Need some basic informaton ... I have a 24v gearmotor that runs perfectly fine on 24 volts or 12 volts. Of course, at 12 volts, the motor speed is reduced. Two very basic questons have come to mind:
1) Is motor speed directly proportional to voltage - i.e., does the motor run half as fast at 12 volts versus 24?
2) Does reducing the voltage and speed reduce the torque, or does it remain relatively constant? I have always heard that "electric motors develop 100% of their torque instantly" ... it would seem that would have to be definitely independent of speed!
