Robot DC Gearhead Motor - 6v 180rpm w/ Encoder

The Trossen Engineering team goes through a lot of motors, so we have pretty high expectations of any motors we want to put in a robot. Well our new Robot DC Gearhead Motors w/ Encoder meet and blow past those expectations!

These motors are perfect for robots weighing 2-5 lbs, and the RPM allows them to pair perfectly with 3-4″ Wheels. Each of our motors have an integrated encoder to help calculate odometry data so these motors will help get your robotic rover up and running in no time!

Check out the video to see one of our test ‘bots zipping around the warehouse.

Weekend at Trossen – Episode 1

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

Life is busy here at Trossen Robotics. Between filling orders, sourcing/posting new products and customer service calls, we’re constantly working on something. This flurry of activity often leaves us with no time to do our favorite thing – engineer new kits and products. But have no fear, that won’t stop us from designing, building and testing new kits – we just have to wait for the weekend.

In this new series you’ll get a chance to see the process behind the products and get some insight to how we work here at Trossen Robotics. This week we’ll take a look at the soon to be released Motor & Wheel Starter Kit.

Shop Talk: Motor Testing Rigs

Monday, August 15th, 2011

Matt (that’s me) goes over how we have set up some motor testing we have done around here. If you are like us and have no patience and want to play with new motors right away here is how to do it. These setups are also good for manual control of stationary motors for various needs.
