Perform Lots of New High Precision Force Control Tasks With the New FT 300
/ Most recent by Etienne_Samson
Last September, we’ve launched an updated version on FT 300 that is 10 times more sensitive.
This week, we release an updated free URCap software to get the most out of every application. It enables the FT 300 to feed data into Universal Robots Force mode (Available with Universal Robots CB3.1 controller only). With those updates, the FT 300 is now able to perform much more specific applications such as:
The URCap also includes a new calibration routine. Robotiq integrated a step-by-step calibration procedure which guides the user through the process that takes less than 2 minutes. A new dashboard also provides all 6-axis real-time force and moment readings. Moreover, pre-built programming functions are now embedded in the URCap for intuitive programming.
You can download the software update now from Robotiq’s support website.

FT300 is a great product, thank you for this!
'It enables the FT 300 to feed data into Universal Robots Force mode (Available with Universal Robots CB3.1 controller only).'
I am using UR5/CB3.1 + FT300 + ROS.
If I upgrade my control board to CB3.1, does that mean I can simply forward the UR script 'force_mode()' with to the robot using ROS, and that 'force_mode()' will be using data from FT300?
Or, does that mean it can only be done within a URCap that leverages the RTDE interface?
Will you have any offer to upgrade the old FT300 sensor to the new one?
