and manual controller-\R $19,000
Fingers with touch sensors and associated wiring - \R $500
Interface electronics for interfacing arm to PDP 11/45 (max. distance
between computer and arm 10 feet.-\R $4,000
Hardware position servo electronics to enable arm to run without a
software servo system (required if delivery demo required) -\R $1000
Shipping, delivery, installation, and on site demonstration of the
manipulator at destination. -\R $3,000
TOTAL PRICE FOR ALL ITEMS LISTED ABOVE- \R $27,500
The individual prices listed

Due to development uncertainties, we are unable to quote a price and delivery

above system will be wired and set-up so that when this accessory is available, its
installation will require no extensive system modifications.
