Schunk has added the FCT to its range of sensors. It is a force/moment sensor for hand-operated robots or service robots and can also be used in simpler applications.
THE FORCE AND MOMENT SENSOR is suitable for implementing compact solutions because the electronic processor is fully integrated into the module. The flat quick-change sensor features an interfering contour and has six independent load measurement ranges. This allows forces up to 150 N and moments up to 3 Nm to be recorded with a measuring accuracy of 3 %. Configuration and evaluation can be performed via CAN or EIA-232.
The sensor can handle temporary overloads up to three times the normal load. Due to its real-time measurement and data output functions, the FCT also enables control concepts. It can be used for simple assembly applications as well as for hand-operated robots or service robotics applications. Due to its battery-servable 12 VDC to 24 VDC power supply, the product is also suitable for mobile applications.
