Power Supply/Motor Limit Test


Objective
To investigate and test the maximum load, know as the limit, the motor can lift when using the approved power supply.

Definition and Theory
Electric motors work by using electromagnets. The strength of the motor is based on the amount of electric current that is passed through coils in the armature generating a magnetic field. Please read the following three on-line articles titled, "How Electromagnets Work, "How Electric Motors Work, and Inside an Electric Motor."
