A Guide to Reading PMD Motor Datasheets

Need help understanding datasheets?

How frustrating is it when you can’t find the information you need? It can even be worse when everything is in front of you, but somehow makes no sense – it may as well be in a foreign language. That sinking feeling that you’re wasting time, and everyone has their own solution too:

“I’ll make another cup of coffee!”

“I’ll just come back to it later”

or, my favourite –

“I know, I’ll read it slower! Concentrate…”

Sometimes you don’t understand what the data means, but often the problem is that the information in front of you lacks context. I understand the values, but do they affect my design? What information is relevant to me?

Help is at hand!

For each of our devices, we produce datasheets and product web pages packed full of specifications and results from our testing procedures. We even summarise key features and performance graphs on the front page for easy access and quick filtering. But wait, there’s more…

We have just released a help-guide to aid you through our datasheets. It can help you save time in understanding the data, and can be used as a quick reference if you are having troubles with a particular section.

So please take a look, you can click here (content has since been depreciated!), it’s a great resource designed to save you time and frustration. Part of our job at Precision Microdrives is to help you do your job as efficiently as possible, and of course, if there’s anything you still have questions about you can drop us a line at [email protected].
