This 224:1 gear motor (gearbox with motor) is a
great low-cost alternative to modified hobby servos or Tamiya
gearboxes. The low-current motor is a perfect match for our micro
dual serial motor controller, and the compact size of 2.76" x 0.886" x 1.46"
(70mm x 22.5mm x 37mm) makes this unit an attractive
choice for small robot designs.
At 5V, the gearbox and motor provide 50 oz.in.
of torque and 38 RPM, which is slightly slower than a servo. The
free-running current is 52 mA, and the stall current is 600 mA.
A built-in safety clutch engages at approximately 60 oz.in.
This gear motor comes pre-assembled, with the
gears fully enclosed. There are built-in mounting holes, and the output
shaft is 7mm in diameter with two sides flattened.
A custom molded plastic
wheel for this gear motor is available.
For a version of this gear motor with the output
shaft parallel to the motor shaft, see the GM2
gearmotor. For a similar but smaller 120:1 gear motor, see the GM7
gear motor. For a faster version, see the GM9
|Note: This gearmotor does not come with
mounting hardware, instructions, or packaging.
