Teaching Grippers to see
The optical sensor works with infrared light at a wavelength of 850 nm. It functions at environmental temperatures between - 10° C and + 55° C, and fulfills the stan-dards for protection class IP65. The sensor module is an all-rounder, and can also be combined with other grippers and automated modules. For example, it can be used for analog position monitoring of long-stroke grippers, by integrating it in one of the two base jaws. Combined with grippers and rotary modules, the sensor can be aligned inwards instead of outwards and thus assures piston monitoring.
