Mouser Electronics, Inc., the New Product Introduction (NPI) leader that empowers innovation, has entered into a global distribution agreement with ROBOTIS, a leading developer and manufacturer of modular robotics and specialised smart servos, industrial actuators, manipulators, open-source humanoid platforms and robotic development solutions.
The ROBOTIS portfolio, now available from Mouser Electronics, includes controllers, servos, and accessories that support professional robot developers who design multi-jointed robots for DIY, education, industry, and research sectors. ROBOTIS OpenCM9.04 open-source controllers run on an STMicroelectronics STM32 F1 microcontroller with a 32-bit ARM Cortex-M3 core. The controllers incorporate the OpenCM integrated development environment (IDE), cross-platform software based on ROS and C/C++ that allows developers to easily program the controllers. ROBOTIS technology takes advantage of the latest technical advances in single-board computers (SBCs), depth sensors, and 3D-printing technology in the robotics community.
Mouser is also stocking ROBOTIS’ DYNAMIXEL smart actuator system, a series of modular devices for creating and connecting powerful and flexible robotic joints. DYNAMIXEL devices are high-performance actuators with a fully integrated DC motor, reduction gearhead, controller, driver, and network in a single servo module actuator. The programmable and networkable devices allow developers to read and monitor actuator status through a data packet stream and enables solutions based on intelligent actuator feedback. To support the DYNAMIXEL products, Mouser offers several lines of TTL/RS-485 (3P/4P) communication cable sets and accessories. These highly flexible cables feature high pull-out force connectors and a sheath design that resists against breaking and peeling.
