Portescap has released the MotionCompass, a web-based application designed to provide mini motor solutions based on motion requirements for various applications. The input parameters (speed and torque) generate motor recommendations across multiple product technologies. A wealth of self-contained data is available on recommended options, including electrical and mechanical specifications, speed vs. torque curves and performance charts. All data is dynamically generated in real-time and provides the ability to select a solution based on specific application needs. Users can choose product(s), review performance metrics and confirm the optimum solution for the application. A feature of the software is the ability to assign weights to four key performance parameters (speed, efficiency, power and current), which directly impact motor recommendations. The intelligent algorithm, developed based on years of experience and application know-how, recommends a set of ideal motor solutions to maximize application performance. Additional motor parameters, such as diameter, bearing type, efficiency and current requirements, feedback options etc., are available to further narrow down recommended options that meet specific application needs.
