  • 1. Electronics Shock Absorption
    Hey all I had this crazy idea, and as usually happens when you have a crazy idea (that you think you have just invented), someone already did it. So, I'd appreciate a few pointers. Let's say you're designing a wheeled robotic platform a little smaller than a golf cart that is intended to run on rough terrain and you want to isolate the electronic components from shocks. The platform already has shock absorbers on each wheel, but I feel that won't be enough. My idea is to hang the "electronics box" with strong elastic cords, one cord in each corner of the box (8 in total) in a way that all cords are tense enough not to allow the box to crash into the chassis but relaxed enough to allow some dumping of the shock. Do you think it could work? Think of it as a box fluctuating (with the help of the bungees) inside a tubular frame. Padu

  • 3. Making plastic servo parts (not injection modling)
    Hi, I am looking for a way to make parts of a servo case (body, servo horn) in a mold using some cold procedure (2k liquids, or something). Has anyone done that? Can you tell me what plastics are out there? The idea is to create a new and better servo horn. The original horns of most servos are made by injection molding nylon, but injection molding is extremely expensive for short euns. I am looking for some plastic that can be used in modl and is similar ly strong as Nylon when cured. I also need another plastic to mold an alternative servo housing with different mounts. Any suggestions? The goal is about 60 cases and horns. Yhanks for any help or pointers Matt

I'm trying to connect a Sharp GP2Y0D340K IR Sensor to a solderless
breadboard. The GP2Y0D340K module has 5 short pins spaced 0.1" apart.

I tried connecting the module to a Molex KK Series 0.1" pitch header so
I could add crimped pins, but the module's pins were too short and not
thick enough to fit the header.

I would like something similar to the special 3-pin cable for the Sharp
GP2D120 IR Sensor.

And if I can't find a header for the GP2Y0D340K, I will try

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thank you.

These are JST connectors. You can get them from ''. I'm sure
you can get them elsewhere as well, but acroname has them connected to
wires. Not cheap, but not too bad.
