Motor Type Selection


Parameters that define a motor type are the mechanical output power, the shaft bearing system, the commutation system used, and the possible combinations with gearheads and sensors. The most important criteria include the speed and torque requirements, and the commutation system. 
 
Some of the formulas used in this article use subscripts that need to be explained. The variables on the motor shaft (output) are identified with the subscripts Mot. For example, nMot stands for the required motor speed. Parameters that describe the characteristics of the motor have no special additional subscript. For example, no stands for the no-load speed of the motor.
