Provide Additional Power With a General Purpose Industrial Motor
General purpose motors can be used for a wide range of purposes. Whether you need to power a compressor, agricultural equipment, or industrial tools, an all-purpose motor will suit your needs. You can find a variety of quality products and brands on eBay.What is an industrial motor?
Industrial motors are often referred to as electromechanical models. This means that they use electricity to create mechanical energy. New and used industrial electric motors can be single- or three-phase models.
- Single-phase: Single-phase types have two different variations: permanent capacitor and capacitor start. Single phase motors are suitable for power tools, pumps and as small vehicle engines.
- Three-phase: Three-phase motors are intended to satisfy the needs of extended, industrial use.
Each of these motors can be purchased in new or second-hand condition from eBay.What are the main types of industrial motors?
There are two major types of industrial electric motors: AC and DC motors. In addition, industrial electric motors are divided into six other motor types, including:
- AC squirrel cage
- Brush DC
- Brushless DC
- Wound roto type
AC motors are able to use a Variable Speed Drive (VSD). This is a feature that allows the user to control the speed of the motor. VSD is helpful in industrial settings that require efficient energy use or frequent changes, such as in an assembly line. A wide variety of AC motors are available for purchase online through eBay. By purchasing an AC model, you can take advantage of the following:
- Controllable starting current
- Adjustable maximum torque
- Low starting power requirements
- Minimal disturbances in the power line
- Controllable acceleration
An electric DC motor is the ideal choice for applications involving a rotating motion. DC motors are able to maintain an angular rotation in a continuous manner. These motors are also easy to control in terms of speed. There are two important parts to a DC motor. The rotor is the gyrating component and the stator is the outer part that remains motionless as the rotor spins. Quality DC motors will also contain a shaft, which is used to output mechanical energy. When shopping for an industrial DC motor on eBay, be aware of the three main types:
- Servo motor
- Brushless motor
- Brushed motor
