RS Pro 12 V DC Geared Motor, 35mm

From RS Pro, this DC geared motor is ideal for low speed applications that require high starting torque. The brushed motor ensure a low cost and simplified design, while offering versatility and reliability.

A robust unit with a high quality five pole motor, this DC motor has a spur gearbox, with bronze output bearings that facilitate high torque transfer from the motor through the gearbox.

The gear motor is mounted to a steel bracket, for easy and secure installation, and is designed for most low voltage applications, providing a 3948 rpm no-load speed.

Features and Benefits

• 12 V dc Supply Voltage
• Sintered bronze bearings
• Spur gear head


DC geared motors are highly versatile, and are used in many appliances and technologies. Whether you're a hobbyist or industrial manufacturer, DC electric motors can be used to provide any number of practical solutions, and are often used in;

• Power tools
• Water pumps
• Camera Systems
• Adjusting devices
• Robotics
• Fans

What's the Difference Between Brushed and Brushless DC Motors?

Electric motors that use a brush to deliver current to the motor windings have a simpler construction than their brushless equivalents, and are therefore usually lower in cost. They are also able to be wired directly to a DC power source, and have no need for an encoder or drive, which results in more simplified wiring options.

Unfortunately, wear and tear on the brush element means a shorter service life and less efficiency. They are also typically noisier than brushless DC motors.
