conveyer tracking

  • Allows you to easily integrate force-sensing capability into your control programs.*
  • Force/torque values can be set for just one axis, or all six.
  • Trigger values can be set to stop robot motion when a specific force level is reached.
  • Up to two sensors can be mounted; data from sensors can be shared by multiple programs.

*ATI Industrial Automation, Inc force/torque components must be purchased separately.
