What kind of digital tool can be used for measuring torque on a radio control servo?
Many balances what we call in the industry top loaders have a place to put a hook on the bottom of the balance this is normally used for a pan suspended in water and used for specific gravity testing but could work for your testing as well.The tool needs to hook up to the servo arm. The servo on the right is the one.
Wow, those are very nice boats.giovanni said:
I was thinking the same. With a known motor torque, a known gear train, the final torque should be easy to calculate, subtracting a few percent for frictional losses in the gear train. Given the motor's rated torque recalculated for the gears, a safe way to go would be to derate that value by some percentage.doubletop said:EDIT - I've just read the motor spec, it gives you the torque, apply whatever gear ratio you are using to that and you have the torque for your winch. Prove it with the methods suggested. Am I missing something?
