An AC motor is an electric motor driven by an alternating current (AC). The AC motor commonly consists of two basic parts, an outside stator having coils supplied with alternating current to produce a rotating magnetic field, and an inside rotor attached to the output shaft producing a second rotating magnetic field.
AC motors are used in a variety of machines such as pumps, blowers, conveyors and compressors as well as other industrial purposes as well as in some home appliances.
If you need a new motor the easiest way to find your motor information is on the label itself. It’s best to write down the horsepower (HP), service factor (SF), Volts, Amps, RPMs, Category number and the Model number. We carry Fractional horsepower, T-frame motors, and Metric motors in all sizes. Contact us for more information.
