Hey Everyone, its that time of the year again for REV to announce new products, update people on availability and get you ready for the season. We have a number of new things as part of REV ION Phase 2, we are excited to announce today. I will keep this thread updated starting today through the FRC season to keep you up to date.
A tapped #10-32 hole was added to the end of the shaft, allowing teams to retain pinions on the shaft without the need for an external retaining ring.
A tapped #10-32 hole was added to the back housing of the motor. When a #10-32 x 3/8in long socket head screw is inserted into this hole and tightened finger tight, this screw supports the internal shaft while pressing pinions, making it no longer necessary to remove the motor housing to press pinions (instructions coming soon).
Additional holes were added to the front face of the motor, which allows for more flexibility in orientation when mounting the motor.
We have just gone back into stock for power distribution hub and pneumatic hub. This is just batch 1, there will be more coming before the end of the year if you don’t get them during this batch. We are limiting teams to 2 units, until we get all of our inventory for the season.
Just saw the Control System parts come in stock at the Canadian site, which is awesome! I did notice however there doesn’t appear to be an order limit on that site (just tried adding 45 PDH’s to my cart and it seemed to go through). Is this intentional?
That’s why I’m asking. I’m worried about some teams trying to buy more than 2 (my team isn’t quite ready to order yet), and us not being able to get any down the road because all the inventory is gone.
I suppose I didn’t ask that question right. If the recommended 3/8 socket head 10-32 is threaded into that back hole, when the shaft is spun does the bolt spin with it? I do not know how the NEO is built internally, so I cannot picture where the bolt is threaded into.
