12V 37D Metal Gearmotors

These 37D gearmotors have 12 V motors with a stall current of 5.5 A and a typical free-run current of 200 mA. They are available in a range of gear ratios from 6.3:1 to 150:1, and all versions are available with integrated 64 CPR quadrature encoders on the motor shafts.

The following table shows all of the versions available with this 12 V motor (see the 37D metal gearmotor datasheet (2MB pdf) for more information, including detailed performance graphs for each gearmotor version):

* Output power for these units is constrained by gearbox load limits; spec provided is output power at max recommended load of 10 kg⋅cm.

Note: The listed stall torques and currents are theoretical extrapolations; units will typically stall well before these points as the motors heat up. Stalling or overloading gearmotors can greatly decrease their lifetimes and even result in immediate damage. The recommended upper limit for continuously applied loads is 10 kg-cm (150 oz-in), and the recommended upper limit for instantaneous torque is 25 kg-cm (350 oz-in). Stalls can also result in rapid (potentially on the order of seconds) thermal damage to the motor windings and brushes; a general recommendation for brushed DC motor operation is 25% or less of the stall current.

24 V versions are also available that offer approximately the same performance at 24 V as these 12 V versions offer at 12 V, but with half the current draw.
