What are the continuous values for your motors?

The stall torque and no-load speed are clearly visible in your datasheets, but what are the values (nominal/continuous/recommended) I can run them at for longer periods of time?
Is 20% of the stall values a good rule of thumb?

I’m referring to the Micro Metal Gearmotors, 20D gearmotors, 25D gearmotors and 37D gearmotors.


Following your proposed rule of thumb would probably be fine; it is actually a little more conservative than what we generally recommend. The recommendation we include on the product pages for our brushed DC metal gearmotors is to operate at or below 25% of stall current.
