AC Motors are rugged and built for demanding applications. Extremely quiet and reliable operation makes AC motors a good choice for relatively low speed applications and those where consistent speed over a wide range of torque is important. AC induction motors have no common wear parts such as brushes and commutators, so they are highly reliable, with long life potential and low maintenance.
Characteristics of AC Motors:
Relatively fixed speed operation, 3400 RPM maximum
AC motors are constructed with class "H" insulation components allowing for running temperatures up to 180° C
Low (single phase) to medium (three phase) starting torque
Standard life of 20,000+ hours
Totally enclosed construction is typical
Class F insulation standards, withstands higher temperatures in intermittent applications
Maintains speed over a wide range of torque
No control required
