Innovative sensing jigs for production lines
JigSense project aims to develop sensing solutions for a device to support the assembly of components on production lines (template) in order to significantly reduce the volume of associated wiring, improving the reliability of communications, the service life of sensors and significantly reducing maintenance needs, both preventive and corrective. The JigSense project also aims to reinforce and consolidate AOF’s competences in the development of sensored devices and anticipate the market evolution in this field, through the synergies with the involved entities, namely CeNTI and INL.
- Development of a sensor interface module capable of measuring the different sensor topologies and provide a low power bus communication, reducing, this way, the number of required cables for communicating with the PLC and their respective weight;
- Development of a low power wireless communication module that allows the interface between the sensor bus in the movable jig structures and the control system attached to the workstation, in order to eliminate the connection cables between the movable and fixed structures;
- Development of a module for wireless charging, or pulse charging, with temporary internal storage unit, which can eliminate the required power cables to the communication and sensor modules.
