I am working on a project where we want to run at a large range of speeds.
.03ft/min to 600ft/min. The motor I have runs a 12.5" dia drive drum.
Right now I am able to run the 600ft/min at 62Hz but the low range is where I am running into problems. I am using a 1000:1 vector motor and allen bradley 755 drive. In order to run the .03ft/min with my 10:1 gear reduction I need a output frequency of .003Hz. Is this even possible with a drive?
Has anyone ever run this large of range without secondary gearing?
Here are my motor specs.
What does slip-hertz mean? Does this mean the motor will slip under 1.5Hz? This is below the 1000:1 ratio. Should I not get full torque at .06Hz?
