Sensor helps guide robotic vehicles along invisible magnetic tracks
A new magnetic guide sensor capable of detecting and reporting the position of a magnetic field along its horizontal axis, has been introduced by Roboteq. The sensor is intended for line following robotic applications, using adhesive magnetic tape to form a track guide on the floor. Measuring only 165x35x35mm, the MGSW1600 is built into a rugged, watertight, all-metal enclosure. It uses an 8-pin waterproof M12-type connector for it...
Simulator accelerates the design of magnetic guided AGR vehicles
A simulator that lets AGV designers programme, test and fine tune their Automated Guided Vehicles in the comfort of their PC has been introduced by Roboteq. A magnetic track guided AGV can be built with just two Roboteq components: an MGS1600 magnetic guide sensor and any Roboteq Dual Channel motor controller.
Brushless DC motor controller designed for mobile robots
Roboteq has introduced the SBL2360, a compact intelligent controller capable of driving two brushless DC motor up to 30A each at up to 60V.
Intelligent controller targets AGVs
An intelligent controller capable of directly driving two DC motors up to 120Amps each has been introduced by Roboteq. Priced at only $425 in single quantity, the XDC2230 is targeted at designers of Mobile Robots, Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGVs), Warehouse Automation Systems or any other high power motor control application.
How to build a magnetic track guided mobile robot
Roboteq has released an application note and a demonstration video, showing how to build an Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) which follows a track made of an adhesive magnetic tape affixed to the floor. The design uses just two Roboteq components: the MGS1600 magnetic guide sensor, and the MDC2230 programmable dual channel DC motor controller.
Industry's most capable I/O expansion card for Raspberry PI
Roboteq has today announced the most versatile and capable I/O expansion card ever made for the ultra-popular Raspberry PI Single Board Computer. Roboteq’s RIO - for Raspberry I/O - stacks on top of the Raspberry to create an amazingly powerful embedded control and navigation computer, in a small footprint of just 65 x 85 x 20mm.
