131:1 Metal Gearmotor 37Dx57L mm 12V (Helical Pinion)
This gearmotor is a powerful brushed DC motor with 131.25:1 metal gearbox intended for operation at 12 V. The gearbox is composed mainly of spur gears, but it features helical gears for the first stage for reduced noise and improved efficiency. These units have a 16 mm-long, 6 mm-diameter D-shaped output shaft. This gearmotor is also available with an integrated encoder.

- Length measurement is from gearbox face plate to back of motor (it does not include the output shaft or motor terminals). See dimension diagram for details.
- D shaft.
- Stalling is likely to damage the gearmotor. Stall parameters come from a theoretical extrapolation of performance at loads far from stall. As the motor heats up, as happens as it approaches an actual stall, the stall torque and current decrease.
- This is the output power at the maximum recommended operating load of 10 kg⋅cm; higher power might be achievable for brief durations at higher loads (see performance graphs in the datasheet).
- This motor will run at 6 V but is intended for operation at 12 V.
