System description

breadboard (Source: DFKI)

The Orion 7P by Schilling Robotics is a hydraulic deep sea underwater manipulator which is currently used in many industrial heavy workclass ROVs (remotely operated vehicles). It has an operational depth of up to 6000 meters. The control which is shipped with the manipulator is a manual master slave controller. Within the CManipulator project this manual controller was replaced by a computer control. The hydraulic manipulator is driven by a hydraulic pressure unit with 7KW.
