    NeveRest Orbital Gearmotor (Gear Ratio: 50.9 to 1) JST-VH-2 Connector

    The NeveRest Orbital gearmotor is a robust planetary gearmotor designed for FTC. With many ratios to choose from you can find the right motor for you, from a fast spinning intake to a high reduction arm, all are possible with NeveRest Orbitals. They have a pre-installed encoder and an output shaft directly in the center of the output face. The shaft is a 6 mm D and the gearbox housing is 37 mm in diameter.

    MFR Part #: am-4609b
    $42.90
    Availability: 2 in stock

    The power cable which feeds into the black encoder housing has two different options that are already crimped to the end of the cable. 

    1. JST-VH-2 connectors: this option plugs directly into the FIRST Tech Challenge REV Controller
    2. Anderson Powerpole 15A connectors: This is another popular connector with FTC and FRC teams.

    FIRST Legality:

    • According to the FIRST Tech Challenge Game Manual, all versions of the NeveRest motor are legal in FTC.
    • According to the FIRST Robotics Competition Game Manual, all versions of the NeveRest motor are legal in FRC as it uses the NeveRest am-3104 motor.

    Usage:

    • PicoBox LEO (am-3614). This gearbox is used for creating chain drives for mechanisms like arms.
    • PicoBox GEO (am-3616). This gearbox combines two NeveRest Orbital motors into a single output shaft allowing for combined power at a low ratio.
    • PicoBox MEO (am-3615). This gearbox accepts one NeveRest motor and allows for gear changing through PicoBox gearing.

    Encoder:
    There is an encoder mounted to the backside of this motor. It is a 7 pulse per revolution (PPR), hall effect encoder. Multiply the ratio by 7 to get the PPR of the output shaft. For example the NeverRest 3.7 output shaft provides 25.9 PPR.

    Encoder Cable Options:
    NeveRest motors do not come with an encoder cable as we offer 3 cable options:

    am-3926a allows you to connect the encoder directly to the FIRST Tech Challenge REV Controller.

    am-2992 has the 4 encoder pins joined in one housing using standard 0.1" spacing. am-2993 allows you to break out the 4 pins separately if you need them in a different order.

    Working with the Encoders:

    If you need the output shaft to be a 1/2" Hex, check out the 6 mm D to 0.5 in. Hex-Shaft Adapter (am-3744a)
