DC (direct current) motor commutator end cap. DC motors, or generators, produce electricity by converting mechanical energy to direct electrical power based on Faraday's law of electromagnetic induction. According to this law, when a conductor moves in a magnetic field it cuts through lines of magnetic flux, which induces an electromotive force in the conductor. The commutator passes current to the rotor.
