Achieve smooth and stable slide motion with the 4 Stage Viper-Slide Kit! Its Steel Viper-Slides provide a strong backbone in compact form, enabling linear motion of extraordinary reach and stability.
The 4 Stage Viper-Slide Kit is highly mountable to almost anything goBILDA® thanks to an on-pattern 1120 Series U-Channel at its base.
The kit’s extension end rocks a grid-pattern of both thru-holes and threaded holes for the secure attachment of everything you intend to extend—from ServoBlocks™ to U-Channel and more.
This kit can make linear Viper-Slide action happen in any orientation, whether it’s up, down, left, right–you name it!
In terms of extension, it’s capable of a maximum of 976mm (38.4”) of travel (difference between retracted and extended length) while measuring a compact 384mm (15.1”) top-to-bottom length in its retracted state.
Just install a motor of your choice to get the Viper-Slide Kit up and running! The kit’s 1201-0043-0002 Pattern Mount and 8mm REX Sonic Hub are both super-compatible with whatever goBILDA® 5203 Series Yellow Jacket Planetary Gear Motor has the right ratio for your robot.
A 112mm (4.4”) circumference pulley drives the kit 112mm per rotation. With a maximum travel distance of 976mm (38.4”), the kit reaches full extension at 8.7 rotations of its motor’s shaft.
The fastest motor we recommend for most applications is a 13.7:1 (435RPM) Yellow Jacket Planetary Gear Motor. That ratio can extend all four stages in about 1.2 seconds! Because of such high potential speed, we recommend using the encoder on the 5203 Series motor to start and stop your kit at appropriate limits.
Be sure to purchase the 5203 Series Yellow Jacket Planetary Gear Motor of your choice to power this kit. If you’re using a REV Control Hub, or REV Expansion Hub, don't forget to pick up a motor cable adaptor! We also highly recommend using your motor’s encoder. If you do so, you’ll need an encoder cable.
