Optoelectronic torque sensors for collaborative robotics
18 July 2015
Munich based sensor startup Konux has introduced optoelectronic torque sensors for collaborative robot applications, ensuring safer and more effective human-machine-collaboration.
These torque sensors that have less than 1 microvolt of noise even in the low torque range, and are suitable for use in real-time class 3 control processes due to their rapid response time. The sensors self-calibrate and measure to an accuracy of 0.01 percent.
A contactless measurement principle ensures the sensors are insensitive to vibration and wear resistant.
Konux's patented contactless optoelectronic measuring technology can also be applied to eight other mechanical and geometric measurands, including pressure, angle, and force.
The output signal is mechanically stored, ensuring that the absolute measurement is preserved in the case of a supply voltage failure or machine downtime.
