Claws, hands, grippers

Hi,<p>I'm looking for a somewhat lightweight (preferably servo powered) claw/gripper that can open at least inches. Lynxmotion has a gripper that looks good but it only opens a little over one inch and doesn't have very long fingers.<p>Thanks,<p>Jason

Re: Wiring schematic programs

I'm more interested in a general program where one can easily create his own obejcts such as servos or other peripherals and easily create numbered ports that can be wired to each other. I don't need all the little specific parts like resistors, capacitors, etc..<p>Does anyone a program that would b...

Re: How do I unsubscribe from a topic?

To stop getting emails, I can delete my first post, the first of the topic, and the topic will disappear.<p>Moderators, is it alright if I do that, or can someone manually remove me from receiving emails?<p>Thanks,<p>Jason

Re: How do I unsubscribe from a topic?

Uh, no, it's not.<p>Pardon my ignorance, but I don't know how. Is there some link somewhere in the thread allowing one to unsubscribe?<p>I understand this is a stupid question, but could someone tell me how to do it?<p>Thanks,<p>Jason

Wiring schematic programs

I'm interested in making a computer wiring diagram for a robot I built, but it is awfully tedious to draw every line in a prog. such as Microsoft Word. I wanted to know if anyone knew of a program that is built to help create wiring schematics.<p>I originally posted this question in the robotics por...

Re: stall current

Ok, thanks.<p>I don't plan on having any of my motors stall in my project. I just wanted to know in advance in case the motors did stall for some reason.<p>I had another electronics question; do you think it is okay to overvolt a motor about 30%, or would it really depend on the motor to be able to ...

stall current

If a motor tries drawing more current than the battery can supply, will the motor heat up or what will happen?<p>Thanks,<p>Jason

no reverse polarity protection

It's pretty annoying that many ESC's and microcontrollers don't have reverse polarity protection. If I were to implement protection on a device, would the only think I have to do be hook up a diode?<p>Thanks,<p>Jason
