Planetary DC Gearmotor features IP54 sealed design.

Press Release Summary:

Accepting any 12 Vdc source, including battery power, Model MMP-D33-455A-12V GP81-03.7 develops 18 lb-in. continuous torque at 1,097 rpm and 354 lb-in. peak. Reversible gearmotor measures 3.2 in. dia x 8.4 in. L with 19 mm dia x 40 mm L keyed output shaft. Mounting is accomplished with 4 face mount M6 threaded holes, equally spaced on 65 mm dia B.C. Requiring 28.6 A at 12 Vdc to generate full-load torque, motor is suited for solar trackers, robotics, and automation applications.

Original Press Release:

New 12 Volt, Planetary DC Gearmotor

"Compact & Lightweight yet Powerful Unit provides benefits for Solar Trackers, Robotics & Automation Applications"

"IP-54" Sealed, High Power, 12 Vdc Gearmotor Develops 18 Lb. In. Torque at 1097 RPM

Midwest Motion Products of Watertown, Minnesota, is pleased to announce the release of a new DC Gear- Motor, Model # MMP-D33-455A-12V GP81-03.7 - Accepting any 12 Volt DC source, including battery power, this robust Gear Motor measures just 3.2" (max) Diameter, by 8.4" long and has a keyed output shaft of 19mm diameter by 40mm long. Easy mounting is accomplished with 4 "face mount" M6 threaded holes, equally spaced on a 65mm Dia. B.C. or an optional NEMA34 Flange, is also available.

The output of this fully reversible gearmotor is rated for 18 IN-LBS continuous torque, at 1097 RPM, and 354 IN-LBS Peak. Despite its compact size, and weight of approximately 10 pounds, it's an efficient design, requiring just 28.6 Amps at 12 Volts DC to generate its Full-Load Torque. This translates into long battery charge, very LOW-NOISE operation, and lower cost drive electronics. Motor windings for 18v, 24v, 28v, 36v, 42v, 48v, 60v & 90 Volts are available.
