DC Motor

DC Motor.

Description

The D.C. Motor model consists of four electromagnets; the two fixed to the frame representing the field windings and the two free to rotate about the central axis representing the armature windings. 12 Volts D.C. will produce rapid rotation of the armature. It may be necessary to adjust the commutator with respect to the brushes.
