3260E_0 - 12V/6.1Kg-cm/73RPM 50:1 DC Gear Motor w/ Encoder


This DC motor has an encoder, a 50:1 gearbox, a rated speed of 73 RPM and rated torque of 6.12 Kg·cm.

Product Description


The 3260E is a 12 volt gear motor, generating 6.12 Kg-cm of torque at 73 RPM. While this motor is small and inexpensive, it is also aggressive- less efficient than the others, but very powerful for its size.

This motor comes equipped with an E4P US Digital Encoder, which keeps track of the motor's rotation, allowing you to control your motor precisely.

Motor Controller and Connection

The 3260E DC motor connects to either of the following controllers:

If you decide to use the 1065, you can connect the encoder directly into its encoder input. If you decide to use the 1064, you'll also need one of the following devices to read your encoder:

You'll need to solder wires to the contacts of the motor in order to connect it to a controller.

Comes packaged with








warning The torque this motor produces when it stalls exceeds the rated strength of the gearbox. This means that stalling or very heavily loading this motor can cause serious damage to the gearbox. To avoid damage, avoid sudden loads or any load higher than the Maximum Strength of Gears spec.
