Here's a conversion calculator.
I found this on youtube and can someone verify this if it's correct?
The guy with his nema34 stepper said "it's 12Nm, it can move 1,2kg on 1 meter of lever. i.e. 12kg on 10cm lever... or 120kg on 1cm lever"
I do not know how to calculate these things.
No Geoff that is not what my question is.
My question is:
is it true that if a motor have a rating of 12Nm of torque it can move 1,2kg on 1 meter of lever?
r=1m (distance to centre point of rotation, radius of imaginary circle)
so yes, it's true.
well, actually I'd say that it can "hold" rather than "move" 1.2kg on a lever 1m long. steppers hold. holding torque.
well thank you guys!
If a stepper motor has a holding torque of 12Nm, this is the torque at zero speed, as the motor starts to turn the torque will drop off.
So a 12Nm nema 34 motor will not be able to turn with 12N at 1 meters radious.
It will hold it there but not turn.
100N is 9.81 KG.
