Short -direction stall torques for the HG16-030AA (30:1 ratio at 6V) reach 11oz-in. and the HG16-240AC exceed 56.0 oz-in. The optional miniature encoder allows users to position the motor in increments of 75, 150, 160, and 200 counts per revolution. No-load speeds range from 390 rpm in 30:1 models and down to 60 rpm in 240:1 models. Typical applications include medical equipment, printers, and security cameras.
