The PicoBox gearboxes are designed specifically for FIRST Tech Challenge teams. These highly configurable gearboxes are a robust solution for teams to make fine adjustments to the output speed and torque of drivetrains, mechanisms and more. All PicoBox gearboxes are designed to work with other building systems that FIRST Tech Challenge teams are familiar with, because they are built to work around a base 16mm center-to-center hole pattern. The flanges on the PicoBox gearboxes are reversible while maintaining a base 16mm hole pattern.
The PicoBox GEO is a single reduction, double motor input gearbox that utilizes steel 32DP gears. This gearbox accepts two NeveRest Orbital gearmotors as its input, and it has a robust steel 6mm D shaft for its output. The motors can be installed on each side of the output shaft, or the motors can be installed side by side with the output shaft installed on one of the ends of the gearbox. The PicoBox GEO can also be built as a double reduction, single motor input, single output gearbox with an included 36mm D shaft to facilitate stacking two gears on a cluster shaft that would be installed in the middle of the gearbox.
The GEO is named after Geostationary Earth Orbit. Geosynchronous orbits are also called geostationary. Satellites that stay above a location on Earth are in geosynchronous Earth orbit, or GEO. These satellites orbit about 23,000 miles (37,015 km) above the equator and complete one revolution around Earth precisely every 24 hours. For more information about orbits, go here!
The PicoBox GEO is not compatible with the NeveRest Motor Only (am-3104) or the NeveRest Classic series of gearmotors.
The PicoBox GEO is designed specifically for the NeveRest Orbital series of gearmotors.
All AndyMark gearboxes require grease for proper operation and long life. We suggest using our red tacky grease, am-2768. We also encourage that the user powers the gearbox continuously for 30 minutes without grease to allow the gear teeth to wear in. While we do design with short runtimes in mind, this 'run in' period for smooth gearbox operation, is recommended. Once this is completed, thorough grease of the gear teeth periodically to ensure smooth operation.
