This gearmotor is a powerful brushed DC motor with 18.75:1 metal gearbox intended for operation at 12 V. The gearbox is composed mainly of spur gears, but it features helical gears for the first stage for reduced noise and improved efficiency. These units have a 16 mm-long, 6 mm-diameter D-shaped output shaft. This gearmotor is also available with an integrated encoder.
Key specifications: 12 V 530 RPM, 200 mA 8.5 kg⋅cm (120 oz⋅in), 5.5 A
Measuring 37 mm (1.46″) in diameter, these brushed DC gearmotors are the largest and most powerful we carry. They are available in a range of gear ratios from 6.3:1 to 150:1 and with 12 V or 24 V motors, and all versions are available with integrated 64 CPR quadrature encoders on the motor shafts. The 12 V and 24 V motors offer approximately the same performance at their respective nominal voltages, with the 24 V motor drawing half the current of the 12 V motor. See the 37D metal gearmotor datasheet
(2MB pdf) for more information, including detailed performance graphs for each gearmotor version.
In general, these kinds of motors can run at voltages above and below the nominal voltages; lower voltages might not be practical, and higher voltages could start negatively affecting the life of the motor.Warning
: Do not screw too far into the mounting holes as the screws can hit the gears. We recommend screwing no more than 3mm (0.12″) into the screw hole.
