Force-Moment-Sensor for easy Applications

The sensor can be used for easy assembly applications, at manually-guided robots, or in the field of service robotics.

The FTL sensor from SCHUNK is an attractively priced Force Moment sensor that is a cost effective solution for simpler applications. The FTL is ideally suited for implementing very compact solutions because the housing is very compact with minimal interfering contours and the electronic processor is fully integrated into the module. This force sensor has six independent load measurement ranges allowing for measurement of forces up to 150N and moments up to 3Nm yet is built heavy enough to withstand up to three times the normal load and provide accuracies of better than 3%.


The signal is scanned with an internal sampling rate of 1.5 kHz at 12 bit analogue resolution enabling highly dynamic control concepts. The sensor can cope with a short-term overload which can be up to three times higher than the normal load.

Configuration and evaluation are possible by RS232 or CAN bus. The sensor can be used for easy assembly applications, at manually-guided robots, or in the field of service robotics. The sensor requires a battery-servable power supply from 12 - 24 V DC, making it suitable for mobile applications.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
