### Other requirement(s)

It is necessary to hold the load even after the power supply is turned off.
→ You need an electromagnetic brake.

It is necessary to hold the load after the motor is stopped, but not necessary to hold after the power supply is turned off.

### Operating conditions

 Fixed speed operation Operating speed V1 = in mm /s Acceleration/Deceleration t1 = s
 Variable speed operation Operating speed V1 = in mm /s 〜 V2 = in mm /s Acceleration/Deceleration t1 = s
 Positioning operation (Fill in the fields, if any) Rotor inertia JO = oz·in kg·m 2 Gear ratio i = If the rotor inertia and the gear ratio are unknown, the acceleration torque will be calculated with an inertia ratio of 5:1 (see the motor selection tips that will appear on the result window for the detail). Positioning distance L = in mm Positioning time t0 = s Stopping time ts = s If a specific acceleration / deceleration time is required t1 = s If a specific operating speed is required V = in mm /s If Positioning distance is given and acceleration/deceleration is unknown, it is calculated as one fourth of Positioning time.
