6mm Planetary Gear Motor

Smallest diameter gear motor as thick as a pencil, it is a 6mm diameter coreless gear motor equipped with 4 kinds speed gearboxes. 6mm DC gear motor is smallest type used in lock.


6mm Planetary Gear Motor

Pencil Size Nano Planetary DC Gear Motors

6mm planetary gear motor is one of the most famous tiny gear motors in our production line. A gear motor is a miniature motor that is the same thickness as a pencil. There are four different length options, and the length of the gearbox is different for each one. The gearbox is divided into stages, and the number of stages corresponds to the reduction ratio. This 6mm planetary gear motor is a combination of different motors and a gearboxes. Four gearbox options: 1 gear reduction ratio, 2 gear reduction ratio, 3 gear reduction ratio, 4 gear reduction ratio. 6mm diameter and five length: 9mm, 12mm, 14mm, 15mm, 17mm.

6mm Planetary DC Gear Motor Applications

Small 6mm planetary DC gear motors are compact and efficient motors that are commonly used in various applications, including robotics, medical devices, and consumer electronics. These motors are designed with a planetary gearbox that provides high torque and efficiency in a small package. The gearbox consists of a central sun gear, multiple planet gears, and an outer ring gear, which work together to transmit power and torque to the output shaft.

The small size of these motors makes them ideal for applications where space is limited. They are also lightweight, which makes them suitable for portable devices. Despite their small size, these motors can deliver high torque and speed, which makes them versatile for a wide range of applications.

Standard 6mm Nano Planetary DC Motors are widely used in lock, toy model applications.

How small planetary dc gear motor work in a smart lock?

Small planetary DC gear motors are often used in smart locks to provide the mechanical force necessary to turn the lock mechanism. The gear motor is typically controlled by an electronic circuit that receives input from a key or other authentication device.

When the motor is activated, it rotates a small gear that is connected to the lock mechanism. As the gear rotates, it applies torque to the lock mechanism, which causes the lock to turn and unlock the door. The gear ratio of the motor can be adjusted to provide the necessary amount of torque for the lock mechanism to operate smoothly.

The DC gear motor in the lock operates using electrical energy supplied by a battery or other power source. The motor contains a permanent magnet that is fixed in place, as well as a coil of wire that is wound around an armature. When an electric current is applied to the coil, it creates a magnetic field that interacts with the magnet, causing the armature to rotate.

The rotation of the armature is transferred to the gear train, which increases the torque and reduces the speed of the motor output. This allows the planetary motor to deliver the necessary amount of force to turn the lock mechanism without consuming excessive amounts of power or generating excess heat.

In summary, micro planetary DC gear motors operate by converting electrical energy into mechanical motion, which is then used to turn the lock mechanism in a smart lock. By using a gear train to increase torque and reduce speed, these mini gear motors are able to provide the necessary force to operate the lock efficiently and reliably.
