drive speed is the speed equal to that of driving
mechanism.like the gear which is mounted on driving shaft
which is conected to motor.and driven speed is that which
is rotated by the driving mechanism.like the gear on other
shaft which is reciving power to the driving gear.
In MOTOR & GEARBOX.
The motor is coupled to the input shaft of the gearbox by
In this arrangement motor output shaft rpm is transmitted
to the gearbox input shaft.
So in this, drive speed is the speed of the motor & driven
speed is the speed of input shaft of gearbox.
Input shaft speed of the gearbox is not equal to output
shaft. it may be greater or lower depending on the gear
