TE Connectivity Designs Safety Torque Sensor for Safety in Collaborative Robots
January 29, 2020
TE Connectivity (TE) has designed a safety torque sensor to be implemented in human-robot collaboration.
TE Connectivity (TE) has designed a safety torque sensor to be implemented in human-robot collaboration. The sensor was developed to address the growing demand for safe collaborative robots in manufacturing.
TE’s ring-shaped sensor meets the new level of safety requirements up to ISO13849 Category 4 PL e. This is due to the addition of two electrically segregated channels with no common cause failure.
Additional benefits of the safety torque sensor include low susceptibility to cross loads; a customizable mechanical interface; a Digital I2C electrical interface; and microfused technology.
The sensor can also be integrated at each cobot joint.
