Welcome to Electric Motor Wizard.
An electric motor is a mechanism that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. Electric Motors are very important to modern life as alot of modern household items revolve around the use of an electric motor. A Compact Disc player requires a motor to spin the disc, your hard disk drive in your computer requires motors to spin the disks in it.
There are many different kinds of motors. Perhaps the most common is the DC Motor which is widely used across the board but there are other kinds and their use varies upon application.
- DC Motors
- AC Motors
- Stepper Motors
- Reluctance Motors
- Universal Motors
Motors also come in a wide variety of different sizes, from micro motors that spin very small fans in a laptop to heavy duty motors which are used in huge mining drills.
