A motor that contains two poles, one north, and one south, is known as a two pole motor. This motor is cylindrical in shape. The number of stator windings can provide a reasonable number of poles, ranging from 2 to 12. Motor with more than 12 poles are also available but not in everyday use. Less number of poles means high speed. Therefore the 2 pole motor has a higher speed than the 4 pole motor. The RPM of the 2 pole motor is 3600, and it has a north-south configuration.
