MAXPlanetary Base Kits purchased before 11/14/2022 included a MAXPlanetary CIM/Falcon Spacer (REV-21-2119) to ensure that the input stage for CIM, MiniCIM, and Falcon 500 motors sits correctly in the MAXPlanetary Gearbox. Please be sure to install the spacer before assembling your MAXPlanetary Gearbox and attaching the Input Stage to your motor.
The following steps are only required if you are using a CIM, MiniCIM, or Falcon Motor
1) Place the MAXPlanetary CIM/Falcon Spacer onto your motor.
2) Align two of the mounting holes on the motor with the holes in the spacer.
MAXPlanetary Gearboxes purchased before 11/14/2022 use Version 1 of the MAXPlanetary Keyed Input Coupler and will need to install the included spacer to use a CIM, miniCIM, or Falcon 500. If your Keyed Input Coupler is a V1, the dimension highlighted in the drawing below will be 14.9mm or 0.59in.
MAXPlanetary Gearboxes purchased after 11/14/2022 use Version 1.1 the MAXPlanetary Keyed Input Coupler and do not need the spacer. If your Keyed Input Coupler is a V1.1, the dimension highlighted in the drawing below will be 14.4mm or 0.57in.
When using a Falcon Spline Input Coupler with your MAXPlanetary Gearbox you do not need to install the spacer.
