The situation is in a wood plant where a tenonor has different gap spacing
for three lines. One line has 12" spacing another has 10" and the last has 8"
spacings. The feet per minute to hertz ratio or relationship I guess would
have to be based on the diameter of the sprocket to the motor speed which
is being driven by an inverter.
The current machine in question was setup to have 100fpm = 60hz. I want to know if this is just simply getting the relationship of 1hz = 1.67fpm? by
dividing 100 by 60. This machine has 8" spacings.
The other machine which has 10" spacing does not have a relationship like this since it was a machine that was modified in the plant.
The hertz will vary but nominally it is 60Hz. I just need the relationship between the two that also includes the gearbox. The hertz is variable by the use of an inverter to increase or decrease the speed of the chain. The motor is 1760RPM but the output is changed by the gearbox ratio of 34.45.
