Help with torque caculations
April 13, 2012
I need some help with figuring out the maximum payload for a robot I’m designing.
Both of the data sheets for these robots provide the gear ratio and stalling torque for each motor is it possible using these values to calculate the maximum payload I could use on these platforms?
Rover 5 has a stalling torque of 10Kg/cm and a gear ratio of 86.8:1
Wild thumper has a stalling torque of 4Kg/cm and a gear ratio of 35:1 (or at least the version I’m looking at does)
