Hi chaps and chapettes,
I'm building a belt driven linear actuator because I can't find one that meets my required spec within my budget. My design has a 300mm stroke and needs to run at 400mm/s. The belt runs round two 40mm diameter pulleys which need to run at 192rpm to move the belt at my required speed. The actuator will need to change direction quickly and accelerate fast due to its use in a motion simulator. Each actuator will be moving a load of around 10kg - 20kg.
So, anyway, I need a motor which is capable of powering it, which is why I'm here. I know nothing about electric motors, so maybe someone could give me some advice as to what I need?
