ROBOTIQ RELEASES A 6-AXIS FORCE TORQUE SENSOR FOR FORCE CONTROL IN RESEARCH AND ADVANCED MAUFACTURING

Robotiq launches its newest technology: the ROBOTIQ FORCE TORQUE SENSOR FT 150 - a cost-effective 6-Axis Force Torque Sensor with unmatched signal quality, easy integration and immunity from external electrical noise. Designed for force control applications.

Quebec, Canada - September 18, 2014. Robotiq is releasing the FT 150, a cost-effective 6-Axis Force Torque Sensor with unmatched signal quality. Specially designed for force controlled applications, it enables the users to enjoy easy integration and immunity from external electrical noise.


With electronics included in the sensor, digital measurements from the high quality signal (that does not require external processing) and software packages for Universal Robots, ROS, Linux and Windows; this new 6-Axis Force Torque Sensor makes integration easier for end users. This sensor is also compatible with industrial robot manufacturers such as: Yaskawa Motoman, FANUC and ABB.

THE FT 150 IS IDEAL FOR
• Robotic hand guiding
• Finishing (grinding, polishing, deburring)
• Assembly tasks (insertion, surface finding)
• Human-robot collaboration
• Product testing (test benches)

FEATURES
High quality signals
Digital measuring elements make the sensor immune to electro-magnetic noise, no filtering is required.

Direct communication with your robot controller
The signal can be sent directly as digital input to your robot controller. No need for an external signal processing box with the associated costs.

Software packages available
To speed up your application development, software packages are available for Universal Robots, ROS, Linux and Windows. Compatible with industrial robot manufacturers such as: Yaskawa, FANUC and ABB.

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.
