## How many RPM is a windshield 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.

## Which motor is used in car wiper?

## 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 long do wiper motors last?

Windshield wiper motors are designed to last up to 1.5 million wipes, so they should be able to keep the rain, snow, and road grime off your windshield for years and years.
