For most laboratory applications we recommend the R19
or where speed and thruput are important the R17HS
which can run up to 10 times as fast as typical lab robots without collisions or spilling anything thanks to programmable acceleration and rate of acceleration (known as JERK). New advanced drives ensure swift smooth motion and quiet operation in the lab environment. DSP technology provides fast multi-axis compound motion plus the ability to multi-task. The robot may be mounted on a track which can be up to 4 meters long and will run at up to 2m/sec to reach multiple diverse instruments in minimum time.
is a mini-Cartesian robot suitable for positioning plates under fixed positions or as a basis for similar applications such as the cool storage cabinet below.
ST robots are programmed in RoboForth II
programming system which is more versatile by far than any competitive system. It is text based encouraging building block approach to programming but also easily interfaces to any other programming language such as Python, C etc.. The robot may be supervised by any computer using your own software through RS232 or TCP/IP/ or proprietory supervisors such as Overlord
via the ActiveX modules provided. The ST robot controller will also control other devices, read and synchronise with sensors or take measurements from such as thermometers, pressure gauges, scales etc. and schedule and collect data using spreadsheet compatible files or upload to LabVIEW.
