Sensor Interface Plate (SIP) System  
Skip Navigation Links

ATI Robotic Tool Changers provide Lock and Unlock sensing to detect when the locking mechanism is in the Locked and Unlocked positions and provides position signals to the process controller. Some Tool Changer models are equipped with integrated Lock and Unlock sensing built into the Tool Changer body, refer to Figure 1. Many Standard Series Tool Changer models can be equipped with Lock and Unlock sensing using a Sensor Interface Plate (SIP) system that attaches to the Master plate. The SIP also serves as the robot interface plate. The SIP consists of Lock and Unlock sensors, detection shaft, sensing plate, and interface plate. Figure 2 through 5 show how the Tool Changer and SIP system functions. A variety of sensor options are available including PNP, NPN, and more. Contact ATI Sales at +1 919-772-0115 for more information.
