Robotiq's Insights Now Provides Remote Access to the Robot Cell

Application experts can access a robot teach pendant anywhere, anytime

Quebec City, Canada, October 9, 2018 — Robotiq launches Remote Access on its Insights monitoring software to bring technical support to the next level for Universal Robots. Application experts can now access the teach pendant and video streams from the robot cell. They get all the live information needed to troubleshoot the application and (re)start production faster.


"This is the end of email chains and long phone calls trying to solve a production issue," explains Robotiq CEO Samuel Bouchard. "Remote Access is a precious ally to operators who are new to collaborative robots. Anytime they have a question, they can talk to an application expert and give access to their robots data. The application expert is able to recommend fixes or tweak the robot program in order to remove blockers."

Remote Access adds up to the numerous useful robot monitoring features provided by Robotiqs Insights, such as real-time alerts, custom KPIs and production reports. By connecting their robots to Insights, Universal Robots users can minimize downtime, monitor their production and optimize their process to get a better return on investment.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
