MegaONE Overview

What is MegaONE?

The MegaONE is a compact and lightweight 6-axis force torque sensor designed for advanced industrial applications with robots that have a payload capacity of up to 120 kg. The sensor's robust and stiff structure can withstand high overload and cyclic load, while still providing high sensitivity, making it suitable for demanding tasks such as sanding, polishing, deburring, precision assembly, and product testing. With its integrated signal processing electronics, the MegaONE is easy to use and can be integrated into a variety of industrial robots, including those from ABB, Stäubli, Kuka, and more. The sensor also features a 6 DoF IMU for process monitoring and state estimation, as well as multiple mounting flanges for 3D cameras and tools.

Bota Systems MegaONE boasts the following features and benefits:

• An all-in-one force torque sensor design with ISO 9409-1-63-4-M8 mounting.
• Compact, lightweight construction for efficient utilization of robot payload.
• Embedded electronics for easy plug-and-play operation.
• A 6 DoF IMU for process monitoring and state estimation (only available with EtherCAT communication).
• 3 mounting flanges for 3D cameras and tools.
• Accurate 6-axis measurement.
• 7-48 V power supply (5V for Serial/USB).
• Overload protection for durability.
• CE compatibility.
• Dustproof and water-resistant design.
• Open-source software compatibility with TwinCAT, ROS, LabVIEW, and MATLAB®.

I work as a postdoctoral research fellow in orthopaedic engineering. I have built a custom rig that I was then looking for a multi-axial load cell that was affordable and that was easy to use. A fellow researcher in robotics recommended that I get in touch with BOTA Systems, a robotics company that also focuses on force sensing applications. I was immediately contacted by a BOTA representative, who promptly briefed me on a great range of load cells. They also met with me multiple times to help integrate the BOTA Medusa multi-axial load cell with my rig and existing code, custom design all required accessories. I was incredibly impressed with the "ease of use" of the highly integrated product, accessories, software and customer support, the incredible value for money and would highly recommend BOTA Systems force sensors and the team.

I used this sensor in a custom-built testbed for measuring wheel-soil interaction forces.
The sensor was easy to mount and use, and support from the team was excellent when I had software issues. It was easy to use the sensor with ROS, and the data quality was very good.
The sensor takes 30-45 minutes to warm up to a steady temperature, and force measurements drift with temp, so you have to turn on the machine well in advance of data collection. The cable that came with our sensor was also fragile and needed to have strain relief added.
