Why Efficiency Is Important

Posted by Dave Beckstoffer   Jul 17, 2018   0 Comments

Motor efficiency is the ratio between power output, which is mechanical, and power input, which is electrical.  Losses exist in all motors due to friction, heat, and materials, to name a few factors, so minimizing these losses is critical for applications that run off a battery.  The higher the efficiency of the motor, the longer the battery life during operation which results in longer time between charging.
