What is Roboservo®?
Roboservo® is an all-in-one motor module that integrates a motor and the peripherals necessary to control it, such as reduction gears, motors, brakes, encoders, motor drivers, and sensors, into a single package. It significantly reduces man-hours required for parts selection, design, development, and assembly.
The development of "Roboservo®" was supervised by Chiba Institute of Technology's Future Robotics Research Center (fuRo).
Roboservo can be operated simply by connecting a power supply, controller, and communication lines.
Wide Variety of Sensors
Encoders are mounted on each motor and output axis to ensure high controllability.
Current, voltage, temperature, and IMU (3-axis acceleration + 3-axis angular velocity) sensors contribute to control not only the module itself but also the entire system.
To prevent damage due to overload, temperature, overvoltage, and overcurrent limit functions and a collision detection function are implemented using built-in sensors. A built-in de-energized brake enables the angular position to be maintained even when the power is de-energized.
Highly flexible wiring layout with daisy-chain connection and hollow shaft structure
Modules can be daisy-chained to each other to reduce wiring. Furthermore, the hollow structure of the output shaft allows wiring to pass through to mitigate wiring torsion, allowing greater flexibility in the layout of modules and wiring.
Open network support
The following certifications have been obtained.
