The Kinova JACO™ Robot Manipulator (Research Edition), developed by Kinova at its state-of-the-art R&D department, is a revolutionary device designed for multiple professional applications. It is a leading product in a new generation of lightweight portable robotic tools that enables users to interact with their environment with complete safety, freedom, and effectiveness.
JACO Research Edition moves smoothly and silently around 6 degrees of
freedom with unlimited rotation on each axis. The axes are aluminum
compact actuator discs of a unique design. Each JACO robot arm consists
of 2 distinct sets of 3 identical, interchangeable, and easy-to-replace
CADs linked together by a ZIF (zero insertion force) cable. Its main
structure, entirely made of carbon fibre, delivers optimal robustness
and durability as well as a cutting-edge look-and-feel. The arm is
mounted on a standard aluminum extruded support structure that can be
affixed to almost any surface.
The JACO has a total weight of only 5.7kg. This allows a secure and
esthetic fixation yo a mobile platform. Its maximum load is 1.5kg at
mid-range and 1kg when fully extended, which is deal for lifting
everyday objects. It can move up to 15cm/s in cartesian movements and 8
RPM in angular movement.
is also protected from water following IPX2 classification. Its carbon
fibre structure makes it a product that is both extremely strong and
light-weight. The JACO has a reach of 90cm.
Powered by a 24V
battery or a standard electrical plug, it consumes about the same energy
as a light bulb. Its fluid and precise movements are almost completely
silent given its high quality components and precision assembly.
The gripper consists of 3 underactuated fingers that can be individually
controlled. Their unique bi-injected plastic structure endows them with
great flexibility and unrivalled grip. JACO Research Edition technology
allows the fingers to adjust to any object whatever its shape; as a
result, they can gently pick up an egg or firmly grasp a jar. Its hand, can easily and safely handle everyday objects.
JACO Research Edition can be controlled with a computer or Kinova's
3-axis, 7-button joystick. Control is intuitive and allows users to
navigate using 3 different modes: translate, rotate, and grip. Also,
Kinova's Intelligent Singularity Avoidance System always keeps JACO
safely away from unwanted locations. The arm is highly flexible and can
adapt to all user needs.
JACO Research Edition features an advanced application programming interface
(API), enabling programmers to raise their experience to another
level. The API, linked to the arm through a USB 2.0 connector, allows
programmers to configure advanced parameters and integrate the robot to
their own systems. In addition, JACO Research Edition can be controlled
with any one of many navigation systems, providing a broad range of
applications from analyzing central system data to programming automated
Available on Windows and Linux and accessed via USB, the API allows you to access a complete library of functions. With the API, you are able to navigate in a Cartesian or Angular mode, moreover, you can also configure your own control interface.
With its ease of use and complete bank of API functions, students to
learn about robotics and actively carry out robotics projects without
having to be spectators of caged robots.
