  • Solenoid permited in competition?

    Hi, I'm Mike "SkillShot" Alvarado, from BlueSteel 5133, a Rookie Team from Aguascalientes, Mexico.
    I'm the Engineering "1st Officer" and we had a question about if our solenoid permitted in the competition.
    The Game-Manual says "Electrical solenoid actuators, no greater than 1 in. stroke and rated electrical input power no greater than 10 watts (W) continuous duty at 12 volts (VDC)" (May I suppose the stroke is the part that "goes up and down")

    ¡Muchas gracias! ¡Nos vemos en la competéncia!

    Hi,

    Welcome to the FIRST forums!

    Just a reminder that while this forum can be used to discuss rules and other posters are free to provide their interpretation, official responses will only be provided via the FRC Q&A system http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprogr...c/game-q-and-a. Make sure to search the appropriate Q&A sections before asking a question to see if your question has already been asked.

    Note that the Q&A is to address specific questions about the rules and may not be used as a generic pre-inspection for a part's legality.

      The "stroke" of a solenoid is the distance the actuator moves when the solenoid is activated.
