Compact, Dynamic, Dependable - Servo Motors By B&R

The dynamics of a system can generally be characterized based on two values: the available motor torque and the moment of inertia for the power transmission system. The later of the two consists of the moment of inertia of both the motor and the load and is an important measurement of the system's dynamics. Lower moment of inertia means higher dynamic properties for the system. In combination...
