Motor characteristics window

This section contains motor information:

  • Manufacturer - motor manufacturer.
  • Part number - catalog number.
  • Motor type - motor type (stepper, DC or BLDC)
  • Poles - number of pole pairs for DC or BLDC motors, steps per revolution for stepper motors.
  • Phases - BLDC motor phases.
  • Nominal voltage - nominal winding voltage.
  • Nominal current - maximum continuous winding current for DC or BLDC motors, nominal current for stepper motors.
  • Nominal speed - nominal speed.
  • Nominal torque - nominal torque.
  • Nominal power - nominal power consumption.
  • Winding resistance - active resistance of the winding.
  • Winding inductance - inductance of the winding.
  • Rotor inertia - rotor inertia.
  • Stall torque - zero speed torque.
  • Detent torque - hold torque with unpowered windings.
  • Torque constant - torque constant.
  • Speed constant - speed constant.
  • Speed/torque gradient - speed/torque constant.
  • Mechanical time constant - motor time constant.
  • Max speed - maximum allowed speed.
  • Max current - maximum allowed winding current.
  • Max current time - maximum safe time of max current in the winding.
  • No load current - no-load current consumption.
  • No load speed - no-load motor speed.
