Kondo is also releasing group of option parts for the KRS-6003HV that will make life easier for mega-sized humanoid robot builders. First, there are several different case options:
The company will also release metal servo horns:
And, to make things even sweeter, there’s a Double Servo case option that should be perfect for applications that require extreme torque and responsiveness:
Expected Japan list pricing:
KRS-6003HV ICS servo 25,000 yen
KRS-6003HV ICS servo set (6 ea) 133,200 yen
