Customer Comments

  • Besides the price, what are the advantages to this over a normal motor?

    • I know I’m 4 years late, but Miga has a page on this: http://www.migamotors.com/index.php?main_page=faqs

  • People should know that this doesn’t match the part in the datasheet. It can’t be driven directly by a microcontroller because it doesn’t have the 5 pins specified in the datasheet. It has a positive and ground. It also pulses back and forth and doesn’t stay completely rotated. Depending on what you need for your project, this might not be the best solution, as I found out the hard way. Alan

    • Look at the “Pinouts” link for the Miga Rotary 6P/. The first picture is the pinout for this device. Or just copy and paste this link.<br />

      But yes, the datasheet is incorrect. It appears to be the one for the 6P.
