Product Overview

This is the cable designed for the encoder that is pre-attached to the NeveRest Series of motors and gearmotors. It has a connector to directly interface between the NeveRest encoder and the HiTechnic DC Motor Controller for TETRIX or the Modern Robotics Motor Controller.

This cable plugs into the Modern Robotics Motor Controller in the same orientation as the picture above. The red wire is towards the center of the controller.

  • Wire size: 22 gauge
  • Connections: 4-pin white connector (plugs into encoder), 4-pin black connector (plugs into motor controller)
  • Length: 0.5 meter (19.5 inches)

Specifications

  • Gauge: 22 AWG
  • Length: 19.5 in.

    No problems

    I ordered 4 of these to regulate motor output (NeveRest motors with 40:1 and 3.7:1 gearboxes) on FTC Team 5115's robot and they work with no problems.

    "Motor connection end: wires fray easily"

    "We have had a tough time with this connector at the motor's end. The motor is mounted on a tilting platform so there is some movement. The wires from the connector keep fraying because there is little stress relief for the wire thickness used. Make sure the connector isn't moving or add some stress relief if it does move."

    Not bad

    Cables work as expected however the red cables were not crimped properly so easily pull out of connector. This happened on half of the cables. We just soldered them back in.

    Good Solid Connector

    These cables are great! They are more rigid than the cables for the TETRIX motors, which is great! While they are more rigid, they are also completely flexible.

    Not yet tested

    I am so thrilled to finally have a cable that is not so tiny that it breaks every time it is touched (Tetrix encoder wires). We will see how well they work, but they are definitely better for use with students.

    "OK, but..."

    "The way these are constructed makes them very easy to fray and break the wires unless handled very carefully. (AndyMark response: We found a few in an early batch that had some issues on being re-worked, please contact us at sales@andymark.com if you feel you have a bad cable.)"

    and it works like a cable! Only downside is that the connectors are both a bit large for fitting through the large holes on some of the building sets.

    "suffered a short after mild use"

    "wire insulation i not adequate at the controller end - you will likely suffer a short down the road after moderate use. (AndyMark Response: We found a batch of our first encoder cables to not have the insulation on the wire all the way to the connector, if you feel this is causing an issue on your robot, please email sales@andymark.com and we can replace your cable for you)"

    necessary, but not confidence inspiring

    Would be nice if: 1. keyed connector 2. wire gauge was smaller so the insulation fit in the crimp on pins on the motor controller end. On the other hand, the USDigital encoder cables tend to be brittle and these seem stronger. Maybe something to keep the bare wire out of trouble at the motor controller connector would help. (Hot melt glue has been suggested).

    "Best encoder cable for the job!"

    "Please note to use more than one cable connector into the Tetrix FTC motor controller, one needs to remove the small internal micro plates (guides) for proper plug in fit, which also limits one to using only this connection design. But these are better than all the others both in quality and price. So it's not a big deal."

    Cable

    There are no extensions sold for this product. It was very disappointing not to be able to connect our motor to our DC controller -- the cable was not long enough.

    KH from Upper St. Clair

  42. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    "Work, but not perfect"

    "The encoders in the motors work well with the cables. However, if the cables are bent sideways at the motor controller, the insulation pulls back and the uninsulated bare wires underneath are exposed, leading to the possibility of shorts. The black connector is also not the right one for the HiTechnic motor controller encoder input (too tight, not keyed), though it does fit with some effort. I hope AndyMark comes out with an updated version that allows the cables to be bent without exposing the bare wires and with the correct connector for the motor controller."
