rotor is locked. Comparing this to the RLA, run load amps, it becomes obvious that LRA is significantly higher than RLA. If a compressor is drawing it's LRA, something is very wrong.
LRA, your Air Conditioner, and a DC to AC Inverter. Maybe, just depends on the Air Conditioners LRA rating and the inverter starting capacity. LRA means Locked Rotor Amperage. This is the inrush current that any motor has when it first starts up. The motor in this case is the compressor.
singt, RLA: Acronym for "rated load amps". The maximum current a compressor should draw under any operating conditions. Often mistakenly called running load amps which leads people to believe, incorrectly, that the compressor should always pull these amps.
Capillary tube is one of the most commonly used throttling devices in the refrigeration and the air conditioning systems. The capillary tube is a copper tube of very small internal diameter. It is of very long length and it is coiled to several turns so that it would occupy less space.
Central air conditioning also runs on 230 volts. However, because they are permanently mounted, central air units are hard-wired into your electrical box. A typical 2-ton central air unit that puts out 24,000 BTUs will draw between 15 and 20 amps.
Most common voltage ratings for AC units are 115, 125 and 220 volts, and amperage rating can run from 15 to 20 amps. The lower two voltage ratings are common in smaller units, while units with a rating higher than 15,000 BTUs will require a 220-volt circuit.
Low Amps. The majority of modern ceiling fans use less than an amp, averaging between 0.5 and 1 amp, depending on the model and the setting. One amp drawn by a ceiling fan is equivalent to about 120 watts. Low settings use less amperage while higher settings use more.
So how much electricity are you using? We went shopping online and found typical box fans range from 40-100 watts. At the midpoint, 70 watts, if a kilowatt costs 10 cents per hour, the fan would cost 0.7 cents per hour (0.07 kwh x 10 cents). So they'd consume 100 watts per hour.
The average indoor ceiling fan costs around 0.13c to 1.29c per hour to run, or between $1.90 and $18.86 each year. Like most electrical appliances, a ceiling fan's power is measured in watts. The larger the fan, or the faster it needs to spin, the more watts of electricity it consumes – adding to your energy bill.
Here's what uses the most energy in your home:
- Cooling and heating: 47% of energy use.
- Water heater: 14% of energy use.
- Washer and dryer: 13% of energy use.
- Lighting: 12% of energy use.
- Refrigerator: 4% of energy use.
- Electric oven: 3-4% of energy use.
- TV, DVD, cable box: 3% of energy use.
- Dishwasher: 2% of energy use.
Reverse direction for a ceiling fan is a clockwise motion producing an updraft. In the winter, when your heater is running, reversing your ceiling fan moves warm air near the ceiling down to the floor. Now turn your fan back on and enjoy. Many ceiling fans include remote controls with the reverse button.
