Sign up. The original DC motor can be compensated for within the micro if you calculate the backlash and 'overshoot' your maplin robotic arm point in either direction.

The 'pressure' sensor was nothing more then a simple current monitor, eventually i used a small Sparkfun current sensor module that was cheap. I used a 5 amp module which i modified. I first removed the plated through connectors to use one side, this effectively made it maplin robotic arm 2.


A little more hacking with a modelling knife brought the module down to about Ma for full output 0 to Mv output for 0 to Ma It didnt need to be accurate just needed to feedback the amount of stalling current on the grippers. The only weak point of the whole arm IS the gripper assembly. I have seen more robust ones for sale and that will be the next mod. Newer Post Older Maplin robotic arm Home.


You can cut off one plug of your jumper wires and solder maplin robotic arm to each connect of maplin robotic arm pot, and plug the other one into the Motor Shield. Or, if you have some RC three-wire cables around like these female-to-female connectors that I've used hereyou can just cut them in half and use them for less wire clutter and confusion.

Support for OWI/Maplin USB Robotic Arm

The Motor Shield pins aren't quite the standard spacing, so you have to bend maplin robotic arm a tiny bit, but it's no big deal. In the picture, I've attached the base rotation sensor with some standard 22 gauge metal plumbers tape that you can get in any hardware store.

About this product. The Raspberry Pi is taken incredibly seriously in engineering, with thousands of small boards around the world embedded Navigate into the folder with 'cd' maplin robotic arm type "sudo python setup. This is also assuming you have python pre-installed on your Pi. Download the PyUSB library. Boot up your pi, login and type "startx".

The current version was written prior to the official Raspberry Pi display screen becoming available. ShoulderDown 1.

Nor did I expect it to. Simple UI Hey, I bought OWI kit from amazon. It seems the speed of the motors is a bit slow.

Are there any methods to increase the speed of the motors? Something maplin robotic arm passing more current. But i doubt more current may burn the motors.

Reply 3 years ago on Introduction. The speed is slow probably because the arm applied a relative high load to the motor.

If nothing happens, download Xcode and try again. My kiwi PyCon slides for the robotic arm demonstration.Shop MAPLIN Robotic Arm Kit USB PC Interface Construct Precision Educational.
