Choosing the best motor or gearbox selection to fit your application can be an overwhelming experience for those less familiar with fractional horsepower electric motors. This page will provide you with a quick way to compare motor types.
Speed vs. Torque: Compare Motor Types
As you can see, Universal motors can run at extremely high speeds but only at very low torque levels. AC motors hold a fairly consistent speed over a range of torque. DC and Brushless motors have similar curves—low speed and high torque—but Brushless motors dramatically exceed the torque levels of all other motor options at similar frame sizes.
