Swerve

The newest generation of our swerve drive module, designed from the ground up to utilize the powerful Kraken X60 brushless motor to improve performance and remove complexity. This new design is smaller, lighter, and more versatile than our previous module, and truly makes omnidirectional driving as simple as plug and play.

  • Modules accept multiple motors: Kraken X60 - 775pro - 550 motors.

  • Natively supports CAN and Mag Encoder

  • Alignment holes to zero module.

  • Clearance holes so motors can be removed without disassembling gearbox.

  • Easy to install encoder locations

  • Flipped and Non Flipped option

  • Wheel height is the same regardless of configuration, so it is possible to mix and match modules on robot.

Weight Comparison

All weights for configurations were calculated without any motors.

Corner Mount module weights do not include the weight for either the Top Support Plate or the Bottom Support Plate.

Drive Ratios

The X gear ratios are designed to be a consistent spread across all Swerve X configs. All X Gear Ratios come with 3 pinions on the same pitch to get the spread.

Swerve X Gear Ratios (Standard)

The Rotation Ratio is the same throughout all motor configurations using the 10t pinions, which is compatible with all motors. The overall rotation gear ratio will be 396/35:1 or 11.3142:1

Swerve X Gear Ratios (Flipped, Gears Below)

The Rotation Ratio is the same throughout all motor configurations using the 10t pinions, which is compatible with all motors. The overall rotation gear ratio will be 468/35:1 or 13.3714:1
