The ViperX is an robot arm wich is based on the DYNAMIXEL X-Series and is suitable for development, research aswell as for industrial usage. The robot arm gets delivered already fully constructed and has a repeatability of only a few millimeter due to the high-quality processing. The servomotors are controlled by the ROBOTIS OpenMC 9.04-C or DYNAMIXEL U2D2, depending on the usage. The OpenCM9.04 is equipped with a CortexM3 MCU and 72MHz and cen be programmed with the ROBOTIS development environment or the Arduino IDE.
DYNAMIXEL X Actor
The DYNAMIXEL servomotors that are used have a very high torque, a RS485 Bus and are therefore predistined for the usage in robot arms. Following ther are some charts showing the DYNAMIXEL X-Series performance.
Due to the wide spread of possibilities, that the PincherX robot arm has to offer, the gripper can be modified application-specific. You can choose of a collection of different gripper fingers or design custom grippers. The grippers are 3D printed and can be optimized indivudally , meaning that the customization is endless and there are no other service provider required. Following there is a selection of possible grippers that can be downloader for free.
The mechanical system consist of high-strength lightweight parts, industrial bearings and 3D printable components. This leads to the Interbotix ViperX beeing very light but also very resistant. Another beneficial aspect of the low weight ist, that the repeatability gets increased due to the low inertia.
