Innovation First Site Down

ok, i’m sitting here trying to get to the innovationfirst.com site, and it’s not working. i’ve heard that there was a MS SQL worm, and that Dallas was the worst hit, and from what i remember, Innovation First is in Texas, but i’m not sure how far from Dallas.

if anyone has the current OI documentation saved, could you please point me to it? we’re trying to make a competition port dongle to control the robot in autonomous mode, but well, it’s hard when you don’t have a pinout (even a partial one).

i’m sorry if this has been covered tons of other places, but anything i’ve found is for last year’s OI, not documenting the autonomous pin.

Yeah, Greenville (where IFI is located) is about 50 miles away from Dallas …

I was just ready to sumbit a fairlylarge order from them and I lost it. :frowning:

Here you go, hope it helps. :smiley:

The innovation FIRST Site is down, and i am in desperate need of the pin-guides for both the OI input ports, and the robot controller digital input port. If anyone has these, PLEASE HELP!

thank you from team 612

There’s a picture of the digital pinout in the RC in the bottom, the OI Port is explained below:

In the four ports, it works like that:

Pin 1 +5V Aux (Fuse F2) [2,3]
Pin 2 Joystick Trigger Switch
Pin 3 X-Axis
Pin 4 Ground
Pin 5 – See below –
Pin 6 Y-Axis
Pin 7 Joystick Thumb Switch
Pin 8 – See below –
Pin 9 – See below –
Pin 10 Aux Switch1
Pin 11 Aux Analog
Pin 12 Ground
Pin 13 Wheel
Pin 14 Aux Switch2
Pin 15 – See below –

Below - :smiley: Pins 5, 8, 9 and 15 are different for each port. For ports 1 and 3, they work as feedback LED’s. For ports 2 and 4, they are the same as some switches in port 1 and 3. For example, pin 5 in port 2 is the same as pin 2 in port 3 (p3_sw_trig). If you need the pinout for those too, ask here.

I’ve (temporarily) put a copy of the RC Ref here:

and a copy of the OI Ref here:

These are sitting on my home server, where I have limited (128Kb/s) outgoing bandwidth. Please don’t download it unless you really need it. In a few hours you should be able to get all of the files from here:

http://www.cvhsrobotics.org/resources.htm.

The page works, but the links won’t because my work server is currently down.

I just brought my work server back up, so if you need documentation, I probably have it cached here:

http://www.cvhsrobotics.org/resources.htm

Now back to our regularly scheduled 'bot building…

I think that worm got my internet service provider on Saturday. I couldnt get on the entire day. “Invalid user name and password” “Invalid user name and password”. It finally worked at 1:00am on Sunday.
