Miniature vibration motor measuring only 12mm long x 6mm diameter. Coreless motor design, rated at 3V nominal.
These motors are often used for silent alert functions in mobile phones and are also used in applications within tools, robotics, control sticks and various alert functions in hand held equipment.
Pre-wired with red & black leads 90mm.
|Dimensions:||L: 12mm. Diameter: 6mm|
|Rated speed:||14000 RPM (2000 RPM)|
|Starting voltage:||1.7V max|
|Stall current:||140mA max|
These vibrobots were sent in by James Ratcliffe of Milton Abbey School following a recent year 8 taster activity. Rather than provide students with our complete vibrobug kit or fizzbit module, they got a coin cell power board kit and a vibrating motor, and got to work on their own designs.

could i use this to make a cymatics viewer/ Chladni plate? Thank you Nadolig Llawen x

Hello Emily, From my understanding a cymatics viewer is created using a sound waves passed through a viable medium, this blog might help clarify what is required, http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-Sound-Come-Alive-Cymatics/
if we pewter cast some small weights (say 20 / 25 mm in diameter ) and araldited them on to the front of the motor would it still spin ? This would allow the kids an additional skill ... the alternative is to buy a normal small (3V) motor to fix to and 2 x AA switched battery box (like i did when I made these from steel)... any one done this / any ideas? cheers Simon

These motors don’t have a lot of torque, they are used just for creating a vibration. As such with weight applied to them they wouldn’t spin, you would need to use a motor that has a sensible torque rating.
Will this work from an output pin on a 3.3v or 5v Arduino? It's rated at 75mA but an output pin on an Arduino is 20mA

Unfortunately you wouldn’t be able to run this motor from an Arduino, as the motor will try to draw 75mA and would likely damage the Arduino.
does anyone if the front of the motor comes off?

No the front of the motor isn't removable.
I am in need of 15 3v vibration motors by June 2. Can these arrive in long beach ms in time and at what cost. Thank you

We currently have these in stock, so if we received the order before 3pm we would dispatch the goods the same day. The estimated time for deliveries to America is around 4-5 working days, however this may change due to the item being cleared through customs. To work out a cost for the items and shipping you can use the ‘estimate shipping and VAT’ section within the shopping cart. Just place the items you wish to purchase into the cart and then fill in the shipping details to obtain a quote.
