3.8.1. Clockwise rotation stipulation

The rotational sense of an electrical machine signifies the rotational direction of the rotor. The rotational sense is always determined with an eye on the shaft end.

Clockwise rotation prevails where the shaft rotates in clockwise direction. Anti-clockwise running is termed left operation.
