I've got a pretty simple question about DC gear motors. I understand the relationship between torque, motor speed and Hp. Typically when I see a spec for a motor it list all three values. Are the torque and speed both attainable at the same time or are those the peak values? Because when I try to calculate the Hp from the listed torque and speed, I never the Hp listed.
If I wanted a dc motor to have a torque of 2 ft-lb and a speed of 60 rpm, then the motor would have to be able to put out 0.023 Hp. Correct?
But as the speed is reduced, the motor can supply much more torque and like wise as the speed in increased, the motor cannot supply as much torque.
Is my understanding correct?
