Danish term or phrase: leje
Hi - I'm trying to verify the best English translation for "leje" in the following context. Is "layer" best pertaining to wiring or "bearing" pertaining to motors? It appears in the following course description in the second paragraph. Thanks for your help!

Deltageren kan selvstændigt opbygge, afprøve og idriftsætte relestyringer og motorer, med vægt på stjerne/trekant starter, adskilte viklinger, dahlander, softstarter og frekvensomformer, herunder anvende dokumentation efter Dansk Standard, eksempelvis funktionsskema, nøgle- og hovedstrømsskemaer samt enstregsskemaer.

Deltageren kan udføre fejlfinding på en AC-motor med måleudstyr som eksempelvis multimeter og megger, samt overholde stærkstrømsbekendtgørelsens krav til prøvning af motorer. Deltageren kan vurdere tilstanden af lejer samt anvende måleudstyr for opretning af motorer.

Deltageren kan systematisk tejlfinde på automatiske maskiner og anlæg, der indeholder motorstyringer, relestyringer og PLC styringer eller kombinationer heraf.

The Electric Motor - Edison Tech Center

Winding or "Coil"- copper wires wound around a core to used to create or receive electromagnetic energy.

Wire used in the windings MUST be insulated. In some photos you will see what looks like bare copper wire windings, it is not, it is simply a enameled with a clear coating.

Copper is the most common material for windings. Aluminum is also used but must be thicker to carry the same electrical load safely. Copper windings allow for a smaller sized motor.

Burning out a motor, troubleshooting:
If a motor is run for too long or at excessive load, it may "burn up". This means that that the high temperature caused the winding insulation to break down or melt, the windings then short when they touch and the motor is damaged. You can also burn up a motor by putting more voltage into it than the winding wires are rated for. In that case the wire will melt at the weakest point, severing the connection. You can test a motor to see if it has burned out this way by testing for Ohms (resistance) on a multi-meter. In general you want to look for black marks in the windings when you check a motor.

According to the dictionary (Ordbogen.com), leje is a bearing.

Example sentence(s):
  • Når motoren står stille, "synker" aksler ned i lejerne. Når motoren kører, presses olie ind, så akslerne "flyder"
