  1. Jan 21, 2014 #1
    Dear all.

    I need guideline for warm gear selection single axis tracker and dual axis tracker.
    1) what are point need to be considered for calculation
    2)relation between gear ratio ,torque and speed.
    3)which motor will perform better on worm gear box and why??
    4)radial and axial load calculation in below data sheet.
    5) output power/torque ,Input power/torque consideration ??
    6)In datasheet below what is 1st and 2nd stage gear ratio refers too.
