An electric motor is a machine that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. For single- and three-phase electric motors, few in the upper Midwest are as knowledgeable or experienced as L&S Electric. Our extensive on-hand inventory includes a wide variety of high-efficiency and vector duty AC and DC motors.
Our knowledgeable staff specializes in careful motor identification and analysis and can recommend a replacement electric motor based on horsepower, rotating speed, frame size, enclosure type, required operating voltages, and duty cycles.
From fractional horsepower and above, these are some of the motors we provide:
Mill and chemical
IEEE 841 extra severe duty
Stainless steel motors
Vector duty motors
Inverter duty motors
Washdown duty / stainless steel
Vertical AC motors
AC motors are manufactured with various enclosures depending on the intended operating environment; we carry open drip-proof (ODP), totally enclosed fan-cooled (TEFC), and explosion-proof (XP) motors.
Sometimes referred to as a squirrel cage, the induction motors represent about 90% of the electric motors used in today’s industrial and consumer applications. Our electric motor experts can identify accurate replacements for both United States (NEMA) standards and International (IEC) standards.
Due to their ability to provide constant torque over wide speed ranges, DC motors are ideal for variable speed applications. We provide a variety of DC motors for applications requiring drop-in replacements and, where applicable, can recommend more efficient AC motor replacements.
Inverter / Vector Duty Motors
Inverter and vector motors are optimized for wide speed ranges and tight speed regulation when used with inverter or vector variable-speed drives.
