A thorough comprehension of the of the task requirements in a motion application is vital to the successful launching of a product to market. When one element is overlooked it causes delays and added expenses to the design process. How to: Test and Evaluate Motors in Your Application discusses the specifications and processes needed to properly determine the optimal fractional horsepower motor for an application by:
1. Knowing the application inputs, and
2. Testing the application to obtain actual performance requirements
Understanding the application requirements from the start avoids wasted time, added expense, and makes for a smoother design process.
