-===== RH7D Eros Hand =====+===== RH5D and RH7D Child Size Hands =====
-The RH7D introduces the first anthropomorphic hand design model with opposable thumb control ​and full spherical wrist joint.+The RH5D and RH7D are child size, anthropomorphic hand models ​with opposable thumb control.
-The RH7D is currently available in two variants: +Both models have the same external dimensions and design and the internal electronics are also the sameFOr this reaosn documentation for both models is combined.
-  * The [[http://​www.seedrobotics.com/​rh7d-compact.html|RH7D COMPACT]], a smaller form factor version with the same design and the full 7 degrees of freedom +
-  * The [[http://​www.seedrobotics.com/​rh7d-t40.html|RH7D T40]] with higher power actuators and larger palm.+
-Both models share the same technical platform and introduce the Eros Architecture, the next generation of Seed Robotics electronics,​ designed for extensibility ​and for a larger number ​of actuators.+The difference between ​the twois that the RH5D lacks the Wrist flexion ​and Wrist Adduction Degrees ​of Freedom (and the corrsponding ​actuators). The RH7D has these Degrees of Freedom and as such offers a full spherical wrist joint.
-In terms of protocol compatibility and support they are quite similar to the RH4D as they use and support the same protocols.\\ +The Knowledge Base is in continuous evolution ​and growth. If there'​s anything ​you need, that's not yet covered hereplease email us through support@seedrobotics.com and we'll be happy to assist ​you.
-However as of 2017 we're introducing a redesigned firmware architecture ​in the Actuators ​and main board, for improved efficiency. This means the Control tables are slightly different. If you're coming from the RH4D, we recommend ​you read [[rh7d:​firmware_differences_from_4dAres|Firmware architecture review RH4D Ares vs RH7D Eros]].+
-The Knowledge Base for the RH7D is quickly being built.\\ +==== Getting Started with your Unit ==== 
-As it shares much functionality with the RH4D, you can find some common information in the RH4D wiki.\\ +  * [[rh7d:​unpacking_mechanical_assembly|Unpacking and Mechanical Assembly]]

-==== Shared documentation with the RH4D ==== 
-The links below point to the documentation for the RH4D unit. However because both units share most of the functionality and firmware ​features ​the information is the same.\\ +==== Advanced ​features ​====
