An AC motor is an electric motor which is driven by an alternating current (AC). Single Phase AC motors are typically lightweight, reliable, of simple construction and produce very little noise when running. The typical applications for the single phase motor would be domestic appliances, washing machines, vacuum cleaners, pumps, compressors and some medical apparatus. In fact any application where consistent speed over a wide range of torque is important.
AC motors have a long life potential and are reliable due to the fact they have no common wear parts such as brushes and commutators. This also means they are very low maintenance.
Here at Mawdsleys we provide a comprehensive range of all types of single phase motors, give us a call on 0117 955 2481.
Start/Run capacitors are designed for continuous duty while the motor is powered. An example of use would be in air conditioning units or Jacuzzi pumps.
