Permissible inertia for Brother gearmotors

Post by om_tech_support_SZ » Mon Jan 23, 2017 6:16 pm

Q: I am considering using a Brother motor(G3F40N10-MV9AWN) to rotate a 5-kg drum mounted vertically. The drum has a diameter of 1000mm. The speed and torque characteristics of the motor meets my application needs just fine. I am unsure if the load inertia would exceed the specifications. How do I find the permissible inertia for Brother gearmotors?

A: The permissible rotor inertia for our Brother gearmotors is shown below under Allowable Inertia moment (IA) for motors with different output power (kW):

The output power ratings can be converted as below:

1HP=0.7457 kW

The permissible inertia for the motor with gearheads can be calculated as below:

When selecting an AC motor, the load inertia should be calculated and the selected motor’s permissible inertia should exceed the load inertia for instant start/stop operations. If the load inertia exceeds the permissible inertia, the acceleration/deceleration time for the motor should be calculated accordingly to prevent the motor from stalling.

Calculation example:

The permissible inertia for G3F40N10-MV9AWN exceeds the load inertia of the drum application, which means instant start/stop is allowed for the motor.
