Repeatability measurements correspond to a radius within which, for a given input, the robot will return. Accuracy asserts how close to the expected target a measurement (generally a pose when discussing a robot) is. In many cases, repeatability is the only concern for robots because accuracy can often be compensated in the implementation of an application. See this article from our partner for more detail.
Gen3 ingress protection (IP) rating is IP33.
First digit: Solid particle protection
3 = >2.5 mm / 0.098 in = Tools, thick wires, etc.
Second digit: Liquid ingress protection
3 = Spraying water = Water falling as a spray at any angle up to 60° from the vertical shall have no harmful effect, utilizing either: a) an oscillating fixture or b) a spray nozzle with a counterbalanced shield.
The repeatability measurement for the 6 and 7 DoF configurations for the Gen3 robots are respectively 0.1 mm and 1.0 mm @ 2 σ. These statistics are only valid for calibrated robots, which means only for the fixed base configuration.
Gen3 has three options that can be mixed and matched to your preferences. You can have either six or seven degrees of freedom, a fixed or quick-connect base, and a wrist with or without an integrated vision module.
Yes, you can power your Kinova robot with a battery. Doing so requires a 24 V battery that meets the product requirements. Please refer to the user guide for the proper way to connect your Kinova robot to a battery.
