About the 8M

rotating electric motor 8m

There are eight traction motors fitted to the EMU. The traction motors are identical in construction and operation. The 8M traction motor has 2 main field , namely the automatic variable field coil and the series wound coils. The commutator field is in series with the armature. The turning force of the motor is fed via the pinion gear and axle gear that reduces the turning speed to the wheel that provide traction for the EMU. The motor is colled by means of forced ventilation from the blower through the air duct.
