Kuka iiwa torque sensor calibration and maintenance
« on: March 21, 2018, 05:30:31 PM »
Rookie question:
How often do you have to check and calibrate the torque sensors on the Kuka iiwa?
What else do you need to check on a regular basis?
I cant seem to find the answer in their documentation

Thanks in advance!

There isn't a Torque sensors calibration for the iiwa per se, for you as a programmer. 
The only thing I do in this matter, is to run the "PositionAndGMSReferencing" program, when I want to declare a safe work environment, or remaster the axes in the rare event for collision or axes limit excess.
I've been using the iiwas since 2015, they don't need much maintenance.
