A project log for Ultra Servo V2.0

The intent behind the Ultra Servo is to give a maker or a robotics a powerful building block.

Since the position sensor now needed to be at the foot of the servo, all the brackets and mounting plates had to be redesigned. All the wire management was much more though out because the large diameter wire that supplies the servo is definitely a large item that needs consideration. The last iteration have too many parts to hold the components in place. The revised base plate was designed in 2 parts that welded together. The aluminum plates have multiple holes for mounting screws and reliefs for clearing the electrical components through hole mounting.

The two parts may seem simple but I have spent lots and lots of time to iterate the design to consider manufacturing tolerances, cable routing, belt routing and the ability to actually bolt it together!
