Precision Gearmotor - 60 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.

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.

Customer Comments

  • Is there a published MTBF for this product? I know it has metal gears, but the material the gears is made from won’t matter much if there’s a bearing failure. My application would have this running for weeks at a time 24x7 at the fully rated voltage. It’s not a high torque application, if that makes any difference. It’s running a magnetically coupled stir bar which slowly mixes a fluid in a container above it.

    Anyway, I just finished building it and was curious.

Very good gear motor

Purchased this gear motor for a dc motor position control application. I also purchased a 4:1 gearset from sparkfun’s robotic section for a pot position feedback. When combined I was able to achieve a loadless position settling time of less than .7 seconds and a 50% loaded settling time of less than 1.0 seconds and less than 4% overshoot.
This motor was ideal for my application and provides torque as specified. The pot sensor I used was not supplied by sparkfun, but similar pot sensors are available through sparkfun. Very satisfied with the product quality as spec’d. Would purchase again.
