Can someone tell me how I choose an electric motor, please? Answered
I've been away for a while, partly because my pc would not let me post to Instructables, and partly through illness. I will get to my projects very shortly and complete them.
I need to buy an electric motor for a friends current project, but I don't know how to choose one wisely.
Essentially it is a Ferris Wheel for Teddies, yes, really! We indulge our kids!
We have worked out the frame weighs about 6 kilos and the contents will weigh about 30 kilos.
The wheel will not spin at the centre, but at the edge, like a real Ferris wheel.
So I think I will need a slow motor with high torque. Each revoloution should take about one hour
(some of the kids are disabled and physically slow, plus if it goes slow enough they'll fall asleep through boredom! Only kidding! I really do need this slow)
Additionally it would be great if the motor could be low voltage.
So any tips on how I would achieve this, please?
