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.
