New Products – 12/12/2014

Friday, December 12th, 2014

New items to get your motor running this holiday season!

Is the Arduino Uno’s hardware just not cutting it? Do you need a more powerful platform, but you’re not ready to move away from the Arduino IDE? Then the Teensy 3.1 is the perfect ARM based microcontroller for your next robot project. The Teensy 3.1 is a complete USB-based microcontroller development system and is as versatile as it is powerful. A custom Teensy installer and bridge application will easily allow you to write sketches for the Teensy and load them on to the Teensy. All programming is done via the USB port just like the Arduino – no special programmer is needed.


 

Have you ever wanted to hook up your robot to your iOS device? Now you can utilize Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy (BLE) technology in your robot with the BLE Mini. The BLE Mini requires only a serial port for communication so it supports all major development platforms that have UART interface including ArduinoArbotiX-M Robocontroller,Geekduino, Raspberry Pi, etc. In addition, you are given access to all Ti’s CC2540 I/O pins and the ability to upload firmware via USB, making the BLE Mini an ideal development/protoyping board for your BLE project/accessory/Appcessory.


We have two new Dynamixel Pro robot actuators from Robotis, the DYNAMIXEL PRO L54-50-S500-R and the DYNAMIXEL PRO L54-30-S500-R. These new actuators have incredibly high power and precision, making them ideal for for everything from advanced robotics to industry applications. Using ROBOTIS’s frame system for the DYNAMIXEL PRO, you’ll be able to rapidly create a variety of different systems and robots. These new servos have position, speed, AND torque based commands.


Get your rover rolling with our new custom Robot DC Gearhead Motor & Wheel Starter Kit. Each kit comes with 2 motors and wheel sets as well as a pair of brackets to mount your motors to your robot. Each wheel is 90mm in diameter (including the rubber tire). The motors in this kit use Hall Effect Quadrature sensors to achieve an encoder output of 520 ticks/revolution, allowing you to control the motors very precisely. Each motor includes a 6-pin cable that breaks out motor inputs and the associated encoder I/O. Single wheel and hub sets are also available.


That’s all for now, thanks for checking it out. Stick around for more updates as products roll in.

Check out Thor-Mang, the DYNAMIXEL PRO based Humanoid!

Monday, November 11th, 2013

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.

2 New DYNAMIXEL PROs and New Frames!

Friday, October 25th, 2013

DXLPRO_mainimg

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 DYNAMIXEL PRO is here!

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.

DYNAMIXEL Pros are here!

Monday, July 8th, 2013

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.

Trossen Robotics Shop Talk # 2

Trossen Robotics Shop Talk 2

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.

This episode focused on Robotis and their line of Robot Actuators, the DYNAMIXELS.

(0:47)First Andrew talked about the MX DYNAMIXEL robot actuators, including their history, features and why he loves them so much.

(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

(16:27) Matt and Andrew went on to talk about ROBOTIS and why they’re so successful. They also shared some stories of their trip to South Korea (19:35) and some rarely seen footage of the trip.

(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.

DYNAMIXEL PRO Actuators are coming!

Check out even more information on the DYNAMIXEL PRO line!


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.
