It can sometimes prove complicated mounting a camera or sensors onto a robot or robotic arm. You can’t always get just the right position or height. That’s where this gooseneck comes in. It allows easily-adjustable, modifiable positioning.
The gooseneck on offer here is reinforced with a thick central wire for greater rigidity and resistance to forces. The end mounts offer a Bioloid/Dynamixel compatible pattern of 16 mm holes allowing the gooseneck to be used with a robot running with Dynamixel servo motors.
Although the original purpose of the gooseneck was for mounting a camera onto a Dynamixel robotic arm, it also comes complete with a baseplate allowing it to stand on a workbench. Two circular plates are also supplied on the ends of the gooseneck so it can be fixed to a robot, wall, table, ceiling, etc.
