ANYdrive is a fully integrated robotic joint combining motor, gear, and electronics with position, speed, and torque sensing in one device.
Precise Torque Control
The integrated mechanical spring enables accurate and drift-free torque sensing and tracking for robots with a sense of touch.
Ready for Impact
Absorbing the energy from impacts, the spring protects the powertrain and other components during planned and unexpected collisions.
Water & Dust Proof
ANYdrive is completely sealed against dust and water ingress (IP67) and employs military-grade connectors.
Absolute Position Sensing
Precise absolute encoders, factory calibration, and versatile hardware positioning features render calibration by the user unnecessary.
High-performance embedded control allows for a combination of torque, velocity, position, and impedance command tracking including integrated acceleration estimation.
Reliable, low-jitter, and high-bandwidth EtherCAT® communication enables star and daisy-chain topologies.
An integrated 6D IMU provides gyroscope and accelerometer measurements for additional sensory feedback.
Temperature & Humidity Monitoring
Functionality and safety are provided through real-time sensing of device temperatures and internal humidity.
Explore how ANYdrive combines all elements of a robotic actuator in a compact and lightweight device.
Custom electronics and embedded control are tailored to provide maximal performance with extensive access to user settings. ANYdrive also integrates an IMU and temperature sensing, real-time data logging, and internal data storage.
The electric motor is optimized for power density and efficiency, combined with an advanced thermal design. Driven by the custom motor control, fast dynamics are achieved while minimizing torque ripples. A strain wave gear provides a backlash-free transmission.
ANYdrive is built on the Series Elastic Actuator (SEA) principle, where a compliant element is leveraged for force sensing and impact absorption. The novel spring design provides precise torque sensing and collision resistance without sacrificing position control performance, reliability, or lifetime.
ANYdrive's enclosure not only protects from water and dust ingress (IP67), but is also constructed for high load bearing capabilities in all directions. Mechanical features allow for precise front and side mounting, eliminating the need for calibration. The hollow shaft enables optimal cable routing.
