Dexter HDI from Haddington Dynamics makes automation accessible in a whole new frontier of applications. thanks to its exciting leap forward in encoder technology. The FPGA supercomputer onboard the robot gets 0.8-1.6 million points of precision (CPR) directly on each of the robot’s joints, allowing extremely imprecise parts to produce extremely precise movement.
This same encoder technology grants two disruptive features: motors no longer need to be placed inside of joints and their resolution is high enough to measure deflections in otherwise ridged components, allowing them to double as precise torque sensors. This drastically reduces the power and structural rigidity required of traditional industrial robots as the heavy motors and gearboxes are no longer being lifted but now act as a counterweight.
