A DC motor is not the same as a “gear motor” – a “gear motor” may be an AC or DC motor coupled with a gearbox or transmission. A gear motor adds mechanical gears to alter the speed/torque of the motor for an application. Usually such an addition is to reduce speed and increase torque.

There are many differences between AC and DC motors. The most obvious difference is the type of current each motor turns into energy, alternating current in the case of AC motors, and direct current in the case of DC motors.
The main difference between the normal DC motor and a geared DC motor is … In case geared DC motor according to the teeth of the gear the torque of the motor shaft can be varied where as in Normal DC motor to change the torque the field control is required.
1 The most basic difference is the power source. A.C. motors are powered from alternating current (A.C.) while D.C. motors are powered from direct current (D.C.), such as batteries, D.C. power supplies or an AC-to-DC power converter.
DC and AC motors have differing means of speed control. While DC motors are controlled by varying the armature winding’s current, AC motors simply vary the frequency. An induction motor and a synchronous motor are two types of AC motors. An induction motor uses a magnetic field on a rotor that is created by an induced current.
A servo motor is an entirely different story. The servo motor is actually an assembly of four things: a normal DC motor, a gear reduction unit, a position-sensing device (usually a potentiometer—a volume control knob), and a control circuit.
Need a motor for your project, but not sure which type to get? We stock a few different varieties on ModMyPi, so hopefully this rundown on the difference between DC, Servo and Stepper Motors will help you decide! DC Motors. DC (Direct Current) Motors are …
Brushed DC Motors Vs. Brushless DC Motors. By Motion Control Online Marketing Team POSTED 01/24/2017. Any motion control expert should understand the difference between brushed and brushless DC motors.
Brush DC Motors Around since the late 1800s, dc brush motors are one of the simplest types of motors. Sans the dc supply or battery required for operation, a typical brush dc motor consists of an armature (a.k.a., rotor), a commutator, brushes, an axle, and a field magnet (see “Brushed DC Motor Fundamentals”). 1.
