612 RPM HD Premium Planetary Gear Motor w/Encoder


Tech Tips:

  • The pulse amplitude of the encoder’s output square wave signal is dependent on the voltage you supply the sensor.  For example, if you provide 5V to Sensor Voltage +, then Channels A & B will have a pulse amplitude of 5V.

  • To enhance the resolution, the encoder is attached to the motor before the gearbox.

  • Gear train damage can occur if stalled (locked).
