I have a 12.25-inch disk when loaded with components equals about 8 pounds. Others in the same field have a problem of smoking the motor during startup. I want to run at a variable speed to 3600 rpm. It is important to keep the motor as small as possible, and long life and extremely low maintenance are important.
Have an insight or suggestion?

Re: How can I avoid smoking the motor at startup?10 February 2010 at 1:29pmI suggest he go to a motor and drive manufacturer. There are many issues that will need to be addressed beyond startup, such as how often the motor starts, physical space limitations, and type of motor – conventional AC and VFD or brushless DC, etc.
