October 6, 2015 - ATI Industrial Automation announces F/T capacitive force sensor that measures the full six components of force and torque (Fx, Fy, Fz, Tx, Ty, Tz).
The sensor is IP65-rated for protection against dust and water spray and hard mechanical stops are implemented for overload protection. Easy output options include computer connection via optional USB and Ethernet conversion cables.
The F/T’s Force Range (Fx, Fy, Fz) is 45 lbf (200 N) and Torque Range (Tx, Ty, Tz) is 35 in-lb (4 Nm). Output options include an Ethernet conversion box that allows connection to Ethernet networks, USB conversion cables that allow connection to a personal computer or other devices and is powered by the USB output, and RS-422 serial connection, which provides unterminated wires for data signals and user 5 VDC power input.
