Clarification on some parts to order please

I am ordering the parts for a Farm Bot (obviously) and I have a few questions on the BoM.

Rotary Encoders - does each motor need a set or 1 encoder and each of the 3 lengths of wire?
"Qty 3 NEMA 17 Stepper Motors and Rotary Encoders with 0.5m, 2.5m, and 4m cables"
Jumper Wire - any details?
Barbs - how many, what shapes? What is the application for?

Each motor needs one encoder. So you will need three encoders total. Each encoder requires a different length cable in order to reach to the electronics box.

Jumper wire, any 18 gauge wire will do.

Barbs, I believe you are referencing some components we use to connect the garden hose and solenoid valve up to FarmBot’s main water tube. We are still figuring out exactly which components work best for this, so haven’t listed any details yet. Though we expect to list them in a few weeks when we update the docs. Thank you for your patience :slight_smile:
