# MotorsHow many motors do you have in total for this mechanism (assuming they're identical, and geared together) | ||
---|---|---|

EfficiencyEfficiency of the transmission | ||

Motor | ||

Free SpeedThe maximum RPM of the motor | [RPM] | |

Stall TorqueThe maximum torque of the motor, occurring at 0 RPM | ||

Free CurrentThe current drawn when the motor is unloaded | [A] | |

Stall CurrentThe current drawn at 0 RPM / Max Torque | [A] |

Overall Gear RatioGear ratio of both gearbox before rocker and in pod | |||||
---|---|---|---|---|---|

Pre-Pod Gear RatioThe gear ratio before the rocker pod. Larger than 1 is a reduction, smaller is a RPM increase. Empty cells are assumed to be 1. You can either blank out all the cells, and plug in a number in the top right one, or build a ratio by typing in the number of teeth on each gear (or belts/sprockets) starting from the motor. | Pod Gear RatioThe gear ratio in the rocker pod. Negative ratios are ratios where the direction is not reversed between input and output. Larger than 1 is a reduction, smaller is a RPM increase. Empty cells are assumed to be 1. You can either blank out all the cells, and plug in a number in the top right one, or build a ratio by typing in the number of teeth on each gear (or belts/sprockets) starting from the motor. | ||||

Clutch TorqueThe torque of the clutch/brake on the rocker pod (linking the input torque more directly to the pod), providing additional resistance and thus dig-in at the cost of propulsive force. Leave blank if no such clutch. |

Pod RadiusDistance from pivot point to wheel's axle | ||

Pod Pivot HeightDistance from ground to pod's pivot point | ||

Wheel DiameterDiameter of wheel | ||

Coefficient of FrictionCoefficient of friction | [-] |

Slide Stall ForceThe amount of propulsive force the pod will produce | ||
---|---|---|

Normal Stall ForceThe amount of normal force the pod produces when operating. Excessive amounts may cause whatever holds back the pod to lift away. | ||

F/NRatio of F to N; the effective frictional coefficient of the pod. If this is larger than the actual coefficient of friction, the pod will slip rather than dig in (cells will highlight orange to display this) | [-] | |
