Yeah, this motor seems less powerful than the typical 6355 or 6374’s everyone uses for esk8, so i thought it’d give it a try.
Weird how a small 6455 motor is ~4-5 times more powerful (watts) than this large heavy thing. Any ideas on why that is the case? (Such as the rated power on esk8 motors are ‘theoretical max power’ for 0.1 seconds before it melts)
In the spec sheet it shows “back EMF” in volts/1000 rpm. I just reversed that to get rpm/volt.
Regarding the power rating question, it’s a matter of how it’s rated. Those motors are designed for industrial-type workloads, which means continuous duty for hours. Our motors are rated for peak loads, probably 1 to 10 minutes at most, and that’s with plenty of airflow for cooling.
