Engineered by Precision Microdrives, a complete selection of DC gearmotors are available for a variety of power and continuous drive applications. These geared motors primarily belong to the miniature series of Precision Microdrives spur gearmotors and have a larger form factor (for example, 102mm in body diameter). Addressing the needs of power and continuous drive applications, the geared motors exert medium to high torques (for example, 500 mNm to 7000 mNm) to avoid overdriving the motor under load. These gearmotors maintain controlled speeds through continuous and periodic loading throughout the operating duty. Typical industrial applications include mixers or stirrers (for paint), drive belts and production lines. Typical consumer applications include printing machines, model toy cars, and electric curtain rails.
