NOTE: We are designing a new Gripper, as this one has been discontinued. We don't yet have an available date. Please check back!
Do you want to teach your Boe-Bot or ActivityBot Robot new tricks, like playing fetch? Our Gripper Kit adds pick-up and carry capability to your robot at the right price. The Gripper features parallel plates that open, clamp onto and lift objects all with one cleverly utilized Parallax Standard Servo. Since the Gripper's servo plugs right into a servo port on the robot's development board, no additional battery pack is needed. The lightweight but sturdy aluminum, brass and plastic Gripper hardware weighs less than 7 ounces.
- Clamp onto objects up to 2 in (5 cm) wide
- Lift up to 4 ounces (113 grams) without counterweight
- Lift up to 14 ounces (397 grams) with counterweight (not included)
Note: Measurements are approximate. The Gripper Kit is compatible with the BASIC Stamp Boe-Bot Robot and Propeller ActivityBot Robot (each sold separately). It is not compatible with the Robot Shield Kit with Arduino. Please view the Gripper Kit documentation below for a complete parts list.
