Six sizes and 12 torques ranging from 0.9 to 6.7 Nm (0.6 to 50 lb-ft) are available. The heads’ electric feedthrough uses digital signals for sensors or actuators, and ensures greater reliability over the break-prone routing of cables through the rotary actuator’s center bore. The media feedthrough is directly connected to the swivel heads’ mounting surface and both the head and rotating grippers can be directly supplied with compressed air without hoses.
