This control box requires an external compressor and is suitable for high-speed robots where timing and a high number of cycles are of utmost importance. Delta and Scara robots are best used with this control box, but so are fixed robots in continuous operation that have access to a compressor. Suction cups can also be used due to the additional connection. The grippers are very robust and can be operated at a speed of over 120 cycles per minute without any problems. Basically the use of this box allows the operation of the following SoftGripping product lines: Educational, SoftActuator and SoftGripper, but can also be used for other product lines.
On the front side, the current pressure can be read in the pressure display and adjusted via a rotary knob. On the back of the unit are the pressure input and two outputs. The outputs control the position of the fingers. You can switch between 3 positions: Grip, Open and Relax.
