Thanks for that, 40-Amp Fuse Panel. Ok so now my electrical vocab includes:
40 amp fuse panel
RC (thing with blinky lights!)
switch (which I won’t forget to push this year and rob won’t have to yell at me again at the ruckus)
fans! (ok fine I know they’re victors)
big lego block
So I guess I would be between mechanical and programming, more on the programming side, because I am the electrical team, or about 15/16th of it, and the programming team, and do mechanical jobs to. So I guess I’m just heinz 57.
We’ll need to make sure that vertical board is securely mounted to the tower. This may be more difficult than you anticipate, given that it’ll need to stand off by at least 2 inches and only attach on the sides (the backs of the tower box tubing are where the rollers ride). I guess we can work it out somehow.
What, you mean you didn’t like having to stick your hand down into the guts of the robot and fish around to find anything in the electronics?
On a side note, I read this thread last night and remember seeing your post, but I was so out of it at the time that I didn’t even realize that it was you, or that it was our robot being discussed… :-/
As programming and Electrical mentor for 1523, I must come to the defense of the electronic students. Here is our finished??? board. Yes, wires fly and connectors are trashed. but they are the most important link to the design. Electrons RULE!
I normally work with mechanical but worked with electrical yesterday. They were actually a lot neater than mechanical. It just depends on if the person in charge makes sure everyone cleans up after themselves. and that pic did not look very messy at all. it would take like 30 secs to clean up
