This gearmotor is a miniature 27.5 x 12 x 10mm, low-current brushed DC motor with 986.41:1 metal gearbox, similar to Sanyo’s popular 12 mm gearmotors. These units have a 9.3mm long, 3 mm-diameter D-shaped output shaft.
Key specs at 6 V: 31 RPM and 70 mA free-run, 12kg.cm (170 oz-in) and 1.6 A stall. Note stalling this motor will damage the gearbox.
Note: Stalling or overloading gearmotors can greatly decrease their lifetimes and even result in immediate damage. The recommended upper limit for instantaneous torque is 2.5 kg-cm (35 oz-in) for the 380:1 and 1000:1 gearboxes, and 2 kg-cm (25 oz-in) for all the other gear ratios; . Stalls can also result in rapid (potentially on the order of seconds) thermal damage to the motor windings and brushes, especially for the versions that use high-power (HP and HPCB) motors; a general recommendation for brushed DC motor operation is 25% or less of the stall current.
