AC induction motors

Reliable power from AC single phase or three phase network.

High reliability, maintenance-free motors

Induction motors are perfect for applications powered from an AC fixed frequency network (400 Hz). They are controlled from a simple contactor and no electrical drive is needed. This makes them very reliable compared to a DC brushless motor and its associated drive.

A separate drive may be used for variable frequency networks when load characteristics and system needs require some speed variation during use.

Features and benefits

  • High reliability

No wear (except bearings). Reduced number of components because there is no ON/OFF switching

  • Excellent for constant torque applications 

Design works well when the torque is a monotonously growing function of speed

  • Robust design



Used on commercial or military, fixed wing or rotary wing aircraft for

  • Electromechanical actuators
  • Fans
  • Hydraulic and fuel pumps
