Options and special information

Light band for variants for Universal Robots and FANUC 

Actuation of the light band is possible for the version –UREK with external cabling for Universal Robots. For the version –URID, the digital signals for actuation are not available. For FANUC (version –FCR7), use of the light band is possible for direct connection of the gripper to the robot control system. For the connection via the EE interface, the actuation of the light band is not provided.


Manually adjustable gripping force 

With an integrated rotary switch, the gripping force can be adjusted for the Co-act EGP-C 40 in four stages from 100%, 75%, 50%, and 25%. To adjust the gripping force, the service flap must be opened.


Integrated sensor system 

The gripper has two integrated inductive proximity switches. Hereby, the monitoring of the “Open” and “Closed” position of the gripper is monitored as standard. A sensor can alternatively be used depending on the area for work piece monitoring. For this, the sensor must be manually adjusted. For this, a service flap must be opened for the size 40.

SAC – safety notes 

In the enclosed assembly and operating manual, extensive safety notes on the use of the gripper are also included. The instructions also provide information and recommendations on the overall application.



The weight comprises the entire Co-act gripper including cable and connecting plug.
