Motor overloads are sized on nameplate flc. NOT table value flc. The reason for this is that the overloads must be responsive to the characteristics of a specific motor.

So find the flc from the nameplate and multiply by the percent which corresponds to the motor you are working with. Listen to the audio support for instructions.
