Retired RETIRED

This product has been retired from our catalog and is no longer for sale.

This page is made available for those looking for datasheets and the simply curious. Please refer to the description to see if a replacement part is available.

Replacement: None. We are no longer carrying this DC motor in our catalog. This page is for reference only.

Description: This is a small toy DC motor with about 29.5mm long leads. It has a small circular shaft which measures about 2.8mm long.

The motor has an operating voltage range of 1.5 to 4.5VDC and a no load speed of 23000 RPM (@4.5VDC, 70mA). More information is available in the spec sheet linked below.

  • Some mounting hardware would be A+…

  • Not the same, but very similar one: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11696

  • Hi, can someone help me interpret simply what the @4.5VDC, 70mA means? There is another motor but is has @4.5VDC, 320mA. I am guessing the 4.5VDC is the operating voltage for the motor and is the amps the amount of currents it will need to get to the no load speed?

    so the 70mA essentially is a better motor than the 320mA one since it require less current but get you more speed also?

    and I am a newbie. I am following the inventor guide and it has circuit#12 describe as using a transistor as a switch and that has collector current of 1A so it should not be a problem I think. But if I am using a transistor that only has max collector current of 200mA should this still drive the 320mA motor?

    Can someone help me understand this?

  • Two questions: 1. Does Sparkfun have a source for the more powerful 09110 motor by chance? 2. Would it be acceptable to assume that the larger 09110 have the same dimensions as this motor (the 06230)?

  • Does anyone know this weight???

  • How about including a sprocket with this motor, and verifying if it can be a drop in replacement for any gearboxes out there such as the Tamiya twin motor gearbox which comes stock with a 3v motor. An observed stall current spec would also be nice as it is missing from the datasheet, I can only guess its in the ball park of 700mA. Many thanks SFE.

    • I don’t really care for this sight much (and would rather order from Spark Fun) but the do carry the motor you want.

    • I just busted out my snazy digital calipers and it appears that this motor is much smaller than the motors in the Tamiya twin motor gearbox. If you do find any replacement motors for the gearbox I would be interested in where you found them.

    • To clarify I mean pinion instead of sprocket

  • How about ideas for wheels for these things, are there any plans to add some to the wheels section soon?

    • This is just an ungeared motor. It has plenty of speed (23000 RPM) but almost no torque, so you will pretty much never want to connect a wheel directly to the output shaft. You will need to use this motor with a gearbox that increases torque at the expense of speed, and the wheel would be mounted to the output shaft of the gearbox.

  • Does anyone know if you need a separate motor driver for this, or if you can just plug it into an Arduino, for example, and it will run? Maybe use PWM to regulate speed?
