The term horsepower was first termed centuries ago but continues to be used to describe power in many types of equipment today, and the term can equate to different amounts of power based on the type of equipment it is describing. For electric motors and other electrical power applications, one horsepower is defined as 746 Watts, so a two horsepower electric motor is capable of providing up to 1492 Watts of power.

Two HP electric motors come in a huge range of configurations, sizes, and designs, so it is important to consider the electrical, mechanical, and performance requirements of the application at hand. Two HP motors have many different, customizable electrical characteristics, which include the motor's base speed, its standard voltage, the type of drive current, the type of insulation, and duty cycle.

One of the biggest electrical characteristics to consider is the type of driving current. This is split between direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC). Due to the constant flow of DC, DC motors are usually used in applications that require precise and stable operation or control. AC motors, on the other hand, can provide greater power and are safer to operate.

Mechanical requirements should also be considered, such as how the motor will be mounted, what type of enclosure the motor will use, and what type of drive shaft, bearings, and grease the motor will use. Lastly, based on application performance requirements, the motor's torque speed range, constant horsepower speed range, and temperature rise should also be taken into consideration.

Two HP electric motors work well in power tools and machines of varying duties. These include: air compressors, conveyors, aeration fans, yoke/pedestal fans and blowers and coolers. Two HP electric motors may also serve as the following specific motors: AC VS master, three phase open or enclosed, single phase enclosed, synchronous permanent magnet IEEE 841, shaft grounding, drill rig duty explosion-proof, general purpose, general purpose explosion-proof, stainless steel, white washdown, paint free, brake, premium efficiency farm duty, jet pump, HVAC and many more. Two HP electric motors also lend a hand in general unit handling and severe duty applications.
