  • Dynamixel Sensor Module AX-S1
    Excellent product if you need to expand your robots senses
    Review by Ronald
    Ordered this product to give my robot more sensory capability after exhausting all 6 ports on my cm530. The fact that it chains to the servos yet is able to give my robot 3 more IR sensors is awesome
    Thumbs up

  • Dynamixel AX-12A Smart Serial Servo
    Good Torque at this price
    Review by skg
    Better torque and design at this price than other hobby servos. Easy control, scalability with daisy chaining these motors.

Robot Construction Kits

Posted on April 23, 2014

By Coleman Benson & filled under Robotics Projects & Kits, Where to Start.

Robot Construction Kits can be distinguished from normal robot kits since they use modular parts and allow you to assemble different robots using the same parts. A robot kit on the other hand only allows you to build one robot. Robot construction kits are a great investment because they tend to include everything you need [...]

Dynamixel Pro – Based “Thor-OP” Humanoid Revealed

Posted on October 18, 2013

By Coleman Benson & filled under Humanoids, Industry, Military.

When we first saw Robotis release their new line of professional (and large) Dynamixel Pro servo motors, we knew it would not be long until they were used to create larger humanoids. So, not long after their release, “THOR” was revealed; Robotis’ child-sized humanoid entry into the DARPA humanoid challenge. The latest iteration of this [...]

Basics: How Do I Differentiate Between Robotic Kits?

Posted on March 28, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Where to Start.

Robots and artificial devices have always interested humans as they are the first devices mankind has created that has the potential to match and surpass our own abilities. For this reason, many technologically advanced companies have created robot kits in order to satisfy people’s need and desire for devices that emulate human thought, form and [...]

... either of the smart servos servos should work. Do you have a preference between using an Arduino board to control the servo, or a computer? Robotis doesn't seem to provide any sample code for the Arduino, so if that's your preference, we would recommend HerkuleX. Dongbu has provided some ...

... make the frame from scratch or choose actuators like those suggested before which have a bracket system available. http://www.robotshop.com/en/robotis-en.html?cat=42 If you take this route, ensure the brackets you select are for the right motor as not all are compatible with each other.

Or Can I even use this arduino interface (http://www.robotshop.com/en/robotis-ax-12-cds55xx-arduino-interface.html) in the first place,when my servos are Ax-18A instead of Ax-12A? Can I find any exapmles of the Ax-18A ...

... torso weigh 4Kg? The Darwin-Op is considerably taller, uses much more powerful servos and still only weights 2.9Kg: http://www.robotshop.com/en/robotis-darwin-op-advanced-humanoid-robot-deluxe.html Although calculations are needed, you will likely have issues using the AX-12A on a 4Kg robot.

It is obviously doable for building bipeds with AX-12A. Have you looked at the Bioloid Premium Robot Kits? http://www.robotshop.com/en/robotis-bioloid-premium-robot-kit.html As for how much weight it can hold? Not sure. I know that many up on Trossen have built Bipeds. I know that many have ...

... Also what to use may depend on what type of servos you used. Did you use standard hobby servos like the Hitec HS645mg? Or something different like Robotis AX12?

We haven't seen this problem before. We would recommend submitting a question with the manufacturer: http://www.robotis.com/xe/qna_en

In the meantime, maybe someone from our community might have dealt with this issue before.

The connectors are unfortunately not standard and that cable cannot be used. Robotis offers a variety of compatible 3-pin cables, the longest of which is 200mm (7.87 inches) and 1100mm (43.4 inches) and nothing between. They don't offer the connectors separately ...
