Dynamixel Pro servos

October 12, 2012

Robotis is coming out with a new line of high-end servos called “Dynamixel Pro”.  They’ve released a teaser video (below).

Trossen Robotics also posted a few tidbits of information on their blog.  They claim 10X higher torque and precision over the DXL series, the previous high-end Robotis servos, as well as some other nifty features like current-based torque control and support for CAN-Bus and RS-485 communications.

This RoboSavvy Forum thread has also been discussing the new line.  One poster speculates that 1 Dynamixel Pro servo will cost as much as an entire Bioloid Premium kit.  Nobody knows for sure, but being Robotis, it’s a good bet that these servos won’t come cheap.  On the other hand, they’re also likely to be very high quality.  Fortunately for them (if not for us), the industrial and academic markets they’re targeting with this line don’t tend to be price-sensitive.

Check out the video below, and feel free to share your own speculation in the comments.

    High price dynamixels are good for university projects or teams. Torque of 320kgcm is best to lift a mini cooper.
