AC motors are used in a variety of home appliance and industrial applications because of their cost-effectiveness, high efficiency and great durability.
Since AC motors utilize a rotating magnetic field that requires no brushes, they have fewer parts to break down and cause costly delays in operation.
Some of the applications that commonly use AC motors include washing machines and other home appliances, pumps, blowers, conveyors, compressors and almost any industrial equipment.
