Besides load torque, acceleration torque, speed, and load inertia, overlooking certain sizing parameters during the motor sizing process can literally make or break your machine.
Welcome to Oriental Motor's "Engineering Notes" Blog:
Products and technology are only valuable when coupled with skilled people and services to support them. Since 1978, ORIENTAL MOTOR U.S.A. CORP. has been building a service and support system to better serve customers. It is our goal to provide the best product and service from the design phase, through the sale and beyond.
Our blog will feature:
- Introduction to new products and technologies
- Motion control basics and application examples
- Tips for motor selection, programming, and troubleshooting
The BLH Series compact BLDC motors and drivers have been around for a long time, and there is a good reason. Customers seem to favor the combination of a highly efficient, compact motor and a light weight board type driver that is easy to use. Having a high torque, flat style hollow shaft gearhead as an option also helps in increasing torque as well as minimizing footprint.
For applications where torque needs to be limited, an external mechanical torque limiter is typically required in addition to the motor system. When the torque exceeds the limit, the torque limiter will either decouple the load or limit the torque by slipping. An electric motor system's built-in torque limit function can simplify machine designs by eliminating this extra component.
