Low-Cost Dexterous Robots With Energid Technology

With seven degrees of freedom, Robai’s Cyton robot arms work like the human arm. Roboticists call robots with more than six axes ‘kinematically redundant’. The extra degrees of freedom give fluid motion, better accuracy, and the ability to reach around obstacles.

The Cyton Gamma 1500 is an arm like no other in its class. The Gamma 1500 has unparalleled payload, reach, and precision in Cyton’s most compact package yet.

Ease of use

The Cyton Gamma 1500 offers increased joint torques. Actin provides active management of the higher torques to optimize strength and lift capacity for the target tasks while ensuring safety and durability. Cyton Gamma requires no external controller box, only a 12v power supply. Setup is as simple as opening your laptop — plug the Cyton into a power outlet and connect the included USB cable to your Windows or Linux computer.

Getting started with Cyton is just as easy. Whether you are looking for an easy way to get your Cyton running on the production line or need to automate a benchtop task, Cyton has a task setup mode to meet your needs.

Interactive GUI

Use the Actin control interface to move the gripper to target positions, either as a freeform move or with constraints applied such as collision avoidance. For the input device, we support a mouse, 3D mouse, joysticks, P5 tracking glove, and others.

Waypoint Sequences

Gripper position/orientation and arm motions can be saved as waypoints and waypoint sequences. Composing task behavior from sets of waypoint sequences and event actions provides a powerful way to put the Cyton to work.

Assistive Mode

Hold the arm and guide it through the set of target positions. At each target position, record a waypoint. Then playback the motion or use the path as part of a more complex set of actions.

Programmatic control

If you will have a program that generates target reach/grasp locations, you can command the arm to move to those positions using the C++ SDK, TCP commands, LabView or ROS interface.
We also have new support for Matlab/Simulink. With any of these programmatic control interfaces, you can send joint-value commands, send desired end-effector position/orientation, or trigger pre-defined waypoint sequences and actions.
