GX – new generation of collaborative laboratory robotics
The GX offers a number of innovative features that make it the ideal choice for handling microplates within the laboratory.
|Drag-to-Teach||When teaching the robot end-points, the user moves the robot into position and then touches the button conveniently located on the shoulder to automatically record the coordinates|
|Collaborative Operation||Can be used within a laboratory without any additional safety guarding.
Meets Collaborative operation requirements of ISO 10218-1:2011,
clause 5.10.3: Power and force limiting by inherent design or control
|No Pinch Points||There are no joint overlaps or exposed slots that can accidentally catch a finger during human interaction|
|Direct-Drive Motors||PAA’s free-drive™ technology uses direct-drive motors for all axes so no maintenance, zero backlash, and near-silent operation|
|Gravity-Neutral Counterbalanced Arm||The arm is perfectly counterbalanced for safety and ease of teaching, and it consumes no power when at rest.|
|True Absolute Encoders||There is no movement upon power-up for “homing”. The robot always knows where it is, and there are no batteries to replace.|
|Straight-Line Interpolated Motion||Straight-line motion allows the arm to extend inside a tight space with no fear of rubbing on the sides|
|Continuous Blended Moves||Smooth blended moves reduce plate transfer times while protecting sensitive samples from vibration or shock|
|Built-in barcode scanner||Plates in a hotel rack can be pre-scanned by the robot for sample tracking using the on-board scanner located inside the gripper housing.|
|Compatible with existing PAA racks & stacks configurations||Use the latest cutting edge laboratory robot with established plate-storage configurations|
|Drop-in replacement for existing KiNEDx robot installations||Older systems with PAA’s KiNEDx robot can easily be upgraded to the GXK model without rearranging existing instrument|
|TCP/IP||100 Mbps Ethernet Port allows connecting on a network.|
|Meets all the Latest and Relevant Standards||EN ISO 10218-1-2007 Robots for Industrial Environments,
EN 610204-1 Safety of Machinery, Electrical Equipment of Machines
EN 61000-6-4 EMC Directive (Emissions) EN 61000-6-2 EMC Directive(Immunity).
|Standard I/O Built-In||Digital and Analog I/O available at the wrist and the base control box for interfacing and controlling other devices.|
|Numerous Options||Available options include: extended arm reach, different heights, inverted arms, linear rail extension, numerous gripper configurations, as well as 0°C and 40°C operation|
|Manufactured Exclusively by PAA||The GX is designed, manufactured, and supported directly by PAA through its multi-national offices. Established 1989, PAA created the original laboratory SCARA in 2003.|
