Electric motors are the unsung heroes of the modern world. Without them our convenient, safe, healthy lifestyles would not be possible and we’d be back in the 19th century using fires to keep warm in the winter, waiting for the rare cool breeze during the summer, washing our clothes by hand, opening our garage doors manually, putting up with flooded basements and riding about in a horse and carriage. So it’s no exaggeration to state that, while high tech gets all the glamorous press, it’s electric motors that make the world as we know it go round. If you need electric motors in Toronto LN Electric is the place to get them.

Do I Need an AC or DC Electric Motor?
While high power applications are typically AC low power applications can be either AC or DC although most are typically DC. So what is the difference?
- AC Motors – The most common type of AC motor is called the “fractional horsepower” motor. This is typically a ¼ to ½ horsepower motor. AC motors substantially more powerful than this do exist of course but they are commonly found in factories and other commercial settings. An AC motor will typically slow down as load is applied, but this is normal. Although if the motor is too heavily burdened it will stall; a situation that should be avoided whenever possible.
- DC Motors – A direct current, or DC, motor is the simplest type of electric motor. In its most basic form it requires only 2 magnets with opposing polarity and an electric coil to produce electric power, with torque provided by the opposing electromagnetic forces. The DC motor is typically powered by batteries, an available DC power supply or by use of any AC to DC converter. DC motors can be found in garage door openers, car windows, some appliances and things like remote control toys.
