Search the web for frameless or kit motors and you will find many offerings to choose from.  When looking at the motor specifications, there are many important parameters to consider such as rated speed, rated current, peak current, etc.  What do all these things mean and why is it important to understand how the values are being presented?

Electric motors are used in machines and processes all around us.  You can find them in factories, automobiles, airplanes, robots and even your favorite DVD vending machine.  Regardless of the application, managing heat dissipation is a common theme. Electric motors are often selected based upon a particular work or load requirement.  One consideration of this selection process is managing heat dissipation.  Although electric motor design is constantly improving, all generate heat through losses and inefficiencies.  This needs to be evaluated when selecting the proper motor for your needs.
