     3Thank you for choosing the !BarrettHand™ 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.
     5System 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.  Communication with the !BarrettHand™ offers a couple of connectivity options.  The BH8-280 hand has high-speed CAN connectivity with Barrett’s universal Puck controllers embedded in the hand.  The BH8-262 model and earlier hands use 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.
     7The 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.
     9We 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, [>], or [].
