131:1 Metal Gearmotor 37Dx57L mm 12V with 64 CPR Encoder (No End Cap)
Note: This gearmotor has been replaced by a functionally identical version with a protective end cap over the encoder.
This gearmotor is a powerful 12V brushed DC motor with a 131.25:1 metal gearbox and an integrated quadrature encoder that provides a resolution of 64 counts per revolution of the motor shaft, which corresponds to 8400 counts per revolution of the gearbox’s output shaft. These units have a 0.61"-long, 6 mm-diameter D-shaped output shaft. This gearmotor is also available without an encoder.
Key specs at 12 V: 80 RPM and 300 mA free-run, 250 oz-in (18 kg-cm) and 5 A stall.
Alternatives available with variations in these parameter(s): gear ratio Select variant…

MATLAB script to plot motor performance curves for Pololu brushed DC gearmotors
This MATLAB script, written by Ali Asgher Mansoor Habiby, plots speed, power, current draw, and efficiency as they vary with torque when you input the gearmotor specifications. It also prints the resistance of the motor, and the current draw and torque at which maximum efficiency and maximum power occur.
