rotor turn insulation

Rotor Insulation

Electric generators contain a rotating rotor that induces an electric field into the stator winding to produce electric current. Electrolock’s rotor insulation is used to insulate copper turns in these rotor windings, providing a dielectric barrier between copper bars that carry current. Insulated copper bars are stacked into a metal slot through the length of...
