We’re different. And so are our drives.

SENSO-Joints

Torque-controlled actuator

The future is progressive.
Progress is innovative. Progress is compact. Progress is powerful.
In a word – progress is torque-controlled.

The SENSO-Joint is the epitome of the new torque-controlled actuators from SENSODRIVE.
In addition to the renowned SENSODRIVE torque sensor, the drive package includes a long-lasting HarmonicDrive® gearbox and an output bearing.
The SENSO-Joint comes up trumps with its powerful motor and encoder.
To complete the team, you can leave control of the SENSO-Joint to one of our intelligent controllers.

Compact and powerful, light and sensitive – the sophisticated way of installing the torque sensor and its ideal adaptation to the actuator's components are what make the SENSO-Joint so successful.

Discover the SENSO-Joint and equip your project for the future.

The future is progressive: We're more progressive. SENSO-Joint.
