What is the role of the split ring in an electric motor?

Answer :

The split ring is also called commutator. In an electric motor the role of split rings is to reverse the direction of current flowing through the motor coil after every half rotation of the coil. Due to this reversing of current, the direction of force remains unchanged on the two sides of the coil and hence the coil continues to rotate in the same direction.
