    12V Lead Acid Battery Set of 2

    #am-3062
    $145.00
    (3 In stock)

    The SLA1116 is a 12 Volt, 18 amp-hour sealed lead acid battery with nut and bolt connector. The batteries will be packed within a 7"x7"x7" box (aka: interior box). A layer packing material surrounds the interior box, within a 9"x9"x9" box. The entire weight of this double box packing assembly will be approximately 29 pounds. 

     

    These premium batteries are AGM (absorbent glass mat) type sealed lead-acid batteries. AGM batteries use thin glass fibers interwoven into a mat. This helps to make the battery spill-proof, as the fibers containing the glass mat gradually absorbs the acid composition. As a result, AGM batteries have fewer hazardous material limitations.

     

    AGM’s unique composition allows the batteries to produce high currents and longer life span. The technology also minimizes internal resistance and helps the battery to survive low temperatures. Specific models of AGM product will allow users to benefit from AGM’s deep-cycling capability. It also offers a charging speed that is 5x faster than conventional flooded deep-cycle batteries.
     

    AGM ADVANTAGES
    • Less prone to sulfation - (Topping off charges typically only required every three months).
    • High on-demand power, Low internal resistance & responsive to demand load.
    • Longer/ better cycles & efficient usage life than conventional flooded systems.
    • Up To 5X Faster charging capacity (Compared to conventional flooded battery technology).
    • Stands up well to cold temperature.
    • Vibration resistance due to sandwich construction.
    • Spill proof through acid encapsulation in matting technology.
    • Eco-friendly, has less electrolyte and lead compared to conventional flooded type batteries.
     

    AGM CONSIDERATIONS
    • Higher cost than conventional batteries.
    • Must be stored in charged condition (less critical than conventional flooded batteries).
    • AGM batteries are sensitive to overcharging

    Two (2) batteries are shipped within one box for this price.

    AM14U5 - 6 Wheel Drop Center Robot Drive Base - FIRST Kit of Parts Chassis

    #am-14U5
    $999.00
    (1 In stock)

    Want to learn what you can change and accomplish with the AM14U5? Start here for a look at all the things this frame can do for you.



    A large format, infinitely configurable drive platform is designed and built with performance in mind. You are getting a drive chassis that has three main configurations (Long, Square & Wide) as starting options. The drop center wheel allows for smoother turning ability, while maintaining stability.

     

    Perfect for prototyping robotic applications as well as being part of the final design!

     

    The 5th major upgrade to this chassis with many more minor revisions. Our AM14U family of products have built upon the lessons learned since the first AM14U was designed in 2013.  And it was a major upgrade to the C-base chassis that was part of the FIRST Kit of Parts since 2009.

     

    This is the "AM" - "ONE" - "FOR" - "YOU"!

     

    This product ships as an un-assembled kit. It features HiGrip Wheels, Toughbox Mini Gearboxes, and Gates HTD Belts.

     

    Shipping Box Size: 34 in. x 7 in. x 7 in.

     

    Assembly and cutting of aluminum is required. See the Assembly Videos below.

     

    If this chassis is being used for the FIRST Robotics Competition, please consider the robot perimeter rules and size this chassis accordingly. The manual helps clearly show where to make cuts for different sizes, you can adapt your cuts to fit as needed.

     

    NOTE: This chassis DOES NOT include the following as there are many options for each case:

     

    • CIM motors (am-0255)
    • Bumper Hardware Mount Kit (am-3966)
      • Recommended method to mount bumpers to this chassis.
    • Vertical Battery Mount Kit (am-3964a)
      • Recommended method for Battery mounting to this chassis.

     

    Various Frame Size Configurations:

     

    Built on the same great features of previous AM14U family chassis, this can be configured into many different perimeter, wheel, and gearbox configurations. There are literally thousands of possible playing configurations.

     

    • Smallest Frame size: 24.3 in. x 27 in.
    • Largest Frame size: 32.3 in. x 31 in.

     

    It is shipped as a Kit with plates that can build in a large square configuration. This makes it the largest possible size and allows for the user to trim the length and width of the chassis to become a long, wide, or a smaller square to fit different the size constraints of each specific year. The assembly instructions show how it can be changed, be sure to check out the assembly videos as well.

     

    Multiple Wheel And Build Configuration Options:

     

    For even more wheel and build configurations, check out our AM14U4 & AM14U5 Wheel Upgrades!

    Encoder Options:

     

    The AM14U5 does not include encoders. The Toughbox Mini gearboxes included in the AM14U5 ship with an output shaft (am-2566b) that has two holes in the end for optional included 1/4" diameter steel dowels (am-1323) that are compatible with the US Digital E4T Encoder (am-3132) and the REV Through Bore Encoder (am-4650). Teams also have the option of purchasing a magnetic dowel (am-3505) to replace the steel dowel allowing the use of the SRX Magnetic Encoder (am-3445). In order to use this encoder on the Toughbox Mini, our SRX Magnetic Encoder Mounting Hardware Kit (am-3565) must also be used to mount each encoder.

    Climber in a Box - 2 Stage

    #am-4668
    $324.00
    (7 In stock)

    The AndyMark Climber in a Box is a robust, lightweight, configurable and affordable solution for climbing challenges historically present in FRC end game periods. The design of Climber in a Box has been inspired by many team designs along the way including 254 and 2056. The final prototype for this climber was developed in partnership with FRC Team 3940 CyberTooth for the 2020/2021 Infinite Recharge season. This mechanism has been battle tested with hundreds of climbs on a full weight FRC Robot without failures, both in development and real match play. Available in single and two stage configurations, this product should help teams of all levels elevate their team's performance at competitions.

     

    This product uses a "spring out, winch back" powertrain strategy, using off-the-shelf 3.5lb constant force springs to raise the included Hook Kit, and 3mm Dyneema Rope to retract it with the included Winch Kit. Simply unspool the included rope using a planetary gearbox to raise the hook(s), drive the robot up to the bar, and winch it back to elevate your robot. The AndyMark Climber in a Box does not include a motor or gearbox, but is compatible with many off-the-shelf planetary gearboxes on the market that have a 2" bolt circle mounting pattern and support a 2" long 1/2" hex output shaft, including the highly durable blue Sport Gearboxes.

     

    The bearing kits within this product are designed to go from 2" square 1/16" wall aluminum tubing, down to a 1" square 1/16" wall tube, with a 1.5" square 1/16" wall tube in between for the 2 stage flavor of this product. A combination of durable 608 bearings and custom molded plastic components provide the bearing surfaces for a free-flowing telescoping tube mechanism with no 3D printed parts. Each stage has a maximum travel of 24.5."

     

    The AndyMark Climber in a Box is an unassembled kit of everything you need (besides a gearmotor) that is designed to not require any precision machining in order to make your FRC robot climb. The plates included within the Hook Kit, Bearing Kits and Winch Kit are all designed to be assembled and used as drill guides for match drilling their mounting locations onto the aluminum tubes. Each tube is pre-cut to a 30" length so no cutting of the tubes is required to achieve maximum travel.
