Faulhaber 1524E006S123 motor with 15/5S141:1K832 gearhead and HES164A encoder


Vendor's Description: 


As if the name isn't enough to descibe these motors, they are absolutely the best I've ever had for the price!

 

This miniature Swiss-made precision motor has a 141:1 gear ratio. And that is not the good part. It also incorporates a magnetic quadrature encoder that is mounted to the motor before the gear box. The encoder on the motor gives 1 pulse per revolution and 141 pulses per revolution of the gear box. Speed and direction both can be determined from the encoder. Motors operate from 3-12V volts. At 3V, RPM is approximately 23.6. At 6V 47.2 RPM and 12V, 94.5 RPM. At 12V, motor draws 10mA(that's less than an LED). The above measurements taken under no load conditions. Torque is approximately 116mNm (approx. 16.43oz in or 1182.88g cm), meaning it will strip the skin from the fingers if you clamp down on it and refuse to let go. Motor and gear box measure 17mm diameter and 58.75mm long. It also includes a 6mm long shaft that is 2mm in diameter with a 0.6mm wide X 2mm deep slot. All electrical connections are brought out to a 3" long 6-conductor flat ribbon cable with 2x3 pin female IDC connector. Connector pin outs are 1=motor(+) 2=encoder Vcc (5v) 3=encoder channel A 4=encoder channel B 5=encoder ground 6=motor(-). These motors were removed from working equipment.*

If you are not from the US, I do not know if Goldmine or All Electronics will ship to you.

That looks like a pretty nice little motor. Adding encoders and gearing down the motor is always tricky, so I really like when a motor comes with both already designed in.

These are pretty cool motors, I got a pair from Ebay a while back. The tricky part is that the hex set screw holding the bevel gears is very tiny and I had to get a special set to use with it. And also the set screws don't always want to come out, usually trashing a 0.035" (0.889 mm) allen wrench.  I've not used these yet, but had plans for a minisumo wiht them. Encoders would be primarily for velocity then, since odometry would be questionable in a match.

I couldn't get the set screw off with a specially ordered hex key, even after Liquid Wrench, or get the hex key brand that supposedly works better. I cut into the set screw with my Dremel, took 5 seconds, was able to slide the gear off. The gear might even be reusable if one drilled a new set screw hole though I wouldn't guarantee it.
