# How strong are wiper motors?

Contents

“ My unscientific test (using one wiper motor and a torque wrench) found that at 12 volts, on high speed, the motor has 13.5 pound-feet and on low speed, has 17.5 pound-feet of torque.” Depending on the type of motor, they can draw anywhere from 5 to 10 amps.

## What is the torque of a wiper motor?

Gearmotor for windshield wipers MRT62-43

Gearmotor for windshield wipers MRT62 – 43 1 Speed 2 Speed
No Load Speed (RPM) 30 30 / 45
Nominal Torque (RPM) 4 4
Starting Torque (Nm) 40 40 / 35
Gear Ratio 2 / 110

## How many watts is a wiper motor?

Wiper motors will probably not exceed 50 watts (4.2 amps at 12 volts). A 30 amp motor will require 360 watts and probably produce at least 250 watts of mechanical power.

## How fast is a wiper motor?

Some wiper motors have variable speeds of up to 60 revolutions per minute (rpm). Other motors can support different windshield wiper blade angles from 40 degrees up to 110 degrees to maximize wipe performance.

## How fast does a wiper motor spin?

A. The wiper motor rpm is usually for 45 rpm for normal speed and around 65 rpm when on the fast speed settings.

## How many amps is a wiper motor?

Wiper motors are used by enthusiasts to power wheel chairs. You might do well to google “wiper motor current draw”. At any rate an average wiper draws 5 amps, rising to 10 to 12 amps under heavy/stall load.

## Are wiper motors AC or DC?

In a windshield wiper for a vehicle, the driver of the vehicle typically sets a desired wiping speed, based on intensity of rain or snow. In some wiper systems, the motor is of the DC type, and speed is controlled by adjusting applied voltage.

## How much voltage can a wiper motor handle?

Voltage. The standard voltage requirement for the wiper motor is 12 volts DC. The electrical system in a running automobile usually puts out between 13 and 13.5 volts, so it’s safe to say the motor can handle up to 13.5 volts with no problem.

## What kind of motor is a wiper motor?

The wiper motor is a DC (direct current) 12V motor that includes a set of gears and a park switch. The park switch allows the motor to stop when wipers are positioned at the bottom of the windshield in their “park’ position.

## How can I speed up my wiper motor?

Speed = Torque / Load. You have more torque, you have more speed, if you want to increase speed, increase torque or decrease load. If you limit your current, all you are doing is telling the power supply to lower the voltage if the current exceeds your limit. Lowering the voltage lowers the current.

## How big is a windshield wiper motor?

12. R110DCE windshield-wiper motor is a 12 volt motor with a 3.5″ shaft with a default wiper position of 110 degrees. It should be an easy replacement for your existing motor.

## How much does a windshield wiper motor weigh?

Motor weight: 2.7 lbs.

## How much does it cost to replace windshield wiper motor?

You will pay between \$230 and \$310 for a windshield wiper motor replacement. The cost of labor on this job will be between \$50 and \$70, while the cost of parts should be between \$180 and \$250.

## How much HP is a wiper motor?

Depending on the type of motor, they can draw anywhere from 5 to 10 amps. So converting that to HP using 13V as voltage and 65% efficiency, you get 0.11HP. While that depends on factors like size of wiper, vehicle it might be used for, etc, generally the rating will be under 100 watts.

## Can a wiper motor be reversed?

Firstly, in an automotive application, your wiper motor NEVER reverses. The back an forth motion is produced by a motor that is ALWAYS spinning in ONE direction, but is changed to an oscillating back and forth by mechanical linkages. If you wish to control THAT speed, you can control the speed of the wiper motor.

## Can you make windshield wipers faster?

In addition：you can trigger the wiper work once by turning the lever down. There is also a knob on the wiper’s lever, which is the wiper’s intermittent speed control knob. … Adjust the speed of the wiper on the car on the speed knob can easily get the speed of the wiper!
