Product Overview:
The PicoBox gearboxes are designed specifically for FIRST Tech Challenge teams. These highly configurable gearboxes are a robust solution for teams to make fine adjustments to the output speed and torque of drivetrains, mechanisms and more. All PicoBox gearboxes are designed to work with other building systems that FIRST Tech Challenge teams are familiar with, because they are built to work around a base 16mm center-to-center hole pattern. The flanges on the PicoBox gearboxes are reversible while maintaining a base 16mm hole pattern.

The PicoBox MEO is a single reduction, single motor input gearbox that utilizes steel 32DP gears. This gearbox accepts one NeveRest 3.7 motor as it's input, and has a robust steel 6mm D shaft for it's output.

The MEO is named after Mid Earth Orbit. Medium Earth orbits range in altitude from 2,000 km (1,240 miles) to just below geosynchronous orbit at 35,786 kilometers (22,236 mi). Also known as an intermediate circular orbit. These are "most commonly at 20,200 kilometers (12,600 mi), or 20,650 kilometers (12,830 mi), with an orbital period of 12 hours.

Motor Input:
The PicoBox Solo is not compatible with the NeveRest Motor Only (am-3104) or the NeveRest Classic series of gearmotors.
The PicoBox MEO is designed specifically for the NeveRest Orbital series of gearmotors.

Product Usage:
All AndyMark gearboxes require grease for proper operation and long life. We suggest using our red tacky grease, am-2768. We also encourage that the user powers the gearbox continuously for 30 minutes without grease to allow the gear teeth to wear in. While we do design with short runtimes in mind, this 'run in' period for smooth gearbox operation, is recommended. Once this is completed, thorough grease of the gear teeth periodically to ensure smooth operation.

Individual Components that make up this Assembly:
The PicoBox MEO does not include a NeveRest Orbital Gearmotor.
