What Modularity should be

Numatics fieldbus manifold The next-generation electronic platform that allows you easy access to connectors; it's easy to assemble and install, commission, and maintain.  It includes graphic display for configuration and diagnostics, easy robust connections, and is highly distributable.

The G3 Series product line is a completely modular system.   All of the G3 electronic modules plug together, via mechanical clips, allowing easy assembly and field changes.  This makes the system highly distributable. Additional flexibility is incorporated because the same modules can be used in either centralized or distributed applications.

DPE-400 Heavy duty electric gripper


Robohand zero-maintenance electric grippers deliver faster installation, lower maintenance costs, increased reliability over traditional pneumatic grippers.  Gripper open and close operation is controlled using a discrete output from an industrial standard controller such as a PLC.


The DPE-400 is the most durable electric gripper in the industry.  With simple plug & play operation, no programming, tuning or adjusting is required.  "Light switch" simplicity in a compact design for easy setup and no external control board. DPE-400 grippers


All-in-one gripper unit with built-in motor controller:


  • No external controllers or software required
  • Internal sensing detects when the motor is stalled, generating feedback signals to mimic external sensors
  • Failsafe operation:  grip force is diminished but jaws will not separate upon power loss
