ROBOTIS has just posted a video of THOR-MANG to their youtube channel. THOR-MANG is a collaboration between ROBOTIS, Virginia Tech, the University of Pennsylvania and Harris. This human sized robot uses the new DYNAMIXEL PRO line of robot actuators. THOR stands for Tactical Hazardous Operations Robot – a humanoid designed to operate in environments that are hostile to humans. This teaser video shows THOR-MANG activating a shut-off valve, and you can see even more tasks in another teaser video released earlier last month.

There are 2 new DYNAMIXEL PROs ready for order – the H42-20-S and the H54-200-S . Along with the H54-100-S , the entire line of ‘H’ series DYNAMXIEL PROs are available. These three servos sport some serious torque (5.6 – 39.131 Nm) and some amazing resolution (304,000-502,000 steps/turn).
In addition to the new servos, ROBOTIS has released 8 new frames for the DYNAMIXEL PRO line. Now it’s even easier to build around the DYNAMIXEL PROS!
Call us at 1-877-898-1005 for pricing and delivery information on the DYNAMIXEL PROS.
Our first test unit from the DYNAMIXEL PRO line just came in! The DYNAMIXEL PRO Robot Actuator is a thing of engineering beauty, and we’re excited to start working with the DYNAMIXEL PRO line. We’ll be sure to keep you posted with videos and information about this awesome new actuator in the coming weeks.
The wait is over, ROBOTIS has finally released the first two of their DYNAMIXEL PRO Line! The L54-60-S300-R and the H54-100-S500-R are ready for pre-order. The DYNAMIXEL PRO line of Robot Actuators is ROBOTIS’s new solution for full-scale robots. These new actuators have incredibly high power and precision, making them ideal for for everything from advanced robotics to industry applications.
These two models use the RS-485 communication protocol and are compatible right out of the gate with the USB2DYNAMIXEL. In the future we can look forward to 7 more DYNAMIXEL PRO models, communication protocols, a robust set of frames, and more gear-box options like right-angle and belt. Check out our DYNAMIXEL PRO page for more information.
The DYNAMIXEL PRO line are built to order and there is an 8-10 week lead time on both of these models. For more information about pricing and availability call us at 877-898-1005 or e-mail us.
We’re constantly talking about new technologies, products and media that relate to robotics. Now, we’ve decided to let you in on the conversation, and to take a peek at the things that are piquing our interest.
(7:44) Andrew went on to talk about the amazing new DYNAMIXEL PRO Robot Actuators. These new powerful and precise actuators are are designed for full-scale robots. With up to 4x the torque of the current most powerful DYNAMIXEL, these servos have everyone at Trossen Robotics very excited. These actuators will be available in 2013, and you can get more information here
(23:10) In the Sneak Peak section, they showed off some of our products that are currently in the pipeline. Matt showed off a new mobile robotics platform based on the Budget Bot. However, this platform uses the Arbotix RoboController and will have a built in robotic arm, making it an amazing mobile research platform. Andrew showed off the two new MX based Robotic Arms that Trossen Robotics will be releasing. These arms use the MX-28 and MX-64 DYNAMIXEL servos, making them our most powerful and smooth arms to date. They also gave us a look at a new joystick control panel for controlling our robotic arms.
(28:54)Matt gave shout outs to both All Electronics and Alltronics, two great places for sourcing electronic parts and components. Andrew gave a shout out to American Science and Surplus, a Chicago based surplus store that has everything from military supplies to electronic components. He also mentioned Mech Warfare Warrior Ryan Lowerr and his projects, including his ATMEL based tracking system
(31:31)For this week’s Tips and Tricks, Matt shared tips about weights, both for testing load capacities on our robots, and for weighing down arms and cameras. Andrew showed us how to make a quick experimenter’s power supply with a computer power supply, and where to go once you need even more amperage.

Something new is brewing at ROBOTIS and we’re really excited! The new DYNAMIXEL PRO actuators will be the strongest, most precise DYNAMIXELs to date, and have been designed with full scaled robots in mind. Some of the things we’ve learned about them include -
-10x Higher Torque/Precision over the DXL series
-Uses a Novel Gear Reduction System
-Current Based Torque Control
-Supports multiple communication protocols including CAN-Bus and RS-485
We’ll keep you posted as we learn more details about these amazing actuators. And once these actuators are available, look out for some awesome new Interbotix Labs products based around them.
