Motors are the power transmission workhorse of industry, converting electrical energy into mechanical movement. Selecting an AC motor or DC motor for an application depends on considerations such as power, speed control, cost and ease of maintenance.
Electric motors are the workhorses of industry, responsible for much of the movement and rotation that needs to be done. Modern electric motors are extremely efficient and reliable. Electric motors are available in both AC- and DC-powered designs.
AC motors are widely used to power pumps, blowers, conveyors and other industrial machinery. A large selection of general-purpose and application-specific AC motors fit a wide range of installation operation requirements.
AC motor accessories help complete installation.
STABLE™ Motor bases - are mounting slide bases for use with 56 to 449T NEMA motors.
DC motors are designed for use with unfiltered SCR (Thyristor) type and PWM (pulse width modulated) type DC adjustable speed drives, and on across-the-line DC controls.
DC motors are perfect for conveyors, turntables, anywhere adjustable speed and constant torque are required, or when dynamic braking and/or reversing are needed.
Ironhorse DC motors up to 2hp offer simple 2-lead connection.
DC gearmotors provide high torque at low speeds, and are designed for use on unfiltered SCR (Thyristor) rectified AC input. They may also be used with PWM (pulse width modulated) DC variable speed drives or across-the-line applications.
Ironhorse DC gearmotors up to 1/5hp are available in a variety of operating voltages, with parallel or right-angle output shafts.
