The rated torque varies from 3.47 oz-in (30:1) to 6.94 oz-in (240:1). Short direction stall torques for the HG16-030AA (30:1 ratio at 6 volts DC) reach 11.0 oz-in, and for the HG16-240AC exceed 56.0 oz-in.

The optional miniature encoder allows the user to accurately position the HG series DC gearmotor in increments of 75, 150, 160, and 200 counts of positions per revolution. Gearmotor no load speeds range from 390 rpm in the 30:1 gearmotor model down to 60 rpm in the 240:1 models.
