Whitepaper – Efficiency in Fractional HP Motors & Gearmotors
June 5, 2013
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.
Explore these topics
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.
How to use the Motor Search Tool
Narrow your search by selecting motor type, gearbox, voltage, and phase options for your desired motor.
Yellow represents selected option.
Dark gray represents available options.
Light gray represents options not available with previously selected criteria.
Select a dominant variable: choose one of the three parameters to narrow your search. The selected variable determines which slider bar you will be able to manually move.
Use the slider corresponding to your dominant variable to further narrow your motor selection. The other sliders will automatically move to show available ranges based on the range of your selected variable.
Results will upload as your search criteria changes. If you have any questions regarding your results or how to use the search tool, you can chat with us using the green tab on the left-hand side of your screen.
Note: Groschopp Universal motors are custom built to fit your application so no additional options are available to narrow the search. Selecting the Universal motor type will prompt a message taking you to the Universal product page.
