99:1 Metal Gearmotor 25Dx54L mm HP with 48 CPR Encoder

via Pololu - New Products

This cylindrical, 2.62" x 0.98" x 0.98" gearmotor uses a brushed DC motor with extra-strong magnets and a 98.78:1 metal gearbox to deliver a lot of power in a relatively small package. It has an integrated 48 CPR quadrature encoder on the motor shaft, which provides 4741 counts per revolution of the gearbox’s output shaft. These units have a 0.315"-long, 4 mm-diameter D-shaped output shaft. We also carry a version of this gearmotor without an encoder.

Key specs at 6 V: 100 RPM and 450 mA free-run, 160 oz-in (11.5 kg-cm) and 6 A stall.

Pololu 9V, 2.5A Step-Down Voltage Regulator D24V25F9

via Pololu - New Products

This small synchronous switching step-down (or buck) regulator takes an input voltage of up to 38 V and efficiently reduces it to 9 V. The board measures only 0.7″ × 0.7″, but it allows a typical continuous output current of up to 2.5 A. Typical efficiencies of 85% to 95% make this regulator well suited for powering moderate loads like sensors or small motors. High efficiencies are maintained at light loads by dynamically changing the switching frequency, and an optional shutdown pin enables a low-power state with a current draw of a few hundred microamps.
