SR-48 Robotic Collision Sensor
ATI Industrial AutomationUpdated 10/02/2014
ATI Industrial Automation has released the newest addition to its line of Robotic Collision Sensors. The SR-48 was developed to provide a lower range Collision Sensor than the SR-61 model, but with a similar robust design. ATI’s patented design includes an automatic reset feature that benefits workplace safety. After the robot crashes, the Collision Sensor will automatically reset when the robot removes the tooling from the crash-causing object. Compliant in the X, Y, and Z axes, this capability provides a safer method for resetting by making it unnecessary for personnel to enter the robotic work cell.
The SR-48 can be utilized in a variety of applications, including arc welding. The new Collision Sensor was designed with flexible mounting surfaces, threaded and through-hole with simple design patterns, reducing the stack height of the tooling. Quick-response crash detection means the two wire circuit can be configured as sinking or sourcing. Consistent break-away response, meaning response is similar at a given pressure, independent of whether the collision was angular, compressive axial, or torsional. Other features include: high repeatability, large moment and torsional rotation, rugged design, and low cost. All of these features make the SR-48 Collision Sensor a worthwhile investment to protect robots and tooling while minimizing downtime and eliminating the need for human intervention. ATI offers a wide selection of Collision Sensor models to cover a variety of applications, including environmental protection options on all models.
