Customer Comments

  • hello, general comment, people from all over the world order on this site, is this possible to have the specs in METRICS as well as whatever weird fantasy system you like to use over there, I can bear converting inches and feets to cm and meter but I’m having a bit more of a problem with whatever “oz-in” is and this is freaking annoying. (specially when you mix it up a bit with things like “Shaft Size: 6mm Diameter x 0.715” Length” ) thanks.

  • Is there a data sheet for this motor? I’m curious about the shaft bearing and how much radial load it can take.

  • Is there a way to calculate how the motor would act at 5V? In terms of torque and speed?

    • For a DC motor, stall torque and no-load speed are (theoretically) proportional to the voltage: 5v/12v = 0.4167 368oz-in * 0.4167 = 153oz-in 10RPM * 0.4167 = 4.167RPM.

      So @ 5v, stall torque is 153oz-in and no load speed is 4.167RPM.
