240 Encoded Motor Series

Oct. 24, 2020

AM Equipment, a leading provider of DC-based motion control systems has introduced a new encoded version of its 240 Series DC gear motor suitable for precision actuation applications.


The motor has an integrated two-channel encoder that uses a 5-volt signal to report speed, direction, and incremental position. This allows precise control of movement in applications where motion can be interrupted and rapid recovery is required. The encoded 240 series is ideal for outdoor applications that require a reliable high-torque motor. This could include applications such as vocational trucks, construction, agricultural equipment, solar energy farms, and robots. The motor’s low power draw make it particularly suited to battery-powered applications where the time between charging can be extended.

  • 12V input; 40 Nm output 
  • Bidirectional, single speed.
  • Encoder resolution of 520 pulses per output revolution.
  • Sealed connectors to allow safe operation in dirty environments.
  • Longer brush length and improved compound for longer brush life.
  • Two standard output shaft options:
    • 11 mm diameter with 40 mm flat and
    • 12 mm diameter with 4 mm wide keyway and snap ring groove.
    • Custom shafts are also available.
