*IEEE Std. 117.
**Used in European equipment.

Insulation systems are arranged in order of their insulation level and classified by a letter symbol or by a numerical value.
The numerical value relates to the temperature classification of the insulation system.
The temperature classification indicates the maximum (hot-spot) temperature at which the insulation system can be operated for normal expected service life.
In general, all materials used in a given insulation system should be rated for temperatures equal to, or exceeding, the temperature classification of the system.
