Sparkfun presents a pair of right-angle hobby gearmotors from DAGU. These are the same gearmotors used in the Magician Chassis and RedBot Kit. They provide a cost-effective and simple solution to set your wheels in motion. The right-angle design of these gearmotors enables precise tracking and control of wheel rotation.
The gearmotors operate on a voltage range of 3-6V and have a no-load current of 200mA. They feature a stall current of 3A at 6V (1.5A at 3V), a gearbox ratio of 48:1, and a wheel speed of 65 rpm at 3V unloaded.
These gearmotors are sold in pairs, making them perfect for projects that require dual motor control.
Features of these gearmotors include:
- Operating Voltage: 3V – 6V
- No Load Speed: 65RPM
- No Load Current: 200mA
- Stall Current: 3A @ 6V (1.5A @ 3V)
- Gearbox Ratio: 48:1
- Wheel Speed: 65rpm @ 3V unloaded (Recommended)
For more detailed information, you can refer to the datasheet (DG02S). There is also a product video available that provides an in-depth look at the gearmotors and their capabilities.
Whether you're building a robot, a model vehicle, or any other project that requires controlled wheel movement, these gearmotors from Sparkfun are an excellent choice. Their right-angle design, ease of use, and affordability make them stand out in the world of hobby motors.
