How do you calculate Continuous Torque?

Continuous torque is the calculated torque that takes into account variation over time. To calculate continuous torque, you will need the motion profile (acceleration), the inertia, and any dwell time. For a constant motion (speed) application, the continuous torque is typically the friction torque of the bearing.

The full calculation can be found in the ‘Motor Sizing 101’ technical paper.
