ServoCity is now offering the Nomad 4WD off-road chassis
kit which is an easy to assemble
robotic platform capable of going
places a normal chassis can’t.
What makes this chassis kit different is not only its vast
amount of attachment points for various add-ons, but also
the fact that it is easily and fully configurable.
The chassis is equipped with four 5. 4" diameter by
2. 25" wide heavy duty tires, four super duty/ball-bearing
planetary gearmotors with full metal gears, and a ball-bearing pivot suspension. Also included in the 4WD
chassis kit is a large central ABS plastic body with two
large access panels that open up to a cavity large enough
for a 7.2V NiCAD/NiMH or other LiPo battery and
electronics to fit comfortably. Its central body also has a
multitude of 0.77" hub patterns and cutouts at the bottom
to run motor wires through. Since it is made out of ABS
plastic, drilling holes for additional mounting options is
simple. Retail price is $279.99.
Also available from ServoCity is the Force servo, which is a new type of a servo drive for
remotely controlled devices. The majority of modern
servo drives maintain a controlled position of the
arm. Other servo drives are responsible for cyclic
rotation with variable speed. Force Servo or F-Servo
is a servo drive with controllable action force.
The value of force is proportionate to the control
signal and does not depend on the position of the
arm. A force sensor (dynamometer) is used for controlling
the force. This arm simplifies many mechanical devices
where it's necessary to control the action force created by
a servo drive or the action force of a mechanism
controlled by a servo drive. When used instead of a servo
drive with a controlled position of the arm, the arm makes
it possible to improve the technical characteristics of many
devices and mechanisms.
The key areas of application are remotely controlled
light drones, robots, radio-controlled models, and rotation
devices for video cameras. Retail price is $24.99 each.
Lemos/Radiometrix now has available the new Mini- MURS (Multi-Use Radio Service) NiM1B-154.570-5-
12.5-MURS which is a frequency programmable narrow
band transceiver that offers a low power reliable data link
in a Lemos/Radiometrix transceiver standard pinout and
footprint. It is suitable for licensed and unlicensed VHF
allocations and Federal
Commission (FCC) part 90
and part 95.
