Dialog: Servo and Gearbox Sizing

Kinetostatic Motor Torque and Speed dialog-box

Note: The options for a Linear Motor with a Slide-Joint will become available in a later release.


Use this dialog-box to:

select a Servomotor from the major servo manufacturers

select a Planetary Gearbox from the major gearbox manufactures

plot the Servomotor Torque and Speed curve; find the Maximum and RMS Torque values

plot the Load Torque-Speed curve in four quadrants

plot the Motor Torque and Speed in four quadrants; find the Maximum and RMS Torque values

find the Servomotor Duty Cycle as a percentage of the machine-cycle

upload your own database of Servomotors and Gearboxes.
