What is an electric motor?

An electric motor is an electromechanical machine capable of transforming electrical energy into mechanical energy. Electric motors are all reversible: they are capable of producing electric current if turned by mechanical means.

– DC motors include brushless motors used in household appliances, power tools and car starters. Then there are brushless motors, used in computers, drones and electric vehicles.

– AC motors offer single-phase motors, used in homes for household appliances, and three-phase motors, used in industrial applications.

– We also distinguish synchronous motors, used in machines where a constant rotation speed is required, such as in clocks or recorders.

– Asynchronous motors include squirrel-cage motors, commonly used in industrial equipment, and wound-rotor motors, used for machines requiring smooth starting or speed control, such as elevators.

  •             – Last but not least, we have specialized motors, including stepper motors used in printers or hard disks, and servo motors, used for precise motion control (security cameras) and automated control systems.

Electric motors, essential in many contexts, fall into two broad categories : AC electric motors, which include single-phase and three-phase versions, and DC electric motors.

Single-phase electric motors are commonly used in the homes we live in, while three-phase electric motors are more common in factories.

When it comes to DC motors, one common type is the spindle motor. This type is distinguished by its simplicity of construction and low cost. Their major drawback is that they use carbon brushes, or “coals”, to transfer the electric current to the rotating part, and these brushes wear out over time and eventually cause the electric motor to fail.

Brushless DC motors, on the other hand, while eliminating the need for brushes and offering extended service life, are more expensive and require advanced electronics to operate.

We understand the complexity and variety of electric motors, and we’re ready to meet your buy-back needs.
