The Mover4 robot arm allow to replay automation scenarios close to reality, he can be used as a motion platform and connects physics, math and computer science with reality! With its four axis he can move free in space and turn the hand. Different tools can be attached to the flange, e.g. a two finger gripper or an electrical magnet. With the gripper the robot has a reach of 550 mm and a payload of 500 g.
Communication: The robot arm is controlled via USB by a standard PC or laptop. The programming environment CPRog provides versatile interaction possibilites, but also allows an easy entry.
Packages for the ROS Robot Operating System by Willow Garage are available and allow the combination of the arm with state of the art robotics software.
Of course the robot can also be controlled by another software, the CAN protocol is well documented.
Starter Set: The enable an easy start the starter set contains all necessary parts: the robot arm, a stand, a two finger gripper, the mains adapter, USB to CAN adapter and the CPRog software. Only the laptop is not included.
