  • DC


    Permanent Magnet Direct Current or DC brush type motors are a great option for applications with high starting torque requirements because of their linear speed-torque curve. DC motors with brushes work well in applications with easily accessible motors and operations that don’t require a long life. DC motors have a standard brush life of 2000+ hours. Because speed and voltage are linearly related, speed control of DC motors is simple.

  • AC


    For applications needing relatively low, consistent speed over a wide range of torque, alternating current or AC induction motors are a great choice. Groschopp offers two and four pole AC motors with single and three phase inputs making it easy to find the right fit. AC motors are a great option for low power and low starting torque applications where speed control isn’t important. The lack of common wear parts, such as brushes and commutators, make AC motors extremely reliable, resulting in long life (20,000+ hours) with little maintenance.

  • Brushless


    Permanent Magnet Brushless DC motors (or Brushless motors) combine the life-extending (20,000+ hours) and easy-to-maintain configurations of AC induction motors with and high starting torque and good speed regulation of DC brush type motors. This “best of both” motor allows for superior efficiency and power density at a very quiet noise level. Because Brushless DC motors use rare earth magnets as opposed to the ceramic magnets of DC brush type motors, they have a higher power density and require a control to operate.

  • Universal


    Universal motors are great for shorter life applications needing extremely high speeds (20,000+ RPMs), high starting torque and high power density. They have a higher power density than other motor types because the open design and fan allow heat to dissipate better. Universal motors are unique in that they can operate on either AC or DC power. They are the least expensive type of motor, making them an excellent option for intermittent duty applications that allow for higher noise levels, maintenance requirements and a shorter life. Groschopp’s Universal motors are always custom built to fit individual circumstances and environments.

WK and NR part numbers: What do they mean?

We want to start by clarifying motors with WK and NR part numbers are not our product. If you saw “Groschopp” on the label and came to us hoping for a replacement, don’t worry, it happens more than you think. Motors with WK and NR part numbers are built by Groschopp & Co., GmbH, a German […]

NEMA Ratings

NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association) was found in 1926 and is located in Rosslyn Virginia. NEMA ratings create standards which define a product’s level of protection against various environmental conditions. It is often used in the manufacturing industry and to test electrical devices. NEMA has over 13 different types of ratings ranging from NEMA 1 to […]

How to use the Motor Search Tool

Narrow your search by selecting motor type, gearbox, voltage, and phase options for your desired motor.

Select a dominant variable: choose one of the three parameters to narrow your search. The selected variable determines which slider bar you will be able to manually move.

Use the slider corresponding to your dominant variable to further narrow your motor selection. The other sliders will automatically move to show available ranges based on the range of your selected variable.

Results will upload as your search criteria changes. If you have any questions regarding your results or how to use the search tool, you can chat with us using the green tab on the left-hand side of your screen.

Note: Groschopp Universal motors are custom built to fit your application so no additional options are available to narrow the search. Selecting the Universal motor type will prompt a message taking you to the Universal product page.
