• TCS-3 Collision Sensor

The TCS is a mechanical collision sensor that utilizes pneumatics for dynamic variability.

  • Detects when the robot arm has encountered an obstruction.
  • Absorbs the crash energy.
  • Stops the robot to prevent costly damage to the robot arm and tooling.
  • Features a repeatability of 0.0005" and allows the user to adjust the amount of resistance the unit must overcome before stopping the system.
