Marathon Single Phase Motors

Since 1913, Marathon Motor's name has been recognized for engineering excellence, custom-designed products and an extensive product line of industrial quality motors.

Single-phase refers to the distribution of alternating current electric power with only two active conductors. Single-phase distribution is used when loads are mostly lighting and heating, with few large electric motors. A single-phase supply connected to an alternating current electric motor does not produce a revolving magnetic field; single-phase motors need additional circuits for starting, and such motors are uncommon above 10 Hp/7Kw.
