Order up to 20 new V5 Smart Motors (per trade-in) at the same time as your V5 System Bundle Trade-In. Or, if you don't purchase any discounted motors now, you will receive a coupon with your new V5 System Bundle when it ships to order motors later (coupon valid until 31 July 2019).

The V5 Smart Motor is more than twice as powerful as the 2-Wire Motor 393, and puts an integrated encoder and a motor controller into one compact package. Customize speed and torque with interchangeable gear cartridges.

  • Use the built-in encoder to track a robot's rotational position and velocity
  • Ships with the standard gear cartridge of 18:1 (200 RPM)
  • Cartridges for 36:1 (100 RPM) & 6:1 (600 RPM) are coming soon
  • Compatible with both regular and high-strength EDR shaft sizes


Using the new method of power management, the V5 Smart Motors will always give consistent performance The motor runs at a slightly lower voltage than the batteries minimum voltage, and the motor's power is accurately controlled to +/-1%. This means the motor will perform the same for every match and every autonomous run regardless of battery charge or motor temperature.

Gear Options

Mechanisms such as flywheels and arms do not need large external gear ratios when the driving motor is already outputting a targeted output speed or torque. Therefore, changing internal gear ratios to fit specific needs allows more efficient and compact mechanisms to be designed. Use the clear window of the V5 Smart Motor to identify one of three user-changeable colored gear cartridges:

  • 36:1 (100 RPM) - High torque, low speed. Great for robot arms and lifting heavy objects
  • 18:1 (200 RPM) - Standard gear ratio for drive train applications
  • 6:1 (600 RPM) - Low torque, high speed. Best used for intake rollers, flywheels, or other fast moving mechanisms


  • (1) V5 Smart Motor with 18:1 (200 RPM) Cartridge
  • (2) 8-32 x 0.250" Star Drive Screws
  • (2) 8-32 x 0.375" Star Drive Screws

V5 Components are expected to ship in August 2018
