The new rental-based force and pressure measurement system by Pilz (pilz.com) offers a complete package for validation of human-robot collaborations (HRC) in accordance with ISO/TS 15066. So the limit values for force or pressure of the robot movement, as specified by the ISO/TS, can now be measured precisely and, therefore, validated using PROBms.
User software and product training complete the overall package. The worldwide rental concept guarantees that users always have an up-to-date measurement system at their disposal. PROBms ensures greater productivity and safety on HRC applications.
The measurement system also contains the necessary pressure indicating films, the scanner, nine springs with different force constants to recreate the various body regions, and software to operate the measurement device and record the measurements. The set includes a 1-day product training course and a comprehensive after rental sales package including maintenance, calibration and regular software updates.
For HRC, the technical specification specifies a force and pressure measurement for the robot movement. The TS provides limiting values for each part of the body in the event of a collision between human and machine. If the application remains within these limits during contact between human and robot, it conforms to the standard.
The force and pressure measurement system PROBms is available from Pilz worldwide on a rental basis. The rental concept includes maintenance, calibration and regular updates, so that users always have access to a fully functional, state-of-the-art measurement system.
