ATI Industrial Automation’s networkable force/torque sensor system (Net F/T) is now fully compatible with Staubli Robots.

The Net F/T system provides true plug-and-play connectivity via Ethernet to Staubli’s CS8 robot controllers.

The Net F/T transducer with Net Box interfaces to a Staubli robot controller via a TCP/IP socket and optional VAL3 library, which reads force values to enhance manufacturing automation.

Forces and torques are measured by the sensor at the wrist of the robot giving it a sense of touch.

Together, the robot and sensor allow the automation of difficult assembly, machining and finishing tasks that previously required skilled personnel or complex assembly machines.

The Net F/T sensor system measures six components of force and torque (Fx, Fy, Fz, Tx, Ty, Tz) and is available on any of ATI’s force/torque transducers.

It helps to optimise end-user robotic applications.

ATI’s six-axis force/torque sensors were designed to work with a variety of robots.

The Net F/T sensor system provides an Ethernet and a CAN bus communication interface.

Its Ethernet/IP interface is fully ODVA compliant.

The system is powered by either Power over Ethernet (PoE) or by an external power supply (11V DC to 24V DC).

The Net F/T’s interface (Net Box) is sealed to IP65 (splash proof) and its transducer and cable can be sealed to IP68 (submersible in fresh water to 10m).

Multiple transducer calibrations can be permanently stored in the system for user selection.

The Net F/T system provides a variety of features including: cable-break detection; multiple interfaces; LAN connectivity; high-speed output; web-based configuration and demo; programmable thresholding; built-in status indicators; overload protection; tool transformations; temperature compensation and high signal-to-noise ratio.
