Topic: Ratings of a Motor.. (Read 668 times) previous topic - next topic



I just purchased a geared motor from a junk shop. It seems to run when it is powered  :smiley-mr-green: (That's a good news for the money I paid).. But I couldn't get the ratings for this motor. Is there any way to find its voltage rating, current rating and its gear ratio?

Thank you...


Are there any identifying numbers on the motor?  If you're lucky you'll be able to find the specifications by searching the web for those identifying numbers.

DC motor ratings are very loose.  If you provide more voltage they will draw more current, spin faster, and heat up more.  If you have a variable voltage power supply you can crank up the speed until the motor gets hot.

Can you post a picture of the motor here, with a ruler or other means of gauging size next to it?
I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.


Try using a multimeter (only for current and resistance, that is).
