Robotic Arm Kit (Manual & PC Windows Control)
The RA-02 Robotic Arm teaches basic robotic principles. The RA-02 kit includes all components necessary to build the robotic arm shown at left.
The robotic arm kit also includes the SMC-05 5-position servomotor controller kit. The servomotor kit includes the pcb and all components necessary to build the servomotor controller (soldering is required). Using the 5-position servomotor controller see picture below one can control the robotic arm using the onboard three position switches to manually to grab, lift, lower, wrist rotate and pivot.
In addition the Windows (98/XP) control software Free Download Available! allows PC control through one of your PC's serial port. The windows program has a script writing feature that allows one to program the robotic arm with thousands of movements with full, precise and repeatable control of each movement. Scripts may hold a maximum of 10,000 movements (including pauses) with a maximum repetition of 10, 000.
