Are you using a protective glove on you 3-Finger Adaptive Gripper (part number AGS-GLV-001)?

Here are some tips that will extend the lifetime the glove:

  • Always use the glove mode option (bit rGLV = 1). Set the bit prior to the activation and keep it set at all time to prevent premature wear of the glove (See full register mapping here).

  • If possible, avoid full closing of the fingers (except in pinch mode).

  • If possible, use the basic mode instead of the wide mode when full closing is required (the basic mode is optimized for minimal wear of the glove).

  • If possible, avoid full opening in the scissor mode.

Note : The 3-Finger protective glove is made of polyurethane that can work up to 250 F (120 °C).
