Robotnik SUMMIT-XL HL robust mobile robot for research and development

Contact us for pricing

SUMMIT-XL HL is a robust, customisable and versatile mobile robot with high performance both indoors and outdoors thanks to its two kinematic configurations, using either rubber or mecanum wheels. The ability to carry loads of 65Kg and variable suspension settings make this platform ideal for more demanding r&d applications.  The omnidirectional configuration uses mecanum wheels on an independent suspension system. These can be easily switched for rubber wheels (rim mount) to implement the skid-steering configuration, providing increased mobility and manoeuvrability.

With the purchase of a SUMMIT-XL HL you will receive a free one month licence for the online course How to master Summit-XL HL with ROS

SUMMIT-XL HL can navigate autonomously or be teleoperated employing a PTZ camera that transmits video in real-time.

Odometry is computed by four encoders and a high precision angular sensor mounted inside the chassis.

Options for sensors include a Hokuyo laser scanner and a range of RTK-DGPS kits. It also has internal (USB; RS232 and GPIO) and external connectivity (USB,RJ45, power supplies 5,12 VDC and battery) so that custom components can be integrated with ease. 

Pre-loaded with ROS for ease of integration and implementation for customer needs. 

Robotnik mobile robots are highly customisable with a range of accessories and components available. From arms and manipulators to cameras and LiDAR – contact us to discuss your requirements.

Loan finance

Level Five Supplies is pleased to offer finance as a payment option, iur appointed partners can work with you to make equipment purchase more straightforward.

There are many reasons to consider using finance:

  1. Improves Cash Flow: When you finance your equipment, your cash isn’t tied up in the equipment. Instead, it’s free for other investments that will grow your business, produce income, and ensure the equipment you acquire earns profits over its lifetime.
  2. Preserves Other Lines of Credit: Tomorrow can bring many opportunities. Financing equipment means you’ll have the credit available (either from the bank or other sources) to take advantage of future opportunities.
  3. Hedges against inflation: Your monthly payment remains the same over the term of the lease or loan. Money paid later in the term usually have less purchasing power than those paid at the beginning of the term…so you pay for today’s equipment needs with tomorrow’s lower-value currency.
  4. Provides 100% financing: Even “soft costs” such as training, shipping, installation, and maintenance agreements can usually be included. So you can rest easy knowing that these associated costs won’t disrupt your cash flow.
  5. Simplifies equipment changes: Hiring additional workforce? Increasing efficiency? Additional equipment can easily be added to your existing loan or lease. Or, if you’re trying to stay ahead of the competition by staying ahead of technologies, the equity in your financed equipment can be applied toward the loan or lease of new equipment. These options solve the problems of obsolescence – and make your job easier.
  6. Eliminates hidden charges: You have no compensating balances, no closing costs, and no blanket liens or other restrictive covenants that banks use to increase customers’ cost. What you see is what you get.
  7. Offers excellent rates: Our finance partner rates are highly competitive.
  8. Saves on taxes: Depending on the type of finance agreement you select, as much as 100% of your payments may be tax deductible.
  9. Offers many payment programs: Our finance partners work for you, not us. You choose the type of loan or lease that best fits your needs, and you select the length of the loan or lease term.

The finance agreement is between you and the lender, and we don’t take commission or referral fees – but we’ve done the preparatory work of allocating a broker for the US, and another for Europe, explaining the technology, validating supplier products and explaining how the technology will be used so your application process is simplified and focused entirely on the financials.

The initial part of the process usually takes less than an hour and means that you can spread the cost of a higher value purchase of equipment like this over several months or even years, allowing you to better plan your project or department budgets, but also means you can get what you need over the coming years, not just what you can afford today.
