need dimensions for GM13a motor
« on: July 03, 2009, 07:45:39 PM »
I'm trying to CAD this motor up, but the only dimensions I can find are:
Quote
Length (mm):      33.10 mm
Width (mm):     12.00 mm
Height (mm):     10.00 mm


Somewhat useless, it doesn't mention the details, like shaft length/diameter, etc . . . anyone got more info? ;D

this is the actual motor but it has no dimensions listed http://www.robotmarketplace.com/products/0-GM13A.html.

Here is an alternative with dimensions and similar performance specs http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/997

I find phoning the company or emailing them with questions helps, they are generally very quick to respond.

coming back to this motor . . . I see two places selling it, Solarbotics:
http://www.solarbotics.com/products/gm13a/
and Pololu:
http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/1097

They each list very different torque and rpm specs. Anyone verified the torque/rpm?

(robotmarketplace gets the specs from solarbotics)
