The kit includes offset gear motors that operate on a voltage of 3-6V. These motors have a no load current of 200mA and a stall current of 3A at 6V (1.5A at 3V), a gearbox ratio of 48:1, and a wheel speed of 65RPM at 3V unloaded. The wheel encoders in this kit require a supply voltage of 3-24V, a supply current of 4mA, and are made up of two neodymium 8-pole magnets with rubber hubs, along with two hall-effect sensors terminated with 150mm cables and 3-pin female servo headers.
With the Hobby Motor and Encoder Kit, you can build a variety of robots, from simple line-followers to complex autonomous bots. The gearmotor's high torque and low-speed characteristics make it perfect for direct-drive wheels on small robots. The wheel encoders provide precise control over your robot's movements, allowing for accurate navigation and maneuvering.
