Compact Robot Controller

Compact Robot Controller

ABB Robotics has extended the functionality of its IRC5 Compact controller to six additional robot families. This offers the benefits of a greatly reduced controller footprint and simplified commissioning to a wider range of applications.

The desktop sized IRC5 is fully compatible with the standard and panel mount IRC-5 controllers, and offers superior motion control, user friendly FlexPendant programming, flexible RAPID language and powerful communication capabilities.

The IRC5 also enables easy 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 supports the use of RobotStudio for offline programming and remote service for on-line condition monitoring. This allows manufacturers and integrators to optimize cell design and helps prevent costly downtime or production delays.
