1000:1 Micro Metal Gearmotor LP 6V with Extended Motor Shaft

1000:1 Micro Metal Gearmotor LP 6V with Extended Motor Shaft


This gearmotor is a miniature low-power, 6 V brushed DC motor with a 986.41:1 metal gearbox, making it a great choice for applications requiring fine control at very low speeds. It has a cross section of 10 × 12 mm, and the D-shaped gearbox output shaft is 9 mm long and 3 mm in diameter.

This version also has a 4.5 × 1 mm extended motor shaft.

These tiny brushed DC gearmotors are available in a wide range of gear ratios—from 5:1 up to 1000:1—and with five different motors: high-power 6 V and 12 V motors with long-life carbon brushes (HPCB), and high-power (HP), medium power (MP), and low power (LP) 6 V motors with shorter-life precious metal brushes.

This model has an additional 1 mm-diameter output shaft that protrudes from the rear of the motor. This 4.5 mm-long rear shaft rotates at the same speed as the input to the gearbox and offers a way to add an encoder, such as our encoders for micro metal gearmotors, to provide motor speed or position feedback.
