This cylindrical, 2.62″ x 0.98″ x 0.98″ gearmotor uses a brushed DC motor with extra-strong magnets and a 98.78:1 metal gearbox to deliver a lot of power in a relatively small package. It has an integrated 48 CPR quadrature encoder on the motor shaft, which provides 4741 counts per revolution of the gearbox’s output shaft. These units have a 0.315″-long, 4 mm-diameter D-shaped output shaft.
These motors are intended for use at 6 V. In general, these kinds of motors can run at voltages above and below this nominal voltage, so they should comfortably operate in the 3 – 9 V range, though they can begin rotating at voltages as low as 1 V. Higher voltages could start negatively affecting the life of the motor.
Key specs at 6 V: 100 RPM and 450 mA free-run, 160 oz-in (11.5 kg-cm) and 6 A stall.
