This gearmotor is designed for low-voltage power-efficiency, but it isn’t scared of generating a bit of torque. And the output shaft is shaped just like the GM2/3/8/9 for full accessory compatibility!

It’s a small, slow, power-efficient but torquey motor, weighing in at only 35.7g (1.26oz)! It’s a bit bigger than its more powerful brethren, measuring in at 51.7mm (2.04″) long, 27.3mm (1.07″) wide, and 32.1mm deep (1.26″) excluding shaft.

Here are the basic stats:

Voltage Unloaded
RPM Torque Stall Current
3V 16mA 12.0 43.6 in*oz 253mA
6V 24mA 30.6 83.5 in*oz 492mA
9V 38mA 46.9 105.3 in*oz 738mA

Please note that we have not tested this unit for compatibility with the Wheel-Watcher encoders…yet!

Do you need to mount something to the shaft of the motor? Try the GMW – it’s a very effective platform for a variety uses. Alternatively, you’ll also find that a #2×1/4″ SMS screw will provide a snug fit for your need.

We also have encoders, aluminum brackets, and 55:1 and 104:1 conversion gears for your GM17.

(Motors are sold individually, wheels are not included)
