It is suitable for a variety of applications and has IP40 protection as standard. It can also be used in cleanroom environments and has IP67 protection with options available for foundry environments. The robot is adaptable at any angle and offers a large work area usable on a compact surface. It is equipped with the latest IRC5 controller which supports the state-of-the-art field busses for I/O and is a well-behaved node in any plant network. The IRC5 controller’s motion control technology, TrueMove & QuickMove, is key to the robot’s performance in terms of accuracy, speed, cycle-time, programmability and synchronization with external devices. The RAPID programming language is used to program the robot. It is a truly unlimited language with hosts of advanced features and powerful support for many process applications.
