Compact robot controller
04 March 2013
FANUC says its latest robot controller is packed with smart features to boost control and productivity. Four key focus areas allow the new R-30iB robot controller to save up to 77% floor area, programme faster and easier, save power and maximise productivity.
Overall volume of the R-30iB design is reduced by 68%; it measures just 500 x 600 x 470mm.
The design provides further benefits in multi-robot systems where the controller is able to stack; three stacked up controllers reduces the floor space required by 77%.
Using the same platform as the new FANUC 30i CNC controller, the revised robot controller packs the same power, and more, as its larger predecessor with more than 4096 I/O supported, 40 axes control capability and 8 motion groups, up to 4 line tracking encoders and support for most common industrial communication/bus systems.
