Tips for using a torque motor with a gearbox
The torque motor has the characteristics of high starting torque and inclination. The speed control can be realized by changing the power supply voltage.
It is suitable for winding applications. In applications where an object is continuously released at a constant speed and wound at a constant tension. If the diameter of the winding spool is doubled, the torque must be doubled and the speed must be halved.
A torque motor with a gearbox can be used as a brake. By using the speed-torque characteristics of the motor in the braking area, it can act as a brake. In addition, constant tension operation can be realized by applying DC voltage.
