Thank you

Thank you for choosing the BarrettHand™ BH8-262 Grasper™. The BarrettHand™ is designed to overcome the inflexibility of conventional grippers with microprocessor-enabled dexterity while maintaining durability, compactness, and ease of use. The BarrettHand™ is a multi-fingered Grasper™ with the dexterity to secure target objects of different sizes, shapes, and orientations. Rather than rely on pinching gripper friction or permanent gripper-jaw shape customization the BarrettHand™ gently envelops the object, securely locking its joints until commanded to release.

System integration with any robotic arm is fast and simple. Even with its low, 1.2-kg, weight and compact form, it is totally self-contained. The BH8-262 model uses industry-standard serial communications, which has been the common denominator of communications, for guaranteed universal compatibility. The BarrettHand™ features a common cross-platform compatible API and provides powerful on-board motion control through Barrett’s open Grasper Control Language (GCL) facilitating supervisory control.

The compactness and low weight of the BarrettHand™ assures that the enhanced dexterity does not compromise arm payload. Its low mass and short base-to-grasp-center distance minimize joint loading on the host robot and reduce extraneous arm movements during object reorientation. The custom control-electronics package is contained entirely within the palm shell, reducing electrical wiring to a single cable carrying all communications and motor power.

We hope that you enjoy the versatility and functionality of the BarrettHand™. Please don't hesitate to give feedback and to ask for advice when needed. US+617-252-9000, [service@…>], or http://www.barrett.com/robot/.
