  • Custom AL5D robotic arm for Project Lead The Way (PLTW)
  • Works perfectly with the free software FlowArm PLTW (Download)
  • Advanced inverse kinematics positioning control using mouse
  • Includes medium duty wrist rotate upgrade
  • Includes new SSC-32U servo controller board
  • Includes everything you need to control the arm from a personal computer (USB port)
  • Assembled version available Lynxmotion SES-V1 AL5D PLTW Robotic Arm (5 DoF) Assembled

The Lynxmotion SES-V1 AL5D PLTW Robotic Arm (5 DoF) Kit is a package made specifically for PLTW schools. It includes a complete AL5D robotic arm, along with a medium duty wrist rotate upgrade, SSC-32U servo controller board and a USB cable. The SSC-32U board means no more USB-to-serial adapter and no more 9V battery.

The Lynxmotion AL5D 4 Degrees of Freedom Robotic Arm delivers fast, accurate, and repeatable movement. Lynxmotion designed an affordable system based on a time tested, rock solid design that will last and last. Everything needed to assemble and operate the robot is included in the kit, along with a medium duty wrist rotate, USB cable, extra servo cable and FlowArm PLTW software. The aluminum robotic arm is made using Lynxmotion's Servo Erector Set components for the ultimate flexibility and expandability. The kit consists of black anodized aluminum brackets, aluminum tubing and hubs, custom injection molded components, and precision laser-cut Lexan components.

Project Lead The Way (PLTW) is the nation's leading science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) solution and is used in over 5,000 schools across the U.S. The PLTW Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) curriculum includes creating an assembly line and use of the Lynxmotion AL5D arm. This software was created so students would have full control of the arm without having to spend significant time programming, and integrate it easily into a larger manufacturing / assembly system.

FlowArm PLTW (Download) has a powerful pattern sequencer component (normally found only in the full version of FlowBotics Studio) that is used to create reusable patterns within minutes or hours, instead of days or weeks. The sequencer also allows you to vary the speed of playback of a routine.

decent arm, horrible hardware

the arm itself is good and pretty easy to put together. The instructions could definitely be much better, but the hardware it comes with is horrible, be prepared to buy your own nuts and bolts.

bras décent, matériel horrible

le bras lui-même est bon et assez facile à assembler. Les instructions pourraient certainement être bien meilleures, mais le matériel fourni est horrible, préparez-vous à acheter vos propres écrous et boulons.

Okay arm, could improve instruction manual

The arm is not too hard to assemble. It would be nice if the software would connect automatically to all laptops and that technical support could have a number to call or video feature. Also, some parts of the instruction manual assumed certain things that they would expect you to know so I think it could be a bit more detailed. Overall, once you get the hang of it the arm becomes easier to deal with.

What a fantastic introduction to robotics

Bought as an introduction to robotics, with the intention later on of integrating it with a hexapod. Great kit. took a little while to get used to the assembly methods for this style of construction but overall it was a very positive experience. Online assembly instructions were quite good, but it involved having several of the guides open simultaneously. I would certainly recommend it as an introduction. Flowarm is a gem also, easy to use and works well with the arm.


Nice product and Support
