Robot Arm Kit for Romi
Empower your Romi robot to manipulate its surroundings with this robotic arm accessory kit! The kit contains everything you need to build the arm, including a micro gripper and three servos—one for controlling the height of the arm, one for controlling the tilt of the gripper, and one for actuating the gripper paddles themselves. All three servos are specially modified to provide access to their feedback potentiometers, enabling higher-level closed-loop control of all three joints.

- What are the wires coming out of my servo?
Most standard radio control (RC) servos have three wires, each a different color. Usually, they are either black, red, and white, or they are brown, red, and orange/yellow:
- brown or black = ground (GND, battery negative terminal)
- red = servo power (Vservo, battery positive terminal)
- orange, yellow, white, or blue = servo control signal line
Please check the specs for your servo to determine the proper power supply voltage, and please take care to plug the servo into your device in the proper orientation (plugging it in backwards could break the servo or your device).
Note: Some of the servos we carry also have an optional fourth green wire that is separate from the three standard ones. This wire provides access to the feedback potentiometer, allowing you to directly measure the position of the output. The servos with this extra wire have "with Position Feedback" at the ends of their product names. The picture below is an example of such a servo.
