    Hi, is there a really low rpm small motor?

    I need something less than 0.3 rpm, is there something like 0.01?

    I have never seen those, so it would be very useful to know if there is any.

    Thanks

    Hi Rover233!

    Well, geared motors should be available in many flavors, including very low RPM.
    also Stepping motors allow you any RPM!
    Any application in mind?

    Yes, there are many kinds -- they are typically synchronous motors with gears to reduce the output rpm. The first place I'd look for one is in those mechanical timers that turn line voltage loads on and off over a 24 hour period. The second place is in home appliances; many that I have taken apart have these small motors in them for various purposes.

    Hi,

    I was thinking about mounting a camera on it, setting the camera to timelapse mode and get motion timelapse video from the pictures taken. Thank you for suggestions

    You would want a stepper motor + gearing to go that low.
