What is a General-Purpose AC Motor
General Purpose AC motors refers to a broad category of every-day-use motors. Very similar to a car’s base model, these motors don’t have all the bells and whistles. You won’t find specialized shafts and bearings, specific mounting equipment, or over current and overload protections. Therefore, general purpose motors can be used for many purposes.
Sometimes referred to as ‘asynchronous’ or ‘induction’ motors, AC motors convert alternating current into mechanical energy (torque). AC stands for alternating current, as the electric current reverses its direction many times in a second. Most motors built for use in Canada run at 60Hz, meaning the direction changes 60 times per second.
