Overview of the hardware
Working area of Andrew+
The required working area of Andrew+ depends on the complexity of the protocol. In fact, based on the number of consumables, one or more Dominos may be needed. The image below shows the maximum working area of Andrew+ when the system is used with 11 DOMINOs. Note: as the diagram below shows, any Device+ dominos will be located in the 3rd row, furthest from the robot.
⚠️ CAUTION: Andrew+ should have enough space to work! Its work area should free of any obstacles.
Width: 1078 mm / 42.52 in
Only with Dominos: 668 mm / 26.3 in
With at least one Device+ on the edge: 711 mm / 29 in
Height: 606,5 mm / 23.88 in
Voltage range 90~264 VAC, AC current 1.85A/115VAC, 1.0A/230VAC, Frequency 47~63Hz, inrush current (max) 120A/230VAC
