Phantom Premium Haptic Devices

The Geomagic® Phantom® Premium™ (formerly Sensable Phantom Premium) haptic devices fulfill the requirements of a vast range of research and commercial applications. These high-precision devices provide the largest workspaces and highest forces in the Phantom line while offering a broad range of force feedback workspaces, various ranges of motion and varying stiffness. Phantom Premium haptic devices also come in 6DOF models, which offer six degrees of freedom (3 translational, 3 torque) in output capabilities. CONTACT SALES

With ranges of motion approximating hand movement pivoting at the wrist, elbow or shoulder, the Phantom Premium can fulfill the requirements of manufacturing verification, machine component visualization, medical research and simulation, and an assortment of other haptically enabled 3D applications.

Three models make up the Phantom Premium line of haptic devices: Premium 1.0, Premium 1.5 and 1.5/HF, and Premium 3.0. While the models are designed with different ranges of motion and specifications, each one is constructed for maximum durability and simple PC connection via the parallel port (EPP) interface. See below for more information on the individual models.

PHANTOM Premium 1.0

The Premium 1.0 haptic device provides a range of motion approximating hand movement pivoting at the wrist. This device includes a passive stylus and thimble gimbal and provides 3 degrees of freedom positional sensing and 3 degrees of freedom force feedback. An encoder stylus gimbal can be purchased separately, enabling the measurement of an additional 3 degrees of positional sensing (pitch, roll & yaw). The Premium 1.0 device connects to the PC via the parallel port (EPP) interface.

 

PHANTOM Premium 1.5 & 1.5 HIGH FORCE

The Premium 1.5 haptic device provides a range of motion approximating lower arm movement pivoting at the elbow. This device includes a passive stylus and thimble gimbal and provides 3 degrees of freedom positional sensing and 3 degrees of freedom force-feedback. An encoder stylus gimbal can be purchased separately, enabling the measurement of pitch, roll & yaw. A PHANTOM Premium 1.5 HF (High Force) device is also available, and includes a built-in gear box option that provides higher forces. The thimble attachment is currently not available.

 

PHANTOM Premium 3.0

The Premium 3.0 haptic device provides a range of motion approximating full arm movement pivoting at the shoulder. This device includes either a finger sled or a handle gimbal (choice of one) and provides 3 degrees of freedom positional sensing and 3 degrees of freedom force feedback. An encoder stylus gimbal can be purchased separately, enabling the measurement of an additional 3 degrees of positional sensing (pitch, roll & yaw). The encoder-stylus, finger sled and handle gimbal arm assemblies may also be purchased separately and can be installed by the user. The Premium 3.0 device connects to the PC via the parallel port (EPP) interface.

 

Geomagic® Phantom® Premium™ 6DOF (Degrees of Freedom)

The premier haptic products in the Geomagic® Phantom® line, (formerly Sensable) Phantom Premium 6DOF haptic devices offer highly accurate 3D object manipulation and allow users to explore application areas that require force feedback in six degrees of freedom rather than three, such as virtual prototyping, maintenance path planning and molecular modeling. CONTACT SALES

In addition to force feedback along the x-, y- and z-axis, the Phantom Premium 6DOF haptic device simulates torque force feedback in three rotational degrees of freedom: yaw, pitch and roll. Incorporating six degrees of freedom, these motorized devices provide more complete touch-based feedback that allows users to feel collision and reaction torques on a part in a virtual assembly path or feel the rotational torques supported by a remote slave robot in a teleoperation environment.

The Phantom Premium 6DOF family of haptic devices is comprised of three models. The Phantom Premium 1.5/6DOF and 1.5HF/6DOF provide a range of motion approximating lower arm movement pivoting at the elbow. A larger haptic device, the Phantom Premium 3.0 6DOF provides a greater range of motion, approximating full arm movement pivoting at the shoulder.

Phantom Premium 6DOF devices can also be fitted with optional end effectors that provide pinch functionality, simulating a seventh degree of freedom, for application in medicine, manufacturing and more.

 

Phantom Premium 1.5 and 1.5 High Force (HF) 6DOF Devices

The Phantom Premium 1.5/6DOF and 1.5HF/6DOF haptic devices provide a range of motion approximating lower arm movement pivoting at the elbow. These devices provide force feedback in three translational degrees of freedom as well as torque feedback in three rotational degrees of freedom in the yaw, pitch and roll directions. The Premium 1.5HF device includes a built-in gear box option that provides higher forces. The 1.5/6DOF and the 1.5HF/6DOF devices connect to the PC via the parallel port (EPP) interface. The 1.5/6DOF and 1.5HF/6DOF devices now ship with chrome components.

 

Phantom Premium 3.0 6DOF

The 3.0/6DOF provides a range of motion approximating full arm movement pivoting at the shoulder. This device provides force feedback in three translational degrees of freedom as well as torque feedback in three rotational degrees of freedom in the yaw, pitch and roll directions. The 3.0/6DOF device connects to the PC via the parallel port (EPP) interface. The 3.0/6DOF device now ships with chrome components.

 

7 DOF Option for Phantom 6 DOF Devices

A new handle design for the PHANTOM 6 DOF family of haptic devices enables attaching interchangeable end effectors that provide pinch functionality -- 7 DOF positional sensing and 6 DOF haptic feedback. Take advantage of all the benefits of a full 6 DOF haptic controller plus the option to add two different pinch grips.
