Sparkfun's Standard Gearmotor - 0.5 RPM (3-12V) is a robust and reliable motor, perfect for driving wheels, gears, or any other rotating components. It features full metal gears and operates on a voltage range of 3 to 12 Volts. The gearmotor has a gear ratio of 3000:1, a stall torque of 84864.2 grams-cm at 12V, and a maximum speed of 0.5 RPM. It also comes with a 6mm diameter D-shaft.
The gearmotor is not just durable but also efficient. It has a no-load current of 95mA at 12V and a stall current of 0.5A at 12V. It is also reversible, adding to its versatility. The gearmotor's insulation resistance is 10 MOhm, and it has a dielectric strength of 300VDC.
One of the key features of this gearmotor is its shaft size. The shaft is 6mm in diameter and 31.24mm in length, providing ample space for attachments. The gearmotor itself is lightweight, weighing only 138.91 grams, making it easy to incorporate into any project.
However, Sparkfun advises against stalling the motor as it may cause damage to the gears. So, when testing or using the gearmotor, it's important to keep this in mind.
With its robust build, efficient operation, and versatile features, Sparkfun's Standard Gearmotor - 0.5 RPM (3-12V) is a great choice for any project requiring a reliable and powerful motor. Whether you're building a robot, a mechanical device, or a piece of interactive art, this gearmotor can provide the movement you need.
