Whitepaper – Efficiency in Fractional HP Motors & Gearmotors
Efficiency is often one of the last factors that design engineers think about when specifying for an OEM application, yet it is critical to a successful, optimized design in many ways. “Efficiency in Fractional HP Motors & Gearmotors” provides overview of efficiency as it relates to other design considerations such as power source, operating cost, temperature, purchase cost and size.

- Application Considerations – Using application design checklists to gather efficiency-related application information and understanding what it means.
- Component Comparisons – explore the efficiencies and operating characteristics of various motors, speed reducers/gearboxes, and controls. Huge penalties results from over-sizing or under-sizing motion components.
- System Efficiency – how do you effectively and efficiently match the components to achieve both performance points and energy efficiency for the overall system? Are some combinations better, or worse, than others?
- Cost Impact – learn how to apply formulas and computations to evaluate system cost and operating cost, while still meeting application design requirements.
