An electric motor is an electrical machine that converts electricity into mechanical energy. Many electrical motors operate through the conversation between your motor’s magnetic field and electric current in a wire winding to create force in the type of rotation of a shaft.

Electric motors are found in a broad range of industrial, commercial, and residential, applications, such as fans, pumps, compressors, elevators, and refrigerators. They are also the central parts in motor vehicles, heating ventilating and cooling (HVAC) equipment, and kitchen appliances.
