Scurry Motor for 80850S/80850MS Rat Wheel

Model 80851B


Add this motor option to Legacy or Scurry Rat Activity Wheels for forced exercise / walking or sleep deprivation studies.


The Activity Wheel Motor Drive Model 80851B is designed to offer forced wheel running or sleep deprivation protocols with the standard Scurry Rat Activity Wheel Model 80850S, Model 80850MS Narrow Gap Rat/Mouse Activity Wheel or large Rat Activity Wheel Model 80850LS. It is also compatible with the Legacy (AWM) versions of these wheels.  The flexibility and ease of use of this design will allow for simple transition between a forced and free running system. The 80851B motor drive is  controlled with the 86100M Motor Interface and the Scurry Software Model 86165.  The Model 86115 Scurry Sensor/Counter or Model 86118 Scurry Universal Counter (Legacy Wheels) is still required for voluntary running data collection as well as increased resolution in some scheduled events.


  • Easy changeover between forced and free running
  • Low friction Rulon bearings

  • Uses a non-slip drive belt for forced activity
