One of the recurring task for a motor company is sizing the motor for the customer’s application. This calculation consist of estimating the load, friction, ascertaining the precision and accuracy and then calculating the correct RMS force/torque and peak force/torque requirement.
Evidently there are many calculations involved especially when there are multiple points in the motion. Working in PBA, I have improved on the motor sizing software quite considerably by allowing for multiple trapezoidal profile, auto calculations without button click, generation of a pdf report, furnishing with extra detail on recommended motor drive and so on.
The software is written in vs.net using C#. It is available for download in http://pbasystems.com.sg download section (require registration).
