Sustainable interface to your application
The integrated Ethernet interface provides the direct link between the KMS 40 and existing networks. Thanks to the self-explaining web-based configuration interface, setup and diagnostics are easy and intuitive. Communication and data exchange are based on a powerful and easy-to-use text-based command protocol, which can be used either over TCP or UDP. Options for CAN-Bus and RS-232 interface are available, too.
Extend the functional range of your sensor
The powerful Lua script interpreter of the KMS 40 allows the implementation of application-specific features such as special filtering, data processing or recording directly on the sensor. For this purpose, the configuration interface of the KMS 40 provides a built-in script editor. The integrated memory card can be used to store the scripts as well as acquired measurement data, providing a maximum level of flexibility.
precise and reliable
High performance in a lightweight and compact design
The force/torque sensor KMS 40 uses reliable and high precision strain gauge technology. With a frame rate of up to 500 frames per second, an absolute accuracy better than 1% and a repeatability better than 0.5% the KMS 40 delivers highly precise measurement data while still being able to fulfill the requirements on robustness and reliability of even demanding industrial applications.
FORCEKIT for UR
Turnkey force torque sensor solution for Universal Robots
FORCEKIT is the new powerful force measurement solution for Universal Robots. FORCEKIT contains all the necessary components to successfully implement force-controlled applications in the blink of an eye. To ensure a quick start, FORCEKIT contains not only the actual sensor but also the required mounting plates and the matching connecting cables. With the URCaps plugin, the sensor can be effortlessly integrated into the application. FORCEKIT provides direct communication with the sensor via Ethernet, so you always have full access to current force and torque readings. In addition, FORCEKIT supports the RTDE interface of the UR robot. Thus, the measured data can be fed directly into the control loop and allow precise force control directly via the robot controller. A zero force control, for example, can be realized in just a few minutes.
The FORCEKIT contains:
- Intelligent Force/Torque sensor KMS 40
(six-axis, measurement range 120 N / 3 Nm)
- Mounting plate
- Ethernet data and power supply cables, length 5 m
- Documentation and calibration protocol
