The omega.x family of haptic devices combine performance and design into one of the most accomplished and modular haptic interfaces ever built. The device can be declined in three versions that provide translational, rotational and grasping capabilities.
omega.3 - omega.6 - omega.7
With fine polished kinematic links and an anodized aluminum frame, the omega.3 displays unparalleled solidity with simplicity and style. Its finely textured spherical end-effector offers a universal interface for both left and right handed users. This highly ergonomic and distinctive design makes the omega.3 a device of choice when performing dexterous robotic telemanipulation tasks, or for instinctively interacting with complex virtual environments that demand user-friendly interfaces with optimal usability.
The omega.6 haptic device sports a pen-shaped end-effector with a wide range of wrist motion. Building on the omega.x base, its design provides perfect decoupling of translation and rotation movements. The omega.6 comes in either left- or right-hand configuration and leverages all translational force feedback capabilities of the omega.3. The Haptic SDK provides full access to the wrist orientation as either joint angle values or as a rotation matrix expressed in Cartesian space. The position of the device end-effector is provided in Cartesian coordinates.
With its unique active grasping extension, the omega.7 is one of the most versatile haptic devices available. Its end-effector covers the natural range of motion of the human hand and is compatible with bi-manual teleoperation console design. The combination of full gravity compensation and driftless calibration contributes to greater user comfort and accuracy. The active gripper can generate a grasping force of up to 8 Newtons in both directions. The omega.7 comes in either left or right hand configuration and leverages all translational force feedback capabilities of the omega.3.
