View Full Version : Pneumatic Actuator limit?

01-06-2003, 06:20 PM
I was looking over the rules, but I could not find anything specifying a limit to the amount of pneumatic actuators which are allowed on the robot. I know that we can get 3 for free, but are any more then that allowed?

The restricted hardware list states that you can only add 3 more pneumatic cylinders.

it says any additional are not allowed. so you can only those the 3 that came with the kit (two of which i don't know if anyone got)

You order the last 2 from the custom cylinders order form from the last page of the pneumatics manual.

You can have four acutators. One must be the 1.5" bore, 8" throw provided in the kit. The other 3 can be custom ordered using the order form in the Pneumatics Manual.

The "Restricted Materials" list in the Robot section of the manual says that (in addition to the one provided in the kit) you can use 3 custom actuators.
