"Y" Cables

Can you use a y cable with vex?

Yes, you can use “Y” cables with Vex Robotics. The “Y” cables are available at http://www.vexlabs.com/vex-robotics-electrical-parts.shtml. Be aware that the Vex Controller Motor Outputs are current limited as well as your battery has current limits. The Motor Outputs will be limited after the total current from all Motor Outputs is over 4 Amps. Therefore, it is possible that several motors in a stall condition can max the Motor Outputs current capacity and motor capabilities will be reduced.
