This economical, yet fully functional, industrial-quality, 4-axis robot
is ideal for training and research in many educational applications.
With a payload lifting capacity of up to 5.5 pounds (2.5Kg.), and a tip
speed of 8 in./sec. (0.2 meter/sec.), its performance and abilities approach
that of industrial devices. A pneumatic, vacuum or stepper motor gripper
can be provided. An electric gripper is standard.
The PC-based controller uses PID control algorithms and can support two
additional axes excluding the gripper. Programming is done using specially
developed, PC-based, Robot Programming Language, or using C for low level
Teaching can be achieved through off-line programming, joint space programming
and coordinate space programming. The device is capable of point-to-point
and continuous path movements.
Whether used as a stand-alone training device, or in combination with
other DAC automation-related training products in a complete manufacturing
system, this device will help make training in this fundamental industrial
technology more informative, productive and realistic.
