6V High-Power Carbon Brush (HPCB) Micro Metal Gearmotors

These micro metal gearmotors have high-power, 6 V motors with a stall current of 1.6 A and a typical free-run current of 120 mA. They use the same motors as the 6V HP versions, but they feature long-life carbon brushes instead of precious metal brushes.

Note: Stalling or overloading gearmotors can greatly decrease their lifetimes and even result in immediate damage. The recommended upper limit for instantaneous torque is 35 oz-in (2.5 kg-cm) for the 1000:1 gearboxes and 25 oz-in (2 kg*cm) for all the other gear ratios; we strongly advise keeping applied loads well under this limit. Stalls can also result in rapid (potentially on the order of seconds) thermal damage to the motor windings and brushes, especially for the versions that use high-power (HP and HPCB) motors; a general recommendation for brushed DC motor operation is 25% or less of the stall current.

Versions with other motors are also available. You can use the following selection boxes to choose from all of our micro metal gearmotor versions:
