Product Overview:
As of Summer 2016, ready for the 2017 FRC build season the Swerve and Steer module has had a number of improvements. The absolute encoder, am-3308 now has mounting locations to give a 1:1 gear ratio to the module via the 40 tooth encoder gear for easier software control. Additionally the 12 tooth CIM pinion/drive shaft now has a wider slot to allow for a 2mm key to lock the shaft to the motor.

The Swerve and Steer module is an all-in-one swerve gearbox AND steering module. The wheel propulsion is powered by a CIM Motor, while the steering torque is managed by a PG71 gearmotor. Both of these motors are mounted to a main motor plate, which can easily be mounted to extrusion frame or other structure.

The PG71 has an encoder on the back side of the 775 motor, which can help keep track of the steering location. In order to use this method of closed-loop encoder tracking, use a 3/16" allen wrench to ensure that the motor plate, bearing plate, and gear late are all aligned before operation. Alternatively, there is a location to mount an absolute encoder (this absolute is not included). Both motors are included in the low price. This module is shipped fully assembled.

Almost perfect September 5, 2017
Reviewer: Andrew Schueler from  
I have purchased 3 of these modules and the biggest issue is the machine key that holds the PG71 to the pivot gear. One module has a key that was manufactured too long and skinny so the retainer ring didn't fit well. As a result, the retainer ring was missing a tooth that should have kept the machine key in. This allows the wheel to rotate +- 5 degrees without motor input. A better QC job is what I would recommend. Otherwise, the other 2 modules came with proper length machine keys and are tight and don't allow unwanted rotation. The swerve module is generally a great product.
