|notes||Logo engraving must NOT be stretched. Please send photo of first samples to verify.
Insert into motor box with FarmBot logo facing DOWN.
|Motor length||Measure the length of the motor body (no encoder or shaft) using digital calipers.||47.3mm||+/- 0.5mm|
|Motor housing fit||Mount a motor to the cross-slide plate with a horizontal motor housing.
Mount a motor to the z-axis motor mount and cover with the vertical motor housing.
|Motor should fit inside housing||N/A|
|Shaft||Mount a GT2 pulley onto the motor shaft according to the FarmBot system design.||Pulley should mount as expected||N/A|
|Shaft length||Measure the length of the motor shaft using digital calipers.||22mm||+/- 0.5mm|
|Mounting holes||Mount a motor to a cross-slide plate according to the FarmBot system design.||Screws should thread into motor as expected||N/A|
|Motor operation||Connect the motor to a Farmduino and issue a movement command.||Motor should operate as expected||N/A|
|Encoder||Connect the motor and encoder to a Farmduino, issue a movement command, and inspect the encoder position in the web app.||Encoder position values should update as expected||N/A|
|Engraving||Inspect the FarmBot logo engraving.||Must not be stretched||N/A|
