Robot Manipulator / Arm and Base
The considerably high rate of industrial automation is the main driver behind developments in robotics. The range of applications robots need to handle is expanding with high speed and precision, and drives the demand for versatile, flexible and intelligent end-of-arm tooling that adds value to the overall production system. A robot is a type of programmable mechanical arm consisted of multi-axis and can work like a human arm. TE offers a broad portfolio from industrial communications, sensors, and power to motor connectivity solutions complemented with standard and customized cable assembly solutions to meet the requirements of the different end-markets.
Safety torque sensor
Designed to be integrated at each cobot joint, meeting the new level of safety requirements up to ISO13849 Category 4 PL e. Optimized for collaborative robots the sensor provides low susceptibility to crosstalk allowing increased accuracy. Customized mechanical interfaces available to meet specific requirements.
Performing the functional need of the robot, End of Arm Technology (EoT) acts as the gripper, mechanic, welder, vacuum, painter or more as required by application. With these designs comes the need for rugged, high-speed, and reliable connectivity. Explore the ruggedized portfolio below designed to satisfy needs for EoT technology.
The main task of robot control technology is controlling industrial robots’ motion in the workspace position, attitude and trajectory, the operation sequence, and time of action. As a manufacturer of robot and control technology, you need to be ready for the future - a future where smaller size, flexibility and modularity, optimum configuration options, high productivity and efficiency are the key factors determining your customers’ success. TE’s wide range of power, data and signal interconnect products help to achieve critical and reliable connections to precisely control robots, such as HDC products providing high quality solutions for reliable and safe connectivity in harsh environment.
Teaching Pendant Unit (TPU)
Through a variety of device options, the Teaching Pendant Unit (TPU) maps the trajectory and function of the robot through digital "teaching." Once "taught," this programming unit can be detached in order to control remotely, and requires high-speed connectivity to maintain efficient operation and safety.
