igus Output Encoders for robolink – no longer available

We can no longer supply the robolink output encoders.

Reason is that the chip supplier finished the production of the encoder chip. We have to block all AE Products now.

This also concerns our RL-DCi compact units. We will have to redesign those for the use of motor encoders. For the next 4-8 weeks we will not be able to supply any of these units.

We are now working on an improved output encoder version. The redesign will use another encoder chip. The new product will be available from SEP-OKT 2018 on

robolink NEWS 2018 (Hannover Show – HMI)

Visit us at Hannover Show 2018 (23.4.-27.4.) in Hall 16 opposite from the “big” igus booth. We will present 3 main new product ranges, our news-flyer and new robolink catalogue can be downloaded from this post:

  • robolink DCi: the robolink Standard Joint arms with INTEGRATED CPR control in 2 Versions (4 or 5 DOF),
  • robolink apiro: a new Joint concept with more modularity as before (shown as protype units in operation)
  • robolink rebel: something totally different from our standards, different motors, integrated electronics, but still: motion?plastcs! (shown as prototypes / design study), this development also is a cooperation with our Partner Commonplace Robotics: http://www.cpr-robots.com/
