The 3256E_0 is a 12 volt gear motor, generating 0.82 Kg-cm of torque at 46 RPM. It's a small, inexpensive motor that can output a small amount of power. It is very efficient for its size, so less power is lost in the form of heat.

This motor comes equipped with an E4P US Digital Encoder, which keeps track of the motor's rotation, allowing you to control your motor precisely.
