ULTIMATIC COLLISION SENSORS – RAD was the first manufacturer of Collision Sensors in 1984. RAD’S Robotic Collision Sensors mechanically detect when the robot arm has encountered an obstruction, absorb the crash energy and quickly stop the robot to prevent costly damage to the robot arm and tooling.
Available in Pneumatic, Pneumatic High-Angle, Pneumatic Spring-Assist, Spring-Loaded
Sends a signal to the system’s E-stop or controller within 2 to 10 ms of a collision.
Absorbs the crash energy without releasing compressed air into the environment.
Resets automatically to within +- 0.0005”(0.013mm) in X,Y & Z dimensions and to within +-0.017 degrees rotationally.
Repeatability of 0.0005 (0.013 mm) and allows the user to easily adjust the amount of resistance.
Senses a collision even when the robot arm is not in motion.
Resists corrosion due to its stainless steel construction.
Provides angular, rotational and axial (compressive) compliance.
Allows for dynamically variable resistance through regulation of air pressure.
