This years game seems like another winner! I wanted to share with the forum the new products at Armabot this year. Usually I would have done this pre-kickoff but there was a question on weather or not the Sweep LIDAR would be legal because of it’s internal motor. Well, good news, it found a home in the R32 motor rules, down at the bottom in the sensor section. The LIDAR units are being assembled and should be available soon.
The “Bad Boys” are back (high five billbo911). Thanks to everyone giving good feedback last year and the success we had, we redesigned the RS7 Encoder to be a 30% glass filled ABS injection molded housing instead of a rapid prototype. We also worked on our supply chain to get enough of these for every team, and gave you a voucher (see KoP book) to try one free, just a $5-7 domestic shipping fee (international varies). Keep in mind these only attach to the 775pro motor. Also to help out the newer teams, one of our sponsored team’s students wrote a great a tutorial on how to get PID working with a Talon SRX in a CAN setup, check it out.
Last but not least, have you ever had issues fitting the Versaplanetary as it gets longer and longer the more goodies you attach to it? Well fold that thing in half! The new Armabelt does just that with a few ratio options thrown in. Basically it allows a 775pro motor to mounted to the side with a GT2 belt and a couple pulleys getting power to the input side of the gearbox. At the last minute we were able to make it also compatible with the new V2 Versaplanetary.
Best wishes to all the teams competing this year!
