Change Gripper Firmware


Can I change the newton gripper to make it open by default when it is powered, right now it retracts on startup. If yes, please provide the new files to make the changes and guide to install it.

Thank you!

Hi @Jay -
The gripper only moves to the open position if it receives a signal to do so! If you’re using it with an ArduSub device, try changing the SERVO_TRIM parameter for the channel you’ve got the Gripper connected to, if it is 1500 the gripper will remain in its current position on startup. If set to 1100 or 1900 the gripper will open or close on startup.

Hi @tony-white,

understood, thank you for clarifying it!
