Unlock the unlimited possibilities of robotics with BRACCIO!

You can assemble your BRACCIO in a multitude of ways. Because it is designed for versatility, the BRACCIO can also support various objects on the end of the arm. The included BRACCIO shield allows you to hook up the servos directly to your Arduino board.

The BRACCIO can be used to:

  • Hold your camera so you can take remote images, capture a moving timelapse or even track a subject
  • Hold your phone/tablet or other forms of displays
  • Create a solar panel system that moves with the sun
Power

It is recommended to power the board via the jack connection with a regulated 5 VDC @ 5000 mA power supply provided in the box.

There is an on-board voltage regulator for higher voltages that protect the Braccio shield.

Note: The protection doesn’t work for the Arduino Yun if you put the bridge between Vin and 5V on the Arm Robot Shield V1 (greater version of are called Braccio shield and has a power switch on the top of the shield)
