Two ways of integrating third-party end-effector are possible:
- Integration of a CANopen end-effector: the wrist exposes a CAN bus connector and PAL provides the drawings of the mounting part. Then, the customer can design the required mechanical part to attach the end-effector to the wrist and connect to the bus.
- Integration of an end-effector using another communication bus: in this case the customer can design the mechanical part to attach the end-effector to the wrist and use external cabling to connect to one of the ports provided in the laptop tray user panel (i.e. 1x USB 2.0, 1x USB 3.0 and 2x GigE ports) and the power supply (12 V, 5 A).
Furthermore, PAL Robotics offers customization and integration services to help the customer to integrate other end-effectors.
