This high quality, low current miniature 6V gear motor has a 5:1 gear ratio and is similar to Sanyo's popular 12mm gearmotors. The 3mm D-shaped output shaft is 9.3mm long to enable press fitting to many different wheels. Key specs at 6 V: 2500 RPM and 50 mA free-run, 1 oz-in (0.1 kg-cm) and 0.36 A stall.

Mounting Wheels & Encoders - probably not

This motor has a no load speed of 1000RPM so is likely going to be too quick for wheels and encoders. Best used for propellers or other high speed applications.

Mounting the Motor

Two M1.6 screw holes are available on the face plate of the motor to mount the motor on the inside of a chassis or alternatively the micro metal gearmotor mounting bracket or extended micro metal gearmotor mounting bracket can be used.
