eMotors Direct’s stock of general purpose electric motors are for use in various applications across numerous industries. 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.
Our general purpose motor category covers many types of electric motors like single-phase and three-phase general purpose AC motor, for example. Choose a motor with a frame made from materials like cast iron, rolled steel, aluminum, and stainless steel. Find horsepower abilities from fractional up to 600.
