The V5 Smart Motor is more than twice as powerful as the 2-Wire Motor 393, and puts an integrated encoder and a motor controller into one compact package. Customise speed and torque with interchangeable gear cartridges.
Use the built-in encoder to track a robot's rotational position and velocity
Ships with the standard gear cartridge of 18:1 (200 RPM)
Cartridges for 36:1 (100 RPM) & 6:1 (600 RPM) are available separately
Compatible with both high-strength (1/4") and standard (1/8") VEX V5 shafts
Mechanisms such as flywheels and arms do not need large external gear ratios when the driving motor is already outputting a targeted output speed or torque. Therefore, changing internal gear ratios to fit specific needs allows more efficient and compact mechanisms to be designed. The 6:1 cartridge is ideal for:
Low torque, high speed. Best used for intake rollers, flywheels, or other fast moving mechanisms
