Robot DC Gearhead Motor - 6v 180rpm w/ Encoder

Price: $29.95
Availibility: In Stock
Item #: KIT-MTR-36-06-180


We searched high and low to find an affordable yet high quality DC motor for robotics, and a solid start to our Robot Motors section. After a lot of trial and error, testing dozens of motors, we have found what we believe to be a solid choice for small-medium sized robots weighing 2-5 lbs. The RPM make them an ideal choice for 3-4" wheels, and with an integrated encoder you can calculate odometry data to make your robots navigate the real world.

This motor includes a 6-pin 2.0mm pitch PH JST cable that breaks out motor inputs and the associated encoder I/O.
