Largest inventory of original vintage robot parts for the Heathkit HERO robots We have the remaining inventory of HERO robot parts and most of them are still in the same parts bins they were in at the factory. Everything from the smallest fasteners, electronic components, wiring, up to metal frame pieces are all available. We can look up parts by the original Heath part #, generic part #, or a description. Both new and used parts are on hand. Just let us know what you’re looking for and we’ll do our best to help.
Documentation is available for the HERO line of robots (HERO 1, HERO Jr, HERO 2000, and Arm Trainer) so if you are missing any (or all) manuals please contact us. The Main ROM listing book for the HERO 1 is updated to include the latest V1.U and V1.3 Main ROM chips and now has the full ROM listing for the HERO 1. A similar book is also available for the HERO Jr which covers the latest V1.6 Main ROM.
Some of the available upgrades for the HERO 2000 include the HERO 2000 Memory/IDE controller board, extra memory, original Autodock kits, latest Main 2.0.3 Main ROM set, and the DEMO ROM.
For the HERO Jr there is the latest V1.6 Main ROM set with a Y2K fix so the robot can say the correct date. Another popular upgrade is the “Master Cartridge” that has all twelve of the HERO Jr cartridges in one. It is very convenient to have all of the HERO Jr programs with the robot and easily switch between them.
There are quite a few upgrades on hand for the HERO 1. All of the option ROM’s (AutoMode, Utility, BASIC), the Memory expansion kit, extra memory, Serial Interface, and the new USB Interface which is shown below.
We will be updating the list of the common upgrades for these robots and some of the available parts soon. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t see a particular item listed. If you need any robot parts or upgrades many are just an e-mail away!
