Test new joint with 180° movement (RL-50-003)

Martin Raak | 6. November 2012

The initial endurance tests of the new joint at 180° pivot angle have been running for several days. All our tests run 24/7.  Once as 4DOF system: and once as a pure 2DOF joint with 1.0 kg load:   0 0

First self-programmed pick & place applications with our new software

Martin Raak | 24. September 2012

At the MOTEK 2012 in Stuttgart, we are presenting a new robolink software with which the customer can program simple applications with our robolink articulated arms (see picture: screenshot of the programming interface):    The program was developed by Professor Behnke of the Institute of Computer Science, University of Bonn. His team is the current […]

Interconnection of the hall sensor (revised and posted on 15/03/12)

Martin Raak | 13. September 2012

The hall sensor Honeywell SS443A has an open collector output. This is intended for connection to a TTL/CMOS circuit – the 10kΩ pull-up resistor is already on the board. In this case no further circuitry is necessary. In our test facilities, we like to apply the output to a 24V controller (e.g. PLC). This can […]

Technical specification for 31 articulated arm options

Martin Raak | 7. August 2012

There are 4 kinds of joints offered by igus® which can be combined to form articulated arms. A pure pivot joint and a pure rotary joint (1 DOF), as well as the original multiple-axis joint for rotating and pivoting (2 DOF) – available in symmetrical (+/-90°) and asymmetrical (+130°/-50°) versions. The combination produces altogether 31 […]

Connection hall sensor SS443A

Martin Raak | 15. March 2012

The hall sensor Honeywell SS443A has an open collector output.Switching a load or PLC requires a relay or optocoupler according to the following wiring diagram. The protective diode is necessary in the relay circuit.Due to the low response times, we recommend the use of optocouplers (e.g. Weidmüller 8950760000).   0 0
