The 3265 is a 12 volt gear motor, generating 0.54 Kg-cm of torque at 670 RPM. It's a standard-sized motor suitable for low-torque, high-speed applications. Since this motor has a lower power output for its size, you can expect it to have a longer lifespan than other motors.

The planetary gearbox on this motor is more sophisticated than a typical spur gearbox and will provide greater efficiency, higher torque, and quieter motor operation.

The rear shaft optical encoder for this motor was obsoleted by the manufacturer. The price has been discounted accordingly. This motor is best for applications not requiring an encoder.

Connection

This motor can be controlled by a DC motor controller. You can find a list of suitable controllers on the Connection & Compatibility tab.

DC Motor Controllers

DC motors can be simply connected to a power supply according to their rated voltage in order to make them run, but if you want to have control over direction, velocity, and acceleration in real-time, you'll need to use a motor controller. In order to connect this motor to a controller, you can connect the wires to the motor terminal on the controller. Don't worry about wiring the motor backwards; doing so will only reverse the direction of rotation.

Pulleys and Sprockets

If you're using this motor to drive a rotary system that requires a lot of torque, you may be interested in pulleys and sprockets. By using a two pulleys or sprockets of different sizes, you can increase the gear ratio of the motor. Pulleys and sprockets can also be used to transmit the motor's rotation over a long distance. For more guidance on building a transmission system, visit our Rotary Motion Primer. Here is a list of our 8mm bore pulleys and sprockets:

Rotary Bearings

Systems with heavy loads or pulley/sprocket assemblies often put a lot of sideways strain on the motor shaft. If you're using this motor to drive such a system, you can use rotary bearings to protect the motor:
