How much torque does a VEX motor have?
Ships with a standard [200 RPM, 18:1] gear cartridge. Gear Options.
|V5 Smart Motor Specifications||2-Wire Motor 393 + Motor Controller 29|
|Peak Power||11 W||3.93 W|
|Continuous Power||11 W||2.70 W|
|Stall Torque (with 100 RPM cartridge)||2.1 Nm||1.67 Nm|
|Low Battery Performance||100% Power Output||51% Power Output|
How much weight can a motor lift?
The maximum torque is given as 1.2 kg*cm (which includes the gearbox-transition), which means having wheels with an radius of 1 cm (or 2cm in diameter) will give you a force that is equivalent to 1.2 kg in weight at nominal voltage, as long as your electronics can provide a current of 300 mA (load current).
How do you test a VEX motor?
VEX Testing Methods
- A motor is spun at free speed.
- A brake is slowly applied (linearly increasing in torque over time), bringing the motor down to a predetermined RPM.
- The brake is slowly released and the motor is allowed to return to its free speed.
What does a VEX motor do?
The 2-Wire Motor 393 is the primary actuator used in the VEX EDR. Build rotational mechanisms, drive bases, rotational joints, conveyor belts – anything that spins can be built using the 2-wire Motor 393.
What does a VEX clutch do?
These clutch modules are designed to protect the gears internal to the motor from “shock-loads”. The motor, even in a stall situation, CANNOT exert enough force to break the internal gears.
What is gear ratio in vex?
VEX Plastic Gears, Sprockets, and Pulleys may also be used for power transfer. In this case, the input and output Gears/Sprockets/Pulleys will be the same size so there is no change to the torque or the rotational speed. This is often called an 1:1 ratio.
How much weight can a 1000KV motor lift?
Every motor has a different capacity. And this, 1000KV motor has the capacity to lift around 900 grams.
How much weight can a 1/2 hp motor lift?
A 1/2 horsepower garage door opener can lift approximately 300 pounds, which is the average weight of a two-car steel door. A one-horsepower opener can easily lift approximately 400 pounds. The greater the horsepower, the faster the opener can lift the door, although some are designed to lift faster than others.
How do you know how much weight a motor can lift?
Force equals the weight of the object acting at the centre of the shaft. For eg: Assume that a Motor shaft is holding a tire of weight 50kg. So the weight acting at the centre of the shaft of motor is Force(F2) = 50*9.81 N.
What does a VEX shaft encoder do?
The Optical Shaft encoder is used to measure both relative position of and rotational distance traveled by a shaft. It works by shining light onto the edge of a disk outfitted with evenly spaced slits around the circumference.
What is Vex V5?
VEX V5 represents our fifth generation of education robotics systems developed with 20 years of experience using robotics to teach STEM principles. VEX allows students to hone critical computational thinking skills needed to succeed in both the 21st century’s workforce and in everyday life.
What is a potentiometer vex?
A potentiometer (or “pot”) is an electrical device used to measure angular position. This varying voltage can be measured by the VEX microcontroller and is directly proportional to the angular position of the shaft connected to the center of the potentiometer.
Which type of gears does the VEX Robotics kit contain?
This kit contains four sizes of VEX Spur Gears (12-, 36-, 60-, and 84-tooth gears). The 60- and 84-tooth gears have extra mounting holes for attaching metal bars or parts to these gears when using them as part of a turntable system or similar design. Create robot transmissions, gearboxes, and gear reductions.
Are vex v5 Motors brushless?
Our solution to this problem is the v5 cooling fan. The fan motor is a standard brushless motor, that can either come with or without the fan, and is attached to the unit through 2 crossbeams stretching from either side of the top of the unit.
What is motor free speed?
The free speed RPM of a motor is relevant only as a reference measurement based on the amount of power being supplied to the motor. In general terms, the faster a motor runs at free speed the less torque or output power it will produce. These either limit the speed or power being produced.
