I need a motor and I'm not sure what to be looking for. I know the power and torque I need (3 N*m @ 1200 rpm = 1/2 HP). Is finding a motor as simple as matching these two values?
Edit: The motor will be used essentially like a fan motor; It will have to maintain a (fairly) constant speed for long periods of time. It's power will come from the wall (120V) so it could probably be AC but doesn't have to be. It'll be sitting still at room temperature.
I'm mostly trying to understand how to choose a motor based upon torque/power requirements as I don't know what I'm doing when it comes to this.
EDIT: I can incorporate something like a gearbox, I just don't know the process of picking a motor + gearbox that does what I actually want.
