Wireless Six-Axis Force/Torque Sensing System

The Wireless F/T, a small wireless transmitter that streams data from up to six 6-axis transducers simultaneously, was recently introduced by ATI Industrial Automation. The Wireless F/T communicates using IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless standard at 2.4 GHz or 5.0 GHz and can stream to the user's host device for data collection, real-time motion control, or user-defined signal processing. It comes in two configurations, one that supports up to six transducers and one that supports up to three transducers.

The Wireless F/T's range in an office environment is 30 m (98 ft) and may reach up to 100 m (328 ft) in an unobstructed environment. Battery life is approximately one hour at maximum capacity (full measurement rate with six transducers enabled), and is extended at lower data rates and/or by disabling one or more of the transducers. Power options include a removable, rechargeable battery that can be charged internally or externally via a Micro USB connector using an external, 5VDC power supply. The Wireless F/T features a small enclosure with robust mounting features. The Three Transducer Wireless F/T measures: 150 mm × 82 mm × 19 mm (5.9 in × 3.2 in × 0.75 in), excluding mating connectors. The Six Transducer Wireless F/T measures: 150 mm × 82 mm × 33 mm (5.9 in × 3.2 in × 1.3 in), excluding mating connectors.

The Force/Torque Sensor System measures six components of force and torque (Fx, Fy, Fz, Tx, Ty, Tz) and features a compact design, hardened stainless steel construction, high-speed output, overload protection, span temperature compensation options, and high signal-to-noise ratio. ATI offers a wide range of custom and standard sensor models from 17 mm to 330 mm and include environmental protection (IP) on most models.
