FluxGrip is shipping 🧲 🚚

FluxGrip is a new electro-permanent magnet (EPM) developed by Zubax Robotics for payload attachment in drones and other machinery.

After a series of delays caused by diverse engineering challenges and manufacturing issues, the mass production of FluxGrip FG40 has finally started, and the first pre-orders are already being fulfilled. If your pre-order has not shipped yet, expect the shipment notification within the next 4 weeks as we work through the order backlog on a first-come, first-served basis. New orders are being accepted with the estimated shipping date in late August.

The specifications of FluxGrip FG40 are as follows:

  • mass 70 g
  • dimensions 41x41x23 mm
  • holding force over 20 kgf
  • zero power consumption in steady state; switching energy under 4 J
  • power supply 4 to 30 VDC
  • primary (de)magnetization in under 0.5 s, full magnetization 1.4 s (much faster at higher voltages)
  • control and telemetry via CAN (Cyphal/CAN by default; custom protocols upon request), RC PWM, or voltage level
  • IP69 sealing; can operate underwater
  • operating temperature from -40 to +80 C ambient
  • AEC-Q grade 2 qualified components
  • designed and manufactured in the EU; customization available upon request (email sales@zubax.com)

A series of usage guides will be posted on this forum soon to help integrate FluxGrip into various end systems. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to support@zubax.com or post a response below.
