If a conveyor calculation indicates the application is regenerative (generates power) a brake(s) will be automatically added. If more than one Drive pulley already exists, it will spread the required brake torque equally over all the Drive pulleys. If...
On the Drive Tab line labeled "Inertia", the rotating inertia of all the drive components from the motor to the drive pulley is input. The default values are based on standard copper wound motors directly coupled to the drive pulley through a gear reducer...
All drives include components between the motor and drive pulley. These might include "V" belts, chains and/or gear reducers to decrease the output speed and increase torque. These might also include fluld couplings or other torque limiting devices. Most ...
Since Belt Analyst is a static analysis program, it can only provide an approximate analysis of starting and stopping which are dynamic conditions. As such, many of the calculations for starting are only indications of a possible problem. For instance, th...
