3268_1 12V/17.3Kg-cm/18RPM 139:1 DC Gear Motor
The 3268 is a 12 volt gear motor, generating 17.3 Kg-cm of torque at 18 RPM. It's a standard-sized motor suitable for low-torque, high-speed applications.
Since this motor has a lower power output for its size, you can expect it to have a longer lifespan than other motors.
- 8mm Shaft
- 111.5mm Motor Length
The planetary gearbox on this motor is more sophisticated than a typical spur gearbox and will provide greater efficiency, higher torque, and quieter motor operation.
The 3268 DC motor connects to either of the following controllers:
- 1064 - PhidgetMotorControl HC
- 1065 - PhidgetMotorControl 1-Motor
Motor Specifications at Peak Efficiency
|Output Torque||17.3 Kg-cm|
|Rated Speed||18 RPM|
|Torque Produced When Stalled||128 Kg-cm|
|Motor Length (including gearbox)||111.5mm|
|Number of gear trains||3|
|Maximum Strength of Gears||61 Kg-cm|
|Maximum Shaft Overhung Load||50N|
|Maximum Shaft Thrust Load||35N|
The torque this motor produces when it stalls exceeds the rated strength of the gearbox. This means that stalling or very heavily loading this motor can cause serious damage to the gearbox. To avoid damage, avoid sudden loads or any load higher than the Maximum Strength of Gears spec.
