Midwest Motion Products, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of a new DC Gear Motor with integrated optical encoder, the Model No. MMP TM40-285D-24V GP42-025 EC-032. This gear motor measures just 1.65” in diameter, by 5.95” long and has a keyed output shaft of 8mm diameter by 25mm long. Easy mounting is accomplished with 4 “face mount” M4 threaded holes, equally spaced on a 36mm Dia. B.C. The featured encoder is a 2 Channel, 32 PPR, 5V ttl device, with an index pulse. The output of this fully reversible gearmotor is rated for 9 Lb. In. (1 Nm) torque, at 169 RPM. Despite its compact size, and weight of approximately 1.75 pounds, it’s an efficient design, requiring just 1.2 Amps at 24 Volts DC to generate its full load torque. That translates into long life battery charge, very low noise operation and lower costs for related drive electronics. Motor windings for 12V, 18V, 28V, 36V, 42V, and 48 Volts DC are available. With the closed REC version, this unique design is rated at an “IP 54” protection level for operation in harsh environments. Variable Speed control can be accomplished with our fully compatible Speed Controls, Model MMP 25A-24V, or MMP 20A-24V-RSP.
