RoboteX® Prepares for Launch of Robotic Manipulator Arm Accessory

Avatar Manipulator Arm to Provide EOD Functionality at Low Cost

RoboteX, Inc.® is preparing to launch its newest product – the AVATAR® Manipulator Arm. Developed alongside the brand-new AVATAR® II robot, the AVATAR® Manipulator Arm will be the most affordable, most intuitive robotic arm on the market.

With a projected release of June 2012, the five-axis AVATAR® Manipulator Arm will allow first responders to interact with potentially dangerous objects from a safe distance. It will open most latch-type door knobs, and it will be able to lift objects up to 8 lb in weight. The arm will also come equipped with its own color, IR-capable camera for enhanced visibility and reconnaissance abilities.

Demand for the AVATAR® Manipulator Arm has been high, and RoboteX has said that the arm’s initial stock is already sold out. RoboteX is still accepting orders for the next batch of AVATAR® Manipulator Arms, which are currently slated for delivery in mid-to-late 2012. AVATAR® Manipulator Arms are available for order with all new purchases of the AVATAR® II robot.
