The Ohio State Multi-Object Spectrograph (OSMOS) is a new facility imager and spectrograph for the 2.4m Hiltner telescope at the MDM Observatory. We present a detailed description of the mechanical and electronic solutions employed in OSMOS, many of which have been developed and extensively tested in a large number of instruments built at Ohio State over the past ten years. These solutions include robust aperture wheel and linear stage designs, mechanism control with MicroLYNX programmable logic controllers, and WAGO fieldbus I/O modules.
