DH-Robotics is working with Infineon Technologies on the next generation of electric grippers for robots.

The electric grippers developed by DH Robotics use multiple Infineon devices, from integrated EtherCAT industrial microcontrollers, high-precision Hall effect sensors, gate driver ICs, power MOSFETs and the PSoC 6 microcontrollers.

The 32bit XMC XMC4000 family of industrial MCUs based on the ARM Cortex-M4 provide higher computing capacity, lower heat generation, and faster communication capability along with EtherCat network connectivity. The TLE4963-2M high-precision Hall effect sensor is specially designed for high accuracy, providing an easy-to-use solution for position sensing applications requiring high-temperature magnetic threshold stability.

The EiceDRIVER 600 V high-side and low-side gate driver IC IR2181STRPBF provides complete product protection throughout their lifecycle from development and design to final application, while the OptiMOS 5 80 V industrial power MOSFETs (BSZ075N08NS5 and BSC030N08NS5) have 43 percent lower on resistance to boost the switching frequencies and efficiency.

.The dual core 32-bit PSoC 6 MCU uses the ARM Cortex-M4 and Cortex-M0+ cores to provide precise control, adaptability, safety, and energy efficiency, making them indispensable in industries that require handling delicate components with accuracy.

Equipped with safety features, the grippers can enhance worker and equipment safety, especially in automated environments. With fewer moving parts, they require less maintenance, boosting productivity.

“Innovation is the heartbeat of progress, and we at Infineon are thrilled to be part of DH-Robotics’ journey to reshape the industrial landscape with their state-of-the-art electric grippers,” said Yao Zhicheng, Head of Business Development, Power & Sensor Systems, at Infineon Greater China. “During the product development phase, Infineon’s local team quickly responded to the customer’s requirements and provided DH-Robotics with a comprehensive one-stop-shop and easy-to-use solution, empowering them to bring their cutting-edge products to market faster.”

The DH-Robotics electric grippers and electric cylinders have entered mass production and are already widely used in equipment testing in the 3C industry and lithium battery products which require accurate handling.
