More info


This gearmotor consists of a low-power, 6 V brushed DC motor combined with a 46,85:1 metal spur gearbox, and it has an integrated 48 CPR quadrature encoder on the motor shaft. The gearmotor is cylindrical, with a diameter just under 25 mm, and the D-shaped output shaft is 4 mm in diameter and extends 12.5 mm from the face plate of the gearbox.


  • Supply voltage: 6 V
  • Gear ratio: 46,85:1
  • Speed: 120 RPM
  • Maximum torque: 4,7 kg*cm
  • Minimum current consumption: 0,25 A
  • Maximum current consumption: 2,4 A
  • Diameter: 39 mm
  • Length: 67 mm
  • Weight: 101 g
Note: Stalling or overloading gearmotors can greatly decrease their lifetimes and even result in immediate damage. For these gearboxes, the recommended upper limit for instantaneous torque is 15 kg-cm (200 oz-in); we strongly advise keeping applied loads well under this limit. Stalls can also result in rapid (potentially on the order of a second) thermal damage to the motor windings and brushes, especially for the versions that use high-power (HP) motors; a general recommendation for brushed DC motor operation is 25% or less of the stall current.

Supply voltage

Pololu 25D motors are available in two versions with the recommended voltage of 6 V and 12 V. These motors differ in power and current consumption. The power of LP motors in the 6 V and 12 V versions differs slightly, and the current consumed by the 12 V LP motors is more than half that of the 6 V LP motors. The power of the HP 12 V motors is noticeably greater than the HP 6 V, so the difference in the consumed current is not as big as in LP engines. It is possible to power the motors with a lower or higher voltage, but it is associated with lower power or a shorter life of the motors, respectively.

Dimensions and weight

All motors have the same dimensions. Depending on the gear ratio, the gears differ in length, as shown in the technical drawing below. The metal gear housing has two tapped holes for M3 screws. The gearmotors weigh from 60 g to 110 g depending on the gear size.

Dimensions of 25D motors in version with encoders (units in mm).
Dimensions of 25D motors without encoders (units in mm).
Do not screw too far into the mounting holes as the screws can hit the gears. We recommend screwing no more than 6 mm into the M3 mounting holes.

Magnetic encoder

All Pololu 25D gearmotors are available in versions with a magnetic encoder and without an encoder. The encoder is mounted on an additional shaft on the opposite side of the main shaft. The shaft on which the encoder is mounted is led directly from the motor (without gear), which allows the installation of the encoder which works much more accurately than if it was mounted on the shaft behind the gear. The use of an encoder allows to determine the speed and position of the motor shaft and to apply these values in the PID controller feedback loop.

Using the encoder

A two-channel Hall effect encoder is used to sense the rotation of a magnetic disk on a rear protrusion of the motor shaft. The quadrature encoder provides a resolution of 48 counts per revolution of the motor shaft when counting both edges of both channels. To compute the counts per revolution of the gearbox output, multiply the gear ratio by 48. The motor/encoder has six color-coded, 8″ (20 cm) leads terminated by a 1×6 female header with a 0.1″ pitch, as shown in the main product picture. This header works with standard 0.1″ male headers and our male jumper and precrimped wires. If this header is not convenient for your application, you can pull the crimped wires out of the header or cut the header off. The following table describes the wire functions.

The 4 mm diameter gearbox output shaft works with Pololu universal aluminum mounting hub for 4mm shafts, which can be used to mount our larger Pololu wheels (60mm-, 70mm-, 80mm-, and 90mm-diameter) or custom wheels and mechanisms to the gearmotor’s output shaft as shown in the left picture below. Alternatively, you could use our 4mm scooter wheel adapter to mount many common scooter, skateboard, and inline skate wheels to the gearmotor’s output shaft as shown in the right picture below.

The gearmotor face plate has two mounting holes threaded for M2.5 screws, and you can use our custom-designed 20D mm metal gearmotor bracket (shown in the left picture below) to mount the gearmotor to your project via these mounting holes and the screws that come with the bracket.

Motor controllers

We have a number of motor controllers and motor drivers that work with these 20D mm metal gearmotors. In particular, we recommend MC33296-based motor drivers, for which we have basic single and dual carriers and a dual-channel shield for Arduino.

Types and parameters of 25D Pololu engines:

Our offer includes motors with gear ratios from 4.4: 1 to 499: 1, with a rated voltage of 6 V and 12 V. All variants of motors with gears are available with and without a magnetic encoder. In addition, gearedless encoder motors are available to fit gears from the rest of the 25D motors.
