Frequently Asked Questions
What is an induction motor?
An induction motor is an AC electric motor in which the electric current in the rotor needed to produce torque is obtained by electromagnetic induction from the magnetic field of the stator winding.
How does an AFCI work?
AFCIs work by sensing when an arc fault is about to occur and then interrupting the flow of electricity before the arc can form. Read more..
What is a rectifier?
A rectifier is an electrical device that converts alternating current (AC), which periodically reverses direction, to direct current (DC), which flows in only one direction. The process is known as rectification. Read more..
What is alternating current?
Alternating current (AC) is an electric current that reverses direction periodically. This means that the voltage of an AC signal also reverses direction periodically.
The frequency of an AC signal is the number of times per second that the current or voltage reverses direction. Read more..
