DC Motor - Model 250

Download PDF Version

The 250 motor is a permanent magnet gearmotor utilizing a cylindrical barium ferrite 2 pole field magnet. Carbon brushes provide long life, quiet operation and low starting voltage. The rotor is supported by permanently lubricated sintered bronze bearings. The 250 motor is availble in a wide range of speeds and is an excellent choice for applications requiring reliability and quiet operation at low cost.

Rated Torque

Curves below typify rated torque outputs for standard 12 and 24 volt motors. Values may vary ±15% and are to be used only as a guide to determine available performance.


Rated Voltage Operating Voltage
12 VDC 9-18 volts
24 VDC 19-30 volts


Current Draw

Voltage Rated Load No Load
12 VDC 470mA 80mA
24 VDC 240mA 50mA


Current draw may be higher in certain units depending on the type and amount of lubrication used in the gear trains.

Ambient Operating Temp. Range
-20°C to +60°C

Permanently lubricated. Special lubricants available for operation under -20°C...consult factory (-40°C min.)

Direction of Rotation
DC Motors may be operated in either direction depending on polarity as applied to the terminals. Direction of rotation of the output shaft with respect to polarity markings of the terminals will depend upon the number of gear reductions used in the gear train. Instantaneous reversing is not recommended in order to provide maximum brush life. Bi-directional DC Motors available.

Output Shaft Options Available

Dielectric and Insulation Resistance
Dielectric: 1000 volts RMS for one minute between terminals and case.
Insulation Resistance: 10 megohm minimum measured with 500 VDC applied.

The 200 motor is availble with an integrally assembled radio frequency filter to supress RF noise and enhance brush life.
