Powerful Bot Board/SSC-32/BAP28•
Includes everything you need to build a hexapod robot•
Prewritten programs available•
The Lynxmotion AH2 Hexapod Robot Kit with PS2 Remote - AH2CA-KT
uses an advanced mechanical advantage leg design. This leg design provides the maximum holding strength with the minimum current draw. The two DOF (degree of freedom) allows this robot to be steered like a tank. Forward, reverse, gradual and in place turning is supported. The robot uses 12 HS-422 servos for the legs. This kit includes everything you need to build a robot to control using the Bot Board/SSC-32/BAP28 with PS2 robot controller (sold separately).
The robot is made from ultra-tough laser-cut PVC structural components, custom injection molded components, and high-quality aluminum Servo Erector Set brackets.
Controlling the Robot
The combo kit comes with the SSC-32, Bot Board II, and BASIC Atom Pro 28. By offloading the servo pulse generation and sequence movement timing to the SSC-32 the BASIC Atom has plenty of power to do some really cool things. The current programming allows the robot to walk from PS2 control or autonomously.
The robot is compatible with the following batteries and chargers.Chargers•
NiCad & Ni-MH Universal Smart Charger Batteries•
6.0 Volt Ni-MH 1600mAh Battery Pack•
6.0 Volt Ni-MH 2800mAh Battery Pack
SSC-32 Servo Sequencer Utility (created using FlowBotics Studio)
The Lynxmotion SSC-32 Servo Controller board can be easily controlled with the new SSC-32 Servo Sequencer Utility. It is available as a free downloadable utility which makes it easy to experiment with robotics and animatronics. It can be found in the Useful Links section.
This utility is an example of the type of program which can be built using
, which includes this program as an open source demo project. The SSC-32 Servo Sequencer Utility program enables you to easily move servo motors, calibrate their position, store and playback motion sequences, upgrade the SSC-32 firmware and more.
