My first Controler test for the Extreme extendble Gipper Arm. the Claw is 3D Printed Design by TEXMEX . Rest is a old Selfi Stick and a Motor from a Mig Welder. MG996 Servo for rotate the Arm and for the Main Up and Down the lynx Motion HD-Servo who can handle a Lot of
torque. Finaly i add some extra 3D Parts to attach the Servos to the Arm. Electronic is a Mega2560 with USB Host Shield and two Motor driver Boards.
I use the Shadow MD Stick with a special Mode to control the Arm.
Next Step is to make some PCB for better wiring.
Here a Link to my Build Blog at ASTROMECH.NET
I motify the SHADOW MD sketch to support that Gripper Control from Navigon Foot Controller and in my Sketch Sabertooth is commend out for Roboteq Controler as Drive Control via PWM Pulse.
Please take care of it and feel free to contact me if you need support for that.
