AC induction motors are widely used in commercial and industrial equipment applications around the world because of their performance, flexibility, and reliability. Their huge available power range and ease of control make them a great fit for continuous duty applications where operational life, durability and performance are critical.
AC motors are easy to implement in basic applications as they can run off of line voltage with basic relays and switches along with a start/run capacitor, or a VFD in more complex applications. This simplicity and flexibility, combined with their variable speed capabilities, make AC motors the prime choice for continuous duty applications across most automated equipment markets. Power Electric is a leading developer and supplier of customized, fractional horsepower AC Induction motors and gear motors for market-leading OEMs in North America.
