Here you can learn why building a robot or cobot arm with SOMANET Circulo saves time, costs and ressources. Mechanical integration, included encoders, functional safety and much more – all included in one device.
Saves space and money
Only a hybrid Cable (EtherCAT + STO/SBC) and a single power supply cable (48V) are needed to build a multi-axis cobot. This saves lots of space inside the cobot and is much more economic.
Short motor cables between SOMANET Circulo and the motor ensure a safe and reliable environment inside the robot or cobot.
Safety functions provided by SOMANET Safe Motion in accordance with IEC 61800-5-2

SOMANET Circulo now comes with a BRAKE System preventing the motor from unwanted rotary motion.
The brake system’s latching solenoid is only activated when the motor drive is disabled, or in the event of an emergency stop.
This brake system, which acts as a holding brake, prevents any movement of the robot. This prevents unwanted contact with the workpiece to be machined, just like unwanted contact between robot and human.
