Robotics Functions

Extended joint tracking

Simultaneous control of conveyor and robots enables high tracking accuracy.

Dual Arm Control

Allows a single controller to control two SCARA robots. Saves space and simplifies operations

External axis control

By adding an extended joint board (EtherCAT), servomotors of various capacities can be controlled.

Circular tracking

This function enables the robot to track workpieces on an arc path, achieving operation without stopping the index table, etc. Setup can be performed with the wizard-type GUI, achieving easy introduction.

High-precision calibration

The high-accuracy calibration function improves the absolute accuracy to reduce differences between robots, significantly decreasing the man-hours required for teaching.

Extended-joint support specification

Extended joints can be controlled by the same interface as the robot. They can be easily adjusted using the Auto Gain Tuning function.

Conveyer tracking

Since a robot can track workpieces, workpieces can be conveyed and aligned without stopping the conveyer.

Compliance Control Function with Force Sensor

Constant control of a pressing force of a tip of the robot hand with force sensor. Stable operation on assembling, grinding and other work by using this function.

Cooperative Control

By using two or more robots, heavy loads and long loads can be conveyed and assembled.

Exclusion control

This function can prevent more than one robot from entering the exclusive area.

Virtual fence

The virtual fence prevents the robot from colliding with surrounding facilities.

External TCP

The external TCP function enables rotation about the coordinate origin of a workpiece, making it possible to easily teach the robot with reference to the object.

EtherCAT Slave motion

Allows centralized robot path generation from an IPC with EtherCAT Master installed.

Autofig

Automatically calculates the optimal “figure” for motion to a designated position resulting in reduction of setup time.

Motion Skip

This function enables the robot to change the target point without stopping operation in the automatic mode.

High-accuracy Path Control

This function decreases any change in the path due to change in speed, to improve path accuracy in the arc motion and the free curve interpolation motion.

Singular Point Avoiding Function

When the robot passes through points in proximity to a singular point or other points where the posture of the robot changes, which requires linear interpolation, use of the singular point avoiding function enables the robot to move smoothly.

Collision detection

When the robot collides with a peripheral device or workpiece, this function detects the collision and brings the robot to an emergency stop.

Compliance control function

The compliance control function protects workpieces and hands from excessive load by adjusting the pressing force.

Optimal Speed Setting

Optimizing motion speed and acceleration according to the load on the tip of the robot arm shortens the tact time.

Command Slave

Robots can be controlled with PLC languages (ladder programs). Function blocks that support 107 robot commands are offered.

b-CAP (communications protocol)

By directly sending packets of motion commands to the robot from a PC, PLC or other device, the robot can be controlled.

Provider

A provider enables the direct control of various factory automation products (image processing apparatuses, sensors, hands, etc.) using PacScript (DENSO robot language).
