New Gripper Accessory Provides More Sensing Capability

January 22, 2015 - "New Product Release"

PHD is pleased to release the JC1STP Teachable 2 Position Switch Mounting Kit for Series 8400 and Series 190/191 Grippers.

phd, inc.
Mounting kits provide the switch plate with slots for either one or two Series JC1STP Switches to mount to the bottom surface of the grippers. Using two switches allows sensing of up to four jaw positions throughout the jaw travel. Since this accessory uses an existing switch ready option and only requires ordering the mounting plate and switches, it is very easy to apply.

Benefits Include:

  • Lower cost for jaw position sensing - up to 50% less
  • Easy installation and set-up
  • Clean, compact, and easy retrofit
  • Available for all sizes of grippers
  • Simple program logic

The PHD main online catalog has been updated to include these gripper/switch combinations. Please contact Customer Service with any questions.
