AC Power Controllers (AC Motors)
AC Power Controllers
Integral Systems manufactures 1 phase and 3 phase ac power controller (AC Motor) suitable for controlling the power to heaters, furnaces and transformers.
What is and AC Motor?
The standard definition for an AC Motor is an electric motor that is driven by alternating current. The AC Motor is used in the conversion of electrical energy into mechanical energy. This mechanical energy is made from utilizing the force that is exerted by the rotating magnetic fields produced by the alternating current that flows through its coils. The AC Motor is made up of two major components: the stationary stator that is on the outside and has coils supplied with AC current, and the inside rotor that is attached to the output shaft. – See more at: http://www.anaheimautomation.com/manuals/forms/ac-motor-guide.php#sthash.Ouqy8GN5.dpuf
How does an AC Motor work?
The fundamental operation of an AC Motor relies on the principles of magnetism. The simple AC Motor contains a coil of wire and two fixed magnets surrounding a shaft. When an electric (AC) charge is applied to the coil of wire, it becomes an electromagnet, generating a magnetic field. Simply described, when the magnets interact, the shaft and the coil of wires begin to rotate, operating the motor.
