The Influence of Operating Speed on Stepper Motor Selection

Frequently, when it comes to step motor selection, users will select a motor with the highest holding torque rating, assuming that it will give them optimal performance. However, it is an improper practice to choose a motor based on holding torque alone. In fact, the step motor with the highest holding torque in many situations can prove to be a poor choice, especially when trying to maximize torque at desired operating speed.
