We are using them on our elevator, which is also our climber. We are gonna lift 3 robots to level 3, and we are also doing a 4 hatch panel auto using 4 limelight cameras (one for each side of our robot). We also are doing 6 wheel swerve this year. This is our year my dudes.
I literally can’t believe you’re being serious. If you are, what compressor and air storage tanks are you planning on using? I’d have to imagine lifting 3 robots requires at least maybe around 400 lb-ft of work, which means your cylinders have to deliver at least 100 lbs of force. That’s around a 2 in^2 bore at 60 psi. For a mechanism (elevator) that needs to actuate up and down many times a match, I’m confused about how you will supply these cylinders.
As a compressor, you’d need a legal compressor, not a legal motor. Let’s see, 21 gallons at 120 psi is about 16 or 17 cubic feet at ambient. Compressor max is 1.1 scfm. Don’t drain the tank between matches!
Pretty sure that’s illegal. All the air on the robot has to come from its one legal compressor (which I’m pretty sure has to be a COTS pneumatic component) and the compressor can’t deliver more than 1.1 cfm.
