Tackling the challenges of the FIRST Robotics Competition requires rapid iteration, numerous revisions, and adaptation to the game challenges. Recognizing that not all teams have access to the same equipment or resources, we created REV ION to enable and empower all teams to be competitive.
REV ION is a system of mechanical and electrical products that are perfectly compatible with each other, allowing for complex robot designs without large budgets or extensive manufacturing resources. With basic tools, teams can build affordable, competitive machines, while preserving the ability to infinitely re-configure and iterate on their designs.
Look for the REV ION flag and logo on our website and shop with confidence knowing all products are compatible and designed to work together seamlessly.
REV Robotics is proud to supplier for the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). For more information about the FIRST Robotics Competition, please visit the FIRST Robotics Competition website.

MAXPlanetary Gearbox (REV-21-2100)

The MAXPlanetary is intended for use with the NEO-class motors, it also supports NEO 550 and 775 size motors. Building on the ability to iterate and adjust designs easily, the MAXPlanetary System consists of lubricated cartridges allowing for swapping gear ratios on the fly and with ease. The design of the MAXPlanetary has been carefully optimized to provide torque density unavailable in FRC up until now.

UltraPlanetary Gearbox (REV-41-1600)

The UltraPlanetary Gearbox is a cartridge based modular planetary gearbox designed with 550 motors, like the NEO 550, in mind. Easy to iterate and adjust designs using the pre-assembled and lubricated cartridges to swap gear ratios with ease.

1" Extrusion Lift Kit (REV-25-1290)

The REV 1" Extrusion Lift Kit includes the parts necessary for teams to build robust and compact Linear Motion Lifts. The kit uses the proven camming V-Bearing system to ensure there is smooth and bind-free motion at all times. Teams can use a motor and gearbox solution that meets their particular needs.

Blinkin LED Driver (REV-11-1105)

Blinkin makes adding LEDs to your robot as simple as driving a motor. Chose the pattern you want and give it the corresponding PWM signal. The REV Robotics Blinkin LED Driver is a compact LED driver module that simplifies controlling both 12V RGB LED and 5V individually-addressable WS2812 LED strips. Blinkin combines internal LED drivers, a 5V power source, and a pre-programmed controller all in one package.


REV Robotics offers a number of digital, I2C, and analog sensors for use as feedback devices on robots.
