New Solid State Switch Family Of Electrical Switches

Applied Robotics Inc., a leading provider of automation end-of-arm tooling and connectivity solutions today announced its new family of Solid State Electrical Switches. The new switches employ solid state pressure sensors and surface mount interface electronics, all self-contained within a sealed housing.

“The new switches are being used on our line of QuickSTOP collision sensors which are ideal for multiple industrial applications,” said Jim Fitzgerald, vice president of Applied Robotics.

The new switches are used with the company’s line of QuickSTOP Collision Sensors which operate on air pressure to immediately send a shutdown signal on impact. The Quickstop Collision Sensors are ideal from many industrial applications including material handling, machine loading/unloading, pick and place operations, and spot welding. All QuickSTOP models feature dynamically variable trip points allowing the user to program your collision sensor at all speeds of an operation. The breakaway threshold adjusts to match the working force ranges of your robot/application. The switches have a dynamic operating range of 15 - 90 psi, separate solid-state PNP (sourcing) and NPN (sinking) outputs, and are rated at 200 mA each.
