Insiders know more. Motor feedback systems in the field of robotics deliver the data on speed and position as well as on the condition of the drives to the control system. They thereby create the sensory foundation for all robot movements. These Smart Motor Sensors from SICK are right in the center of the action and provide the necessary data for the efficient control of the robot and the plant.
Selection of robot applications for position feedback
Articulated arm robots
Linear robots (Cartesian)
The TTK50 and TTK70 motor feedback systems work with a non-contact measurement principle and are therefore wear-free. Thanks to the absolute length measurement system, reference runs are no longer necessary. This makes the system ideal for linear applications for measurement lengths of up to four meters.
Due to its compact design, the SKM/SKS are well-suited for very dynamic applications such as delta robots. All variants feature an electronic type label and a HIPERFACE® interface and fulfill the safety requirements according to SIL2/PL d.
