Exact gear ratio: (25×30×25×40) / (10×10×15×10) =bb(50:1)

Gearmotor Dimensions:

The face plate has six mounting holes evenly spaced around the outer edge threaded for M3 screws. These mounting holes form a regular hexagon and the centers of neighboring holes are 15.5 mm apart. You can use Pololu's custom 37D metal gearmotor bracket (shown in the left picture below) to mount the gearmotor to your project via these mounting holes and the screws that come with the bracket.

Please note that unlike Pololu's smaller metal gearmotors, these 37D mm gearmotors have output shafts with a diameter of 6 mm. The Pololu universal aluminum mounting hub for 6mm shafts can be used to mount Pololu's larger Pololu wheels (80mm- and 90mm-diameter) or custom wheels and mechanisms to the gearmotor’s output shaft (see the right picture above).

The picture below shows the dimensions (in mm) of the 37D mm line of gearmotors. The value of X is 22 mm for the 19:1 37Dx52L mm and 30:1 37Dx52L mm versions, 24 mm for the 50:1 37Dx54L mm and 70:1 37Dx54L mm versions, and 26.5 mm for the 100:1 37Dx57L mm and 131:1 37Dx57L mm versions.

Warning: Do not screw too far into the mounting holes as the screws can hit the gears. Pololu recommend screwing no further than 3mm (1/8") into the screw hole.

The operational specs listed in the table below were measured at 6 V. At 12 V, the no-load RPM, stall current, and stall torque will all be approximately twice their 6V values. To see the motor specs for 12V operation, please see the short description at the top of this page or this product’s specification tab.

Selecting the Right Gearmotor

Pololu offer a wide selection of metal gearmotors that offer different combinations of speed and torque. Pololu's metal gearmotor comparison table can help you find the motor that best meets your project’s requirements.
