Panning Range Sensor Kit Assembly Guide


This is the assembly guide for the RobotGeek Panning Range Sensor Kit.

Pre Step: Peel Your Plastic

Some of your plastic pieces will have paper masking on one or both sides. Peel the masking paper off before getting started.

There also may be some dust on your parts. This is from the laser cutting manufacturing process. It is harmless and can be cleaned up by wiping with a rag or being washed with water.

Each plastic piece will have 2 sides - a matte side and a glossy side. When you're assembling your kit, the matte side should point up while the glossy side should point down.

Step 1: Mount the servo to the servo plate

  • Mount the servo as shown using 2 x M2*8 bolts and 2 x M2 nuts.
  • Bolt on the standoffs using 2 x M3*6 bolts and 2 x M3*20 standoffs.
  • If you are mounting the servo without the IR kit use 2 x M3*6 bolts to mount it to your deck.

Step 2: Drill out the horn

  • You will have a black or white servo horn depending on which servo you are using. With a 1/16" drill bit drill out the second hole on each side of the horn.
