Z-Arm Series Robot Arm
Answer: The internal of 2442/4160 series can take trachea or straight wire.
Answer: Some robot arm models, such as 2442, support inverted installation, but do not support horizontal installation at the moment.
Answer: Since the protocol is not open to the public, it currently does not support the PLC to communicate with the robot arm directly. It can communicate with the arm’s standard host computer SCIC Studio or secondary development software to realize the control of the robot arm. The robot arm is equipped with a certain number of I /O interface which can carry out signal interaction.
Answer: It is not currently supported. The standard host computer SCIC Studio can only run on Windows （7 or 10）, but we provide a secondary development kit（SDK）on the Android system. Users can develop applications to control the arm according to their needs.
Answer: SCIC Studio supports independent control of multiple robot arms at the same time. You only need to create multiple workflows. A host IP can control up to 254 robot arms（same network segment）. The actual situation is also related to the performance of the computer.
Answer: Currently supports C#, C++, Java, Labview, Python, and supports Windows, Linux, and Android systems.
Answer: server.exe is a server program, which is responsible for the transmission of data information between the robot arm and the user program.
Answer: At present, the robot arm cannot directly cooperate with the vision. The user can communicate with SCIC Studio or secondary developed software to receive the visual related data to control the robot arm. In addition, the SCIC Studio software contains a Python programming module, which can directly perform custom modules’ development.
Answer: Yes, there is a symmetry error of <0.1mm, and the repeatability is ±0.02mm.
Answer: Not included. Users need to design their own fixtures according to the actual clamped items. In addition, SCIC also provides a few fixture libraries, please contact the sales staff to get them.
Answer: The drive is built-in, no need to purchase it separately.
Answer: No, the single-finger movement gripper is under development. Please contact the sales staff for details.
Answer: The clamping force of Z-EFG-8S is 8-20N, which can be manually adjusted by the potentiometer on the side of the clamping gripper. The clamping force of Z-EFG-12 is 30N, which is not adjustable. The clamping force of Z-EFG-20 is 80N by default. Customers can ask for other force when purchasing, and it can be set to a customized value.
Answer: The stroke of Z-EFG-8S and Z-EFG-12 is not adjustable. For Z-EFG-20 pulse type gripper, 200 pulses correspond to 20mm stroke, and 1 pulse corresponds to 0.1mm stroke.
Answer: For the standard version of 20-pulse gripper, the extra pulse will not be executed and will not cause any impact.
Answer: After the gripper grips the object, it will remain in the current position with a fixed gripping force. After the object is removed by the external force, the gripping finger will continue to move.
Answer: The I/O series of Z-EFG-8S, Z-EFG-12 and Z-EFG-20 only judge if the gripper stops. For the Z-EFG-20 gripper, the feedback of the pulse quantity shows the current position of the grippers, so the user can judge whether the object is clamped according to the number of pulses’ feedback.
Answer: It is not waterproof, please consult the sales staff for special needs.
Answer: Yes, 8S and 20 refer to the effective stroke of the gripper, not the size of the object being clamped. If the maximum to minimum size repeatability of the object is within 8mm, you can use Z-EFG- 8S for clamping. Similarly, Z-EFG-20 can be used for clamping the items whose maximum to minimum size repeatability is within 20mm.
Answer: After the professional test, Z-EFG-8S has been working at an ambient temperature of 30 degrees, and the surface temperature of the gripper will not exceed 50 degrees.
Answer: Currently Z-EFG-100 supports 485 communication control only. Users can manually set parameters such as movement speed, position and clamping force. The internal of 2442/4160 series can take trachea or straight wire.
