Kirloskar Electric from its fabled stable of DC Motors have put into international use more than 0.1 million motors since 1969. The wide product range in capacity and variety satisfies the needs of a multitude of applications. The Industrial Laminated Yoke range starting from frame 80 to 1250 with outputs of 0.75 to 3750 kW caters to the industry requirement of torques up to 1500K-Nm. The rugged and reliable higher range of motors are specifically designed for exacting duties in a hot and cold metal rolling mill drive, the sticky rubber mixer drive and continues duty cement kiln drive.These products come from an in house developed technology based on the best of world class international design and manufacturing concepts.
A DC Electric motor is any of a class of electrical machines that converts direct current electrical power into mechanical power. The most common types rely on the forces produced by magnetic fields. Nearly all types of DC motors have some internal mechanism, either electromechanical or electronic, to periodically change the direction of current flow in part of the motor. Most types produce rotary motion; a linear motor directly produces force and motion in a straight line.
DC motors were the first type widely used, since they could be powered from existing direct-current lighting power distribution systems. A DC motor's speed can be controlled over a wide range, using either a variable supply voltage or by changing the strength of current in its field windings. Small DC motors are used in tools, toys, and appliances. The universal motor can operate on direct current but is a lightweight motor used for portable power tools and appliances. Larger DC motors are used in propulsion of electric vehicles, elevator and hoists, or in drives for steel rolling mills. The advent of power electronics has made replacement of DC motors with AC motors possible in many applications.
