Creating robots for outdoor environments is going to be much easier with HEBI’s R-Series smart actuators. They allow you to create robots that can be deployed in wet & dirty environments. R-Series actuators are IP67 rated and come with sensors for position, velocity, and torque control.
As the company explains:
Each actuator integrates a brushless motor, gear reduction, force-sensing, encoders, and control electronics into a compact package that runs on anything from 24V-48V DC and communicates using standard 100Mbps Ethernet.
