Climb actuator design and numerical simulation
This spreadsheet provides the ability to trade off design points for a climbing actuator design.
This spreadsheet provides the ability to analyze most climbing solutions. The user can specify the motor, the quantity, and the components in the gear train. This work assumes a worm drive final reduction.
Actual test data is provided to correlate to the distributed configuration.
Testing was also performed to characterize the mechanism drag.
Due to the significant change in motor speeds, this spreadsheet will not work well with the 775pro motor selection.
