OptoForce has announced their updated Six Axis Force/Torque Sensor (HEX-E, HEX-H)

 

 

• Each sensor will get increased overload protection - instead of having an overload capacity of two times, the sensors will now be strengthened to five times overload.

 

• New integrated (built-in) sensor mounting plates are being added now making the product compatible with ABB. (The sensors have been and are fully compatible for Universal Robots and KUKA robots).

 

• In addition, they are also introducing a new compute box. This new platform allows for full compatibility with all robot types. With the compute box capability, computing capacity will be higher.

 

• A new stronger cable clamp (90 degrees) has been added to improve the durability of the cable, further decreasing the chance of it breaking.

 

Calibration was developed to advance sensor precision.

 

The hardware design was modified so that during sensor mounting, the axes of the sensor and the axes of the robot overlaps.
