Precision Gearmotor - 6 RPM (6-12V)

These precision gearmotors are incredibly tough and feature full metal gears to help you drive wheels, gears, or almost anything else that needs to turn. They have a gear ratio of 500:1 and operate up to 12 volts and deliver a stall torque of 1111 oz-in. and a max speed of 6 RPM. Each precision gearmotor sports a 6mm diameter D-shaft that protrudes from them.

Precision Gearmotor - 6 RPM (6-12V) Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Robotics

This skill concerns mechanical and robotics knowledge. You may need to know how mechanical parts interact, how motors work, or how to use motor drivers and controllers.

2 Robotics

Skill Level: Rookie - You will be required to know some basics about motors, basic motor drivers and how simple robotic motion can be accomplished.
See all skill levels

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

3 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.

  • Very nice motor. The label on the motor I received said "Robotzone", so I guess that's who makes this assembly. The motor specs listed are pretty close to the characteristics of the motor I received. I don't have a way to test max torque, but stall current was about 1A.

    A couple of notes:

    1. There are 6 blind threaded mounting holes, not 3. All 6 mounting holes in my motor are the same thread (as listed on the print), and approx same depth.

    2. Depth of the mounting holes is not listed on the print. (I measured about 3-4mm)

    3. You have to make EXTREMELY sure that the screws that you use to mount the motor do not bottom out in the mounting holes. If they do, they will push the gearbox apart.

    4. A few of the dimensions of the motor I received were outside the dimensions listed in the print. Nothing critical for what I am doing, but something to be aware of if you're planning on putting this motor in a very tight space. The mounting holes, shaft, and shaft location were all to print, which is what mattered to me.
