Low Profile Encoder for Collaborative Robot

CASE STUDY

7-degree-of-freedom anthropomorphic robot with compact arm joint design. The Cobot is designed for flexible production lines with a compact layout and high accuracy to allow precision assembly.

Encoder Requirements

  • Hollow shaft
  • High precision
  • Very low profile
  • Immunity to magnetic fields interference and EMC

Rotary Encoder

  • Netzer VLX-60 Absolute Position Electric Encoder™ incorporated in the robotic arm with frame-less motor and servo drive.
  • Compact, low profile, lightweight & wide bore: Allowing high-level integration for a low profile arm joint design.
  • Frame-less & contact-less with negligible weight, introducing no extra mass & inertia (load) to the system.
  • Total immunity to magnetic interference: Can be positioned very close to the frame-less motor magnets.
  • High resolution 19 bit & accuracy < 0.010deg for smooth and high accuracy rotation with high reputability of 1 count.
  • Standard digital serial interfaces, SSi, BiSS.
  • Special safety algorithms with real-time BIT (Built-In Test) over SSi or BiSS.
