I am an engineering student. I am working on a project where we need to use something called a vertical pipeline crawler. It is just a device that travels inside pipelines for inspection.
I found a crawler online, and I wanted to calculate the amount of power it uses. In specifications (there is more specs than below): Speeds up to 10 m/min Mass: 10 kg Maximum pull: 27 kg Power: 600 W 115 / 230 VAC
Initially what I did was to multiply the weight it can carry by the speed: mgv = 27*9.81*(10/60) = 44.145 Watts But it also says 600 W for power in specs. So how much power does this device need? Is the input 600 and output 44.145, isn't that very inefficient for an electrical device? Is my thought process wrong, what should use?
(I didn't want to share the link for the product thinking it might be against the website rules, however its pretty easy to find online)
