                                                   What is commutator?

Hello there,TT Motor(HK) Industrial Co,Ltd is going to provide you a basic information about commutator.Hope it works for you too.

commutator is the moving part of a rotary electrical switch in certain types of electric motors and electrical generatorsthat 

periodically reverses the curren direction between the rotor and the external circuit. It consists of a cylinder composed of multiple 

metal contact segments on the rotating armature of the machine. The commutator is one component of a motor; there are also two or 

more stationary electrical contacts called "brushes" made of a soft conductor like carbon that press against the commutator, 

making sliding contact with successive segments of the commutator as it rotates. The windings (coils of wire) on the armature are 

connected to the commutator segments.

For more information please feel free to contact with TT  Motor's experts.Highly qualified experts are in huge amount mainly responsible for 

deployment of information.Please kindly take a look at www.ttmotor.com 

Thanks and have a nice day.
