A shaft connected to a power source (usually Motor) on which pulley OR Sprocket is mounted.
A shaft connected to a application where work need to be performed.
Its rating OR capacity of a motor, usually mentioned on motor with other details.
Its motor shaft revolutions per minute (RPM). This information is typically found on plate attached to the motor.
It is a revolution per minute of driven shaft with respect to mounted pulley OR sprocket. This can be derived from the formula = ((Driver Pulley dia./Driven pulley dia.)X Driver RPM) & for sprockets, tooth count may be used in place of diameter.
This is the distance between centers of the driver shaft & driven shaft.
A factor need to be considered while designing a drive that allows it to operate without damage. The correct service factor is determined by
- The extent & frequency of peak loads.
- Number of operating hours per day.
- Design of the motor.
