*The 2012 KoP lists motor part numbers

AM802-001A

am-9012

am-9014

I was assuming these were AndyMark part numbers, but when I searched the AndyMark web site, these part numbers were not recognized (see attachments).

What up?

I think am-9012 and 9014 should be am-0912 and 0914

The am-0255 page references AM802-001A

Thanks Joe.

I’m updating my motor calculator for the 2012 KoP motors.

*The AndyMark web site lists the following specs for the PG71 (am-0914) motor:

84 rpm & 1.3 amps @ 12V no load

6.8 ft-lbf & 11.3 amps @ 11.6V stall

Extrapolating the stall from 11.6V to 12V would give:

6.8*(12/11.6) ft-lbf & 11.3*(12/11.6) amps @ 12V stall

Assuming max power occurs at half speed and half torque would give:

half speed = 84/2 = 42 rpm

half torque = 6.8*(12/11.6)/2 = 3.52 ft-lbf = 675.3 oz-in

max watts = (42 rmp)*(675.3 oz-in)/1352.3 = 21 watts

The web site says max power is **130** watts (see attachment).

Somebody please check my math?

I think your math is correct.

Peak mechanical power (at half of free speed and half of stall torque) is about 21W.

Electrical power would be about 70W under those conditions.

I don’t have access to my team’s motors right now, but after the Monday meeting I will take them to the lab, and try report dynamometer test results on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Edit: It appears that this gearmotor is aimed at replacing the old-favorite Globe transfer case gearmotor, which had more than twice the stall torque and about the same free-speed. That motor could develop about 80W peak mechanical power, if I recall correctly.

fantastic. thanks.

3.52 lbf-ft * 1.356 N-m/lbf-ft = 4.77 N-m

42 rpm * 0.10472 (rad/s)/rpm = 4.4 rad/s

4.77 * 4.4 = 21-ish.

Your math checks, so I’d guess there’s a problem with the specs somewhere. Probably the listed max power. The input power at half torque is about 73W. So at max power it’s either 30% efficient, or 178% efficient. I know which side I’m putting my dollar on…

This has the maximum power as 18.28 W.

On that chart, the AndyMark part number is listed incorrectly.

It should be “am-0914” not “am-9014”.

Also, if you go to the AM website for am-0914, you will see that the specs listed there differ greatly from the FRC chart.

Does anyone know if the AndyMark PG-71 gearmotor (am-0914) can take a side load?

The Globe gearmotor of similar design could not.

Hey, can a Globe motor be used this year? Also, does anyone know where I can get a spec sheet on it? Thanks
