The WAM Arm is a highly dexterous, naturally backdrivable manipulator. The only arm sold in the world with direct-drive capability supported by Transparent Dynamics™ between the motors and joints, so its control of contact forces is robust – independent of mechanical force or torque sensors. It is built to outperform conventional robots with unmatched human-like grace and dexterity.
The WAM Arm is available in two main configurations, 4-degree-of-freedom and
Higher Performance than Conventional Manipulators
Matching advanced electronics with inherently backdrivable cable drives results in superbly graceful motions. Barrett owns the technology for the highest performance servo-electronics available in the world today. These electronics are also the smallest (43 grams) and most power-efficient servo-drive electronics available today.
