    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: 1102 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)

    NeveRest Motor REV Expansion Hub Encoder Cable

    #am-3926a
    $5.25

    This is the cable designed for the encoder that is pre-attached to the NeveRest Series of motors and gearmotors. It has a connector on the opposite end to directly interface with the REV Expansion Hub or the REV Control Hub.

     

    2019 Update:

    The 'a' version of this cable as the encoder channels swapped so that the encoder counts in the same direction as the output shaft spins. This simplifies the usage of the encoder with the various programming languages for FTC!

    Specifications

    • Length: 20 in.

    485 Servo Pack

    #39197
    $51.33

    485 Servo Pack  is one of the best choices for rugged robotic applications. This servo’s great performance and durability are a combination of karbonite gears, high-performance circuitry, and a ball bearing-supported output shaft. Karbonite gearing is nearly four times stronger than nylon gears and provides virtually wear-free performance. Standard rotational range is 90 degrees, but it can be operated to 180 degrees with controllers capable of generating a pulse range from 600 usec to 2400 usec. Produces nearly 84 oz-in of torque power.

    NeveRest Classic 40 Gearmotor, JST-VH-2 Connector

    #am-2964b
    $38.95

    The NeveRest 40 is a gearmotor with an attached encoder. The output shaft geometry and the gearbox housing diameter is similar to what FTC teams are familiar with. The shaft is a 6 mm D and the gearbox housing is 37 mm diameter.

    FIRST Legality:

    • According to the FIRST Tech Challenge Game Manual Part 1, Rule RE10, this is legal for the 2020-2021 FTC Game. 
    • According to the FIRST Robotics Challenge Game Manual, Rule R27, this is legal for the 2020-2021 FRC Game as it uses the NeveRest am-3104 motor.

    Encoder:
    There is an encoder mounted to the backside of this motor. It is a 7 pulse per revolution (ppr), hall effect encoder. Since the motor's gearbox has a 40:1 reduction, then the NeverRest 40 output shaft provides 280 ppr.
