Below is this month's "Question of the Month"

BMU Series for Conveyor Application

Q: Currently I run at 2 speeds and on one of them i have the need to manually slow the motor down and then speed it back up. This has been done with a stepper motor controlled through a PC via keyboard commands. I've been reading the manual on this BMU460SA-50A-3 system and it looks like a very promising replacement for my current control system.

If I understand correctly you can have 4 pre set rotation speeds / directions and can also vary the speed both up and down on the fly, correct? Your info states a rated torque of 76 lb-in and a Permissible Load Inertia of 12000 oz-in². If I understand Permissible Load Inertia right, this would be how much of a work load is in the system that the motor is able to overcome to start rotation, correct? I've attempted to look up "oz-in²" to understand better if this value is greater than, or less than the motors rated torque of 76 lb-in. I've not had any luck. Would you be kind enough to clarify?
