About the Robot Arm
Lynxmotion’s 6th generation articulated robotic arm is intended as a hobby / scale version of an industrial robotic arm and is designed around the fully configurable Lynxmotion Smart Servo motors and Lynxmotion Servo Erector Set (SES v2) modular construction system. This versatile setup facilitates customization and expansion for applications through the use of additional brackets, electronics, sensors and more, and adding additional degrees of freedom or changing the gripper is straightforward.

Although well suited for use on a desk for development and experimentation, the arm can be easily fitted on a mobile robot and powered using a 3S (11.1V) LiPo battery (sold separately) with XT60 connector. The included LSS Adapter electronics board makes connecting to an Arduino shield compatible board, Raspberry Pi, XBee or other serial device easy. 

Lynxmotion Smart Servos (LSS)
The Lynxmotion Smart Servo (LSS) motors were designed and optimized for articulated robotic joints and ease of use. The custom LSS communication protocol is human readable, uses full duplex (dedicated Tx and Rx lines) and selectable baud rates. Optimize the motion by changing the properties of each servo; anything from setting a maximum speed or angular range to the angular acceleration, holding stiffness and more. Each servo can be queried for a wide variety of real-time values or configured settings, including sensor feedback from the absolute encoder (position, speed and more), current, voltage and temperature. .

Arm Control Options

We now have arm control options. which each have their own unique operating methodology and feature sets. 
  • The new LSS FlowArm is a stand-alone application which provides a graphical interface for controlling the LSS Articulated Arm. You can also create and save sequences using handheld teach mode, coordinates and more.
  • Arduino library: The LSS Arduino library can be obtained from the Arduino IDE and provides examples of how to control each servo.
  • Python Library: The LSS Python library can be obtained from the Lynxmotion GitHub account and provides examples of how to communicate with the LSS motors.

Important!
To keep costs down and to ensure you have the most up to date manual and assembly guides, we are not providing printed materials with the arm. These are provided online on the Lynxmotion wiki, along with CAD models and more.
