This Motoman Yaskawa robot is a high payload six axis industrial robot with a horizontal working envelope of 2651 mm. It is the evolution of its predecessor, the famous UP165 with XRC controller. It is suitable for welding, general handling, machining and also general purpose applications which require a high payload at a relative long working distance. The robot is equipped with the powerful Yaskawa Motoman NX100 controller which features a Windows CE programming pendant with full colour LCD touch screen display. It offers high speed processing, unmatched memory (60,000 steps, 10,000 instructions), built-in ethernet and a robust PC-architecture. The NX100 easily handles multiple tasks and can control up to four robots plus external axes (max 36 axes) and I/O devices. Advanced Robot Motion control (ARM) provides high performance path accuracy and motion control. The control system’s PC architecture offers unlimited communication with other systems via a wide range of communication protocols. The improved integrated PLC will in many cases eliminate the need for a separate PLC, saving costs at the system level.
