MRISAR's 180 Degree Robot Arm Exhibit
180 Degree Robot Arm Exhibit is a 39" long robotic arm with a 180 degree shoulder, horizontal range of motion, complete with exhibit case, control panel and power supply. This exhibit has 5 different voice repeater functions that explain different challenges the user can undertake.
The exhibit is designed to be visually stunning, educational and usable by virtually any age of museum visitor. As with all of our robotics exhibits this exhibit also conveys a wide variety of elements that are important to STEM education. Each side of the upper frame of the exhibit is a window made of clear poly-carbonate to make it visible from all sides, making it ideal for mid floor locations.
The arm is protected by limit controls and spring loaded for shock. The limit controls use simple logic to avoid over travel, as opposed to expensive and hard to repair computer guided systems. The wrist, shoulder and elbow ranges of motion are operated by two joystick assemblies. The exhibit is configured as a demonstration arm to illustrate remote handling applications for robotics. Remote handling robots are used by industry, aerospace and commercial establishments to extend human capabilities in hazardous situations.
The robot arm that fits in the case can either be our 5 finger arm that has 9 degrees of freedom, or our 3 finger arm that has 5 degrees of freedom. The arm has pressure sensitive and end of travel limits, and can adapt to any arrangement of objects stacked in its path. It is made of light weight 6061 Aluminum. This arm is totally open framed for educational viewing and based closely on the proportions of an actual human arm. It is especially designed with safety features and force limits.
The approximate size of the case is 72" high x 70" long x 44" wide. This complete exhibit includes a quality built electronic-electromechanical robot arm, fully enclosed exhibit case for the arm, support electronics, visual support materials, maintenance information and schedule, activities and control panel.
