These tiny brushed DC gearmotors have a diameter of just 6 mm and weigh simply over a gram, which makes them great actuators for miniature robots and very small mechanisms. They consist of a coreless motor fastened to a planetary gearbox by a small clip. The gears are made from liquid crystal polymers (LCPs), and gearbox’s nylon result shaft is compatible with our 14 mm tires. Three gear ratios can be found:
26:1, which has a free run speed of 2500 RPM and stall torque of 1 1.5 oz-in (110 g-cm) at 6 V
136:1, that includes a free run speed of 500 RPM and stall torque of 8 oz-in (550 g-cm) at 6 V
700:1, which has a free run speed of 90 RPM and stall torque of 12 oz-in (900 g-cm) at 6 V
Notice: Stalling or overloading gearmotors can greatly decrease their lifetimes and even result in immediate damage. For these gearboxes, the suggested higher limit for instantaneous torque is certainly 3.5 oz-in (250 g-cm); we highly advise keeping used loads well under this limit. Stalls can also lead to rapid (potentially on the purchase of seconds) thermal damage to the motor windings and brushes; a general recommendation for brushed DC engine operation is 25% or much less of the stall current.
The intended nominal operating voltage for these motors is 3 V to 6 V, though generally, these types of motors can be utilized at voltages outdoors this range (rotation typically starts between 0.2 V and 0.3 V). Lower voltages is probably not practical, and higher voltages could begin negatively impacting the life span of the engine. When operating at 3 V, the free-run speed, stall torque, and stall current will all become about 50 % of what they are in 6 V as these specifications scale approximately linearly with voltage.
Since the gearmotor’s output shaft is nylon, there can be small variances in the diameter from unit to unit. These variations might cause press-match attachments like our 14 mm wheel to match loosely occasionally. If you experience a loose fitting, you could try swapping wheels or using a small dab of glue to greatly help hold the wheel on.
The following diagram shows the micro plastic gearmotor dimensions in mm. The planetary gearbox has a D-shaped plastic result shaft, which is 2 mm in diameter with a section that’s flattened by 0.5 mm. The “D” portion of the shaft is certainly 2.5 mm long. The engine measures 6 mm in diameter and 9.3 mm long, and the gearbox size, labeled “L” in the diagram below, depends on the gear ratio.
26 RPM Planetary Equipment Motor with encoder: compatibility
This small 12V motor has a magnetic encoder mounted before the gearbox for a much better resolution. Its 4 mm output shaft helps it be compatible with plenty of ep mounts and component, including clamping hubs, Planetary motor mounts, along with 4 mm toothed wheels and pinion gears.

Spur Equipment vs. Planetary Gear
The two most common setup of DC engine gearbox are spur and planetary. Spur type gearbox are simpler, less expensive, and work best for low torque applications. Torque capacity of spur type gearbox is limited because each gear in the teach bears different load. Planetary gearboxes, in contrast, share equal load over multiple gears, making them more durable for high torque software.
