Compact robot controller functionality extended -

ABB Robotics has extended the functionality of its IRC5 compact controller to six additional robot families. The unit now supports the IRB 120, IRB 140, IRB 260, IRB 360 FlexPicker™, IRB 1410, and IRB 1600 robot families. The controller is compatible with the standard- and panel-mount IRC-5 controllers, providing the same functionality in a portable model.

The compact unit also enables simplified commissioning through the one-phase power input; external connectors for all signals; and a built-in, expandable 16-in, 16-out I/O system. The system also supports the use of RobotStudio for offline programming and remote service for online condition monitoring.
