Industrial Automated Robotic Arm

Application Summary
Industrial robots make assembly lines more efficient and reliable. Paired with any full-bridge strain-gauge-based sensor, operators can use new IAA amplifiers to send clear, clean signals to logic controllers that govern the assembly line.
Products in Use
A strain-gauge, full-bridge multi-axial sensor that measures torque and load paired with the IAA100 (voltage) or IAA200 (current). View Product Details
Multi-Axis Sensor - Industrial Automated Robotic Arm
How it Works
  1. In order to automate an industrial robotic arm, control engineers will program a PLC to specify response triggers.
  2. In the above diagram, a full-bridge strain-gauge-based load and torque sensor resides within the claw of the robotic arm measuring torque and load of an object.
  3. The IAA Series amplifies a mV/V signal coming from the strain-gauge-based sensor.
  4. The output of the IAA amplifier will produce an accurate and low noise signal to the PLC to complete the feedback loop. (Because this application is utilizing a multiple channel sensor, the operations engineer will require one IAA amplifier per channel output.)
