Re: pic: Another Team 968 Teaser....

I have to ask, where did you get the wire connectors for the SMC double solenoids? I had a hell of a time trying to order some more of those solenoids from a distributor (took me three times to get the correct 12VDC coils and submounts). Unfortunatly, after all was said and done, nothing ever came with those wire connectors to plug into the ends of the solenoid. Soldering works fine, but I'm curious where you found those.

Wiring looks fantastic, by the way! I just brought my wire organizer in here and told him next year, I want THAT.

Re: pic: Another Team 968 Teaser....

You do know that you are allowed to switch the fuse on the spike for the compressor with a 20A Circuit breaker, right? I say this because if that fuse blows, with that much relying on air pressure, you'd be dead. You could probably deal with one or two other things not working, but if your compressor dies, it looks to me that your whole bot is dead.

Re: pic: Another Team 968 Teaser....

Our electrical team looked at this and wanted me to post about this. From their interpretation, you cannot have red, 'hot', wires going to the ground part of the spike. You need black wires. You can get DQed for it. I'd look into it more if I were you.

that would make no sence. what the spike does is alternate which wire is hot. so lets say you have one black and one red. i fwd erd might be hot and black grnd. then in rev black is hot and red is grnd. you would need magic color changing wires to have such a thing.

i did look it up by the way and there is no regulation for the after part of the spike, seeinng as the things connected dont have defined + and - and the output switches back and forth

Ok, thanks, that's what they said, and I'm not on electrical team. Thanks for the clear-up.

Re: pic: Another Team 968 Teaser....

I am aware of the 30 amp breaker. It was temporary as we were wiring up the electronics, it will be swapped before we power anything up, thanks for pointing it out though

And as for the solenoid wires, we purchased ours through motion industries. We simply gave them the part number of the solenoid valve and they told us the part number of the wire. ( if you need it I can look it up for you) They were available at almost all of their warehouses, as the wires are compatible with a lot of SMC valves.

THanks for the feedback!

Beautiful job, just amazing. I looked at this, and my only thought was "I can't wait to see the REST of the robot!"

Re: pic: Another Team 968 Teaser....

Where did you get the manifold for the solonoids?
We are using four double solonoids and they are all connected by individual hoses. A manifild would be much simpler and more space efficient.

Looks incriediable!

Good luck!

11 cylinders!?!?! I can guess what 6 or 7 of them are for but that's about it. I cannot possibly wait another 38 hours to see this thing. But I guess I will have to. You are going to Chatsworth right?

Re: pic: Another Team 968 Teaser....

The solenoid manifold is available through SMC. We purchased ours through motion industries.

11 pistons... I will try to break it down in a fairly subtle manner. 2 for wings, 2 for center lift, 2 for rear lift, 2 for shifting , 1 for ball grabber, 2 for elev release.

That should hold you off until sunday. We might not be fully functional as we just realized that our reduction for the arm is not sufficient... so we are trying to throw together a quick solution before sunday. See you then.
