Puma 560 Robotic Manipulator

Donated by Unmanned Solutions, Inc.

The Puma 560 is a six degree of freedom robot manipulator. The end-effector of the robot arm can reach a point within its workspace from any direction. The six degrees of freedom are controlled by six brushed DC servo motors, each coupled with a 500-1000 count 3 channel encoder and a potentiometer. The robot can determine its global postion from the given feedback information. The original controller of this Puma 560 has been retrofitted. The robot currently can be controlled remotely through the network.
