Procedure of Selection

Type selection

By referring to Couplicon selected from the table, Couplicon selected based on motor, and Couplicon selected based on application, select the most appropriate Couplicon type.

Size selection

Be sure to select a size with performance of rated torque higher than the load torque of the system.
The rated torque is a value with load variation during operation considered and  does not require correction at the time of selection.
Select the size so that the load torque generated by continuous operation may not be more than the rated torque.

Torque correction by operating temperature

For rubber/resin-material Couplicon, the rated torque and max. torque vary depending on the operating temperature.
If ambient temperature exceeds 30°C, be sure to correct the rated torque and max. torque with temperature correction factor shown in the following table.
Need to correct: High Gain Type, Jaw Type, Oldham Type, Serration Type

Ambient temperature Temperature correction factor
-20℃~30℃ 1.00
30℃~40℃ 0.80
40℃~60℃ 0.70
60℃~120℃ 0.55

MOHS-C MOP-C MSXP-C are superior in heat resistance and the rated torque and max. torque do not vary depending on the operating temperature. Correction by temperature correction factor is not required.

Checking of Max. Bore Diameter and Max. Rotational Frequency

Ensure that both of the max. bore diameter and max. rotational frequency exceed the bore diameter and rotational frequency specified in the design conditions.
If either or both of the max. bore diameter and max. rotational frequency are not satisfied, change the size.

Summary

Finally, ensure that other items also satisfy the design conditions by referring to the Dimension / Performance table.
