Introducing the Best Wall-climber Ever
The RoverTec Ibex2 is the ultimate wall-climbing, ceiling traversing Remotely Operated Vehicle.
We have been extremely hard at work developing the next-generation wall-climbing vehicle. Three years and six prototypes later, the ultimate wall-climbing experience is finally available. From the carbon fiber chassis, to the high voltage power system, to the beautiful single-piece body, no compromises were made in the Ibex2 design. The Ibex2 takes advantage of all of the world's latest technological advances, such as the highly efficient brushless motor control, the high energy density lithium polymer batteries, and the 3D printed body and fan duct.
The heart of the Ibex2 is the vacuum fan, which generates the suction that allows it to stick to any vertical or inverted surface. This fan and motor combination has been specially selected for this application, enabling maximum suction force while using minimum energy.
Dont' worry though, all of this technology has been made incredibly easy to use. Hidden underneath, a single charge port allows quick and easy battery charging. On top, a simple, compact power switch turns the Ibex2 on or off. A dual-joystick controller provides intuitive control of forward motion, turning, and fan speed.
We practice what we preach! The very same motor control technology featured in our uDuo motor controllers is built into the Ibex2, and it shows. The drive motors are smooth, quiet, offer more than enough torque, and are very easy to control.
Aerodynamics optimization isn't just for race cars! Much like a race car's front splitter, the Ibex2 uses splitters on all four sides to increase downforce. The additional material doesn't look like much, but it increases the surface area by 17%! This optimizes the aerodynamics and allows the vacuum motor to reach its full potential.
