Retro-fitting robots with wireless technology

SAI Active wireless modules for a retrofit in no time

 

Initial situation

IRMATO often takes advantage of used robots for their automation solutions. These second-hand robots must be retro-fitted to prepare them for their new assignment. A big challenge is to quickly convert the robots for their new tasks – including routing the new cabling.

Solution

Using SAI Active wireless modules to reliably transmit the signals without cables is very profitable for IRMATO as high material costs and considerable time delays for the cabling are being avoided. The Weidmüller modules feature IP 67 protection which makes them a perfect fit to IRMATO’s requirement for a water-resistant and dust-resistant solution.
