Transit Coils - Electric Coils for Traction Motors

A traction motor is a DC electric motor providing the primary rotational torque of a machine or locomotive, usually for conversion of energy into linear motion (traction). The traction motors on DC electric and diesel electric transit and locomotives consists of two parts, a rotating armature and a fixed field. The fixed field consists of tightly wound coils of wire fitted inside the motor case. The armature is another set of coils wound round a central shaft. It is connected to the field through "brushes" which are spring loaded contacts pressing against an extension of the armature called the commutator.
