Commutator introduction

On the outside, a commutator is a multitude of copper elements insulated (spaced) among eachother and reinforced with insulation compound. Each individual copper element is a bar joined on one end via connection in form of hook or groove with the end of the armature winding coil. Electric current is transferred to commutator through two slip carbon contacts – brushes exerting pressure onto the commutator surface (brush track) by force of a spring.

Commutators are used in electromotors intended for a wide range of applications.
