Max load in lbs

Postby cizzi » Wed Oct 26, 2011 4:15 pm

This product below:

3253 - 36JX30K14G/3685-1230 14:1 Planetary Gearbox DC Motor

If I were to have 2 of those motors attached to wheels, what would the max payload in lbs or kg be? And how much more weight would the dc motors you sell with higher torque allow ?

And another question, the shaft is 8mm, I looked around the net for tires and its hard to find tires that take a 8mm shaft, you would have to either shave the shaft on the motor or make your tire hole bigger or buy an adapter? Or am I missing something?

Regards

Well, that motor is listed as being rated for 0.5 Nm of torque (0.37 ft-lbs). So the max weight can be calculated from that, you just need to keep in mind the design of your system (mainly where the wheels are placed).

You can get some shaft couplers that will allow you to attach shafts of different sizes together.

To make it clear for others there's a tool I found:

http://www.societyofrobots.com/RMF_calculator.shtml

and

http://www.robotshop.com/dc-motor-selection.html

Will both let you calculate the right size motor to choose based on your payload.
