FlexSEA-Rigid 0.2(B) Connectors

If you are using Rigid 0.1, please refer to the FlexSEA-Rigid 0.1 Connectors page. On v0.2 the expansion connector was flipped to expose the lock (easier to connect/disconnect) and the Strain and Angle connectors have been replaced by Pico-Clasp equivalents instead of PicoBlade. As a result, only one crimp tool is needed.

J4: Expansion

J1 and J2: Strain and Joint Angle

Programming and Debugging

On Rigid 0.2 the programming ports use different connectors. Ex and Re have 0.5mm FFC connectors while Mn, the most often programmed microcontroller, has a more robust 1mm FFC connector. They use different Programming Adapters.

What's different on the B version?

First and foremost, all of the information above is true for both 0.2 and 0.2B. 0.2B is a minor update of 0.2 done at the end of 2019. If you buy an ActPack in 2019 (especially as part of the Open Source Leg project) that's what you will get. The main differences are:

  • New FFC connector for encoder. Legacy connector is still available.
  • New FFC connector for external strain gauge. Legacy connector is still available.
  • New FFC connector to support External User Interface.
