NEW PRODUCT – CD DVD Spindle Motor


What’s this? A record player for ants?? Not at all! This is a CD/DVD Spindle Motor, that thing that’s inside a CD or DVD player, that turns the disc around really fast. These motors have some great benefits that make them easier to use than ‘130’ style DC hobby motors.

  • For one, they’re mostly flat on the end, so you can tape or glue it to a flat surface easily.
  • They are well balanced, don’t vibrate a lot which makes them nice and quiet compared to most other motors (they’re not totally silent)
  • They spin fast, about 3500 RPM at full power – can PWM the motor driver to reduce speed
  • 20 mA free running current, 400mA stalled.
  • The motor is rated at 5.9V max. You can use 3V to 6V DC, the speed and torque may vary
  • They’ve already got a plastic hub on em, so it’s super easy to attach whatever you like

It is a motor, so you’ll need a motor driver to control it. We recommend CRICKIT for easy motor control, but you can also use an Adafruit Motor Shield for ArduinoMotor HAT for PiMotor FeatherWingL293DTB6612 or DRV8833.
