Payloads should be designed to interface correctly with a cable connector and mount to the top of Spot. Detailed CAD is available on the Support Center at https://support.bostondynamics.com/s/article/Defeatured-Spot-CAD-Models.
Cable and connector interface
Boston Dynamics provides a fully shielded, over-molded DB25 cable to make the connection between Spot’s payload ports and payloads. Payloads designed for the robot should have an interface for this cabling to maintain IP54 ingress protection.
Correct orientation of DB25 relative to front of robot
Keepout dimensions in mm
Boston Dynamics provides robust, environmentally sealed payload cables. A payload must ensure that the necessary keepout regions are compatible with the DB25 overmold on these cables.
Sealing gland geometry in mm
Payloads should incorporate a small ridge around the DB25 connector. This ridge should be about 3mm tall and of 21mm by 63mm. Corner radius is 5mm. The ridge presses into a foam gasket on the cable side to create a seal.
