Zaber's X-GLP-E Series are computer-controlled electric grippers with motor-mounted encoders. They are stand-alone units requiring only a standard 24 V power supply. The motor encoder allows for closed-loop operation, detecting when the fingers have gripped an object and providing feedback about the object's size.

An indexed knob provides smooth manual control at variable speeds in both directions for versatile operation even without a computer. Press and hold to switch between velocity mode and distance mode, turn to move the gripper fingers, and press to stop. Gripper devices connect to the USB 2.0 or RS-232 port of any computer and can be chained with several units per chain. They can be chained with any other Zaber products. Convenient locking, 4-pin, M8 connectors on the unit allow for easy and secure connection. The chain also shares power, so multiple X-Series products can use a single power supply.

Zaber's positioners with built-in controllers, stand-alone controllers, and joysticks are divided into three series: the T-Series, the A-Series, and the X-Series. Please refer to our Series Reference Table for more information.
