Whether you are a house owner who's handy at fixing things around our home or an experienced technician who works with various types of machinery, eventually you will work with industrial motors. You can find them with various horsepower, speeds, voltage, frames, enclosures, and mountings depending on their various uses. Two of the most common engine types are AC and DC, referring to engines that utilize alternating current and direct current, respectively.

Inexpensive: AC industrial motors are the most economical engines available if you need more than 325 watts of power, mainly as a result of their simple design. You can find them in air conditioner, washers and dryers, fans, blowers, vacuum cleaners, and many other products. Because they are so widely used, you won't have any trouble finding a replacement when needed.

An Understandable and Cost-Efficient Design: A permanent electromagnetic field is created in the stator, or stationary section, of the motor by either permanent magnets, which are common in fractional horsepower applications, or electromagnetic windings, which are used in applications that need five or more horsepower.

Speed Control: With this type of machine, controlling the speed is simple. The higher the armature voltage, the faster the rotation, meanings a faster speed. The voltage will increase along with the horsepower. Most DC industrial motors will perform well over a speed variety of 20:1, down to approximately 5 % to 7 % of the base speed. They are designed with variable speed operation in mind, so they have heat control features that allow lower operating speeds.

Load Control: The load, or torque, control is simple. The output torque is proportional to the current, so if you limit the current, you limit the torque it can take. This is one reason why these DC engines are used for applications such as textile manufacturing.

The Honda Civic was the Little Compact Car Darling of the 70s and 80s until competition started to ramp up in the form of Toyota's, Mazda's and a wide variety of Hyundai's and Fords !! The Civic first came on the scene in 1973. It was economical, rated high for safety and attracted a a great deal of frugally minded consumers. Competition isn't always bad; it kept Honda refining and resculpting the Civic over all these years.
