General-purpose AC motors are electric motors driven by alternating current. Also called induction motors, they use a rotating magnetic field to generate energy. AC motors are efficient, durable, and quiet, making them a good choice for powering pumps, blowers, conveyors, and machine tools. Single-phase AC motors use single-phase power that is typically found in homes. General Purpose motors are for everyday use in normal environments. They may be used in applications that include compressors, pumps, fans, conveyors, material handling, machine tools, and many others.
