Electric motors play a vital role in industry, businesses, and homes in the 21st Century. Increasingly, a push for more green sustainable technology has brought innovation and change to the simple electric motor. Each motor has a specific application. Basic motors have been classified into three distinct types: AC motor, DC motor, and specialized motors.

AC Motor Basics

AC motors include both the synchronous motor and the induction motor. The simple electric motor function remains similar. Synchronous motors have been used for both robots and automation. The accuracy of the synchronous motor remains high.

The induction motor uses electromagnetic induction. Main features of the induction motor include low cost, little maintenance, high dependability, and rugged construction. Induction motors are used for commercial, residential, and industrial settings. An induction motor can be used for:

  • Drilling machines
  • Mixers
  • Toys
  • Pumps
  • Compressors
  • Vacuum cleaners
  • Small fans

They have a wide variety of uses. LN Electric Motors can help you find the right AC motors that you need. Whether you need a new motor or a replacement and repair, our seasoned professionals are happy to help you.

DC Motors

DC motor types include compound wound, PMDC motors, Series, and Shunt motors. The DC shunt motors are used for lifts, lathe machines, weaving machines, and industrial tools. Some DC Series Motors has some disadvantages, limiting use. They work for tiny electrical appliances, winches, and hoists. There are also other applications for mobile electric equipment. Call our electric motor experts today about which DC motor will meet your needs.

Special Purpose Motors

Special purpose motors like the linear induction motor or servo motor have different application than the AC motor or the DC motor. The stepper motor has uses including:

  • Plotters
  • Circuit Fabrication
  • Usual Movement Generators
  • Process Control tools

The brushless DC motor has better performance than the brushed DC motors but has less performance in comparison to AC motors. Other specialized motors include the Hysteresis Motor, the Reluctance Motor, and the Universal Motor. Each serves a specific purpose.
