Safe retraction system for robotic cables
The latest addition to the igus multi-axis cable-carrier line is an adjustable retraction system known as Triflex RSP.
 
The system is designed for secure cable guidance on large robot arms or for robots programmed to perform complex movements.
 
The force at which Triflex RSP retracts can be adjusted by changing the pressure inside its pneumatic cylinder. 
 
This means the cable carrier can be safely retracted, even when guiding a complex assortment of cables and hoses. 
 
Triflex RSP can be attached to various robot models quickly and easily thanks to its compact mounting brackets. The system is both space saving and lightweight.
 
An optional-monitoring system is available for robots whose program sequences frequently change, alternate, or are not 100-percent predictable. 
 
This is particularly useful for robots that are steered by cameras or image-acquisition systems. The monitoring is completed via a connection to the robot’s main controls or PLC. 
 
When a predetermined tolerance value is about to be exceeded, an early warning signal is given. This is also useful for those robots that must be frequently reprogrammed.
 
Triflex R multi-axis cable carriers from igus can be used for power, data and media supply. 
 
The Triflex R range is specifically designed for robot operators and has around 250 components to guide cables and hoses securely through multiple axes.
