Hidden Costs in Motor Specifications

It is a challenge to write a good motor specification. Typical spec. problems are omitted or ambiguous requirements, or overly tight tolerances that drive up cost but not value. These problems create hidden penalties in cost, performance, reliability, and development time.

Topics will include spec.?s for demagnetization, mechanical considerations, torque ripple, performance, and others.
