How to use the motor torque calculator:

The above tool requires the following data for calculation:

  1. Motor-rated power in HP or kW. (Mandatory)
  2. Rated speed of the motor. (Mandatory)

The rated power and rated speed of the motor can be found on the nameplate of the motor. After entering the required data, click on the “Calculate” button to find out the full load torque of the motor.

Motor torque calculation

Calculation of motor torque when it is rated in kilowatts:

    \[    Torque_(_N_._m_) =\frac{ 9549 \times P_k_W }{Rated-RPM} \]

Calculation of motor torque when it is rated in horsepower:

    \[    Torque_(_i_n_._l_b_) =\frac{ 63025 \times P_h_p}{Rated-RPM} \]

    \[    Torque_(_i_n_._f_t_) =\frac{ 5252 \times P_h_p}{Rated-RPM} \]

Where,

  • Torque N.m: Torque in Newton-meter.
  • PkW : Power in kilowatts.
  • Torque in.lb: Torque in Inch – pounds.
  • Php : Power in horsepower.
  • Torque ft.lb: Torque in Feet – pounds.

  1. Which one is correct the table or the calculator?

    55kW drive in table @1500rpm gives 525.2Nm

    55kW drive in calculator @1500rpm gives 350Nm

    Thanks

    • Hello Mark, Perhaps you are referring to the wrong value. Anyways, there could be quite a small variation between the calculated value and those in the table.
