How to interpret DC motor performance curves?DC motor selection must be done by understanding the duty required by the application and comparing this to the dc motor performance of each motor-pump characteristic.There are two main performance graphs, Motor-pump performance and Motor Ratings.Motor-pump performanceThis graph shows two curves for each pump size(eg 3.3,4.2,5.0,5.8 and 6.1cc/rev). These are typical pump sizes for mini hydraulic power packs.The curve going down to the right represents...
