Product Overview

Specifically designed for FTC, (though not limited to FTC), this remarkable system is a quick way to execute a controlled extension. Each stage of the Compact Linear Slide is controlled by a pulley system that can be rigged to power both extension and retraction.

Options:

  • 1 Stage has 12.18 inches of stroke 
  • 2 Stage has 24.37 inches of stroke
  • 3 Stage has 36.56 inches of stroke
  • Additional Stages
    • AndyMark officially supports a 3 stage system however teams may elect to add additional stages to increase reach. 
    • Note: Teams should consider the increased wraps of string on the pulley assembly when attempting to add more stages.

Suggested Rigging:

  • Continuous
    • One string per direction that connects through each stage
    • For more details, see the assembly guide and video below (coming soon) 

Included Powering/Gearing:

  • NeveRest Orbital 13.7 to 1
    • Speedy, approximately 1 second per stage at full speed. 
    • Enough torque to easily lift multiple stages with a manipulator and game pieces, up to 10lb total. 
      • If lifting more than 10lb total including manipulator consider using a higher ratio motor for more torque

    OK

    The good: The slide is buttery-smooth and the instructions are great. The bad: The kit was missing the spring, the disks for the spool are mis-drilled so they don't fit perfectly, and the wire for the motor is not included.

    One very smooth slide

    This is a very smooth linear slide. Excellent as an extension lift too. We highly recommend it. Just one thing. We killed the spring tensioner. I wish it came with a few extra for the learning curve since they are not very expensive.
