Control Arm and Force Feedback
Clansman Dynamics has developed and patented a Control Arm and force feed back system which solves well known problems that have existed with competitors' machines since they were first developed 25 years ago. The system uses the standard Master Arm / Slave Arm principle but with a completely different, and now well proven, arrangement.
Tired arms arise for 2 reasons:
With competitors' manipulators the operator grips the control handle and has no support for his own lower arm. The Clansman arrangement provides 100% support to the operator's arm regardless of the position of the Master Arm and does not tire the operator's arm.
With competitors' manipulators the operator always has to overcome a load caused by seal friction and the force of the force feed back system itself. With the new Clansman arrangement the operator only has to work against the tiny friction force from low friction bearings while he keeps the Master Arm synchronised with the Slave Arm. The Clansman system of force feed back does not tire the operator.
