DX200 Controller

The new DX200 robot controller builds on the robust process capabilities of the current DX100 controller, including: patented multiple robot control technology with coordinated motion between devices (up to eight robots/72 axes), award-winning ergonomic teach pendant, built-in PLC cell control capability, and optimized path and process control capability. The energy-saving DX200 features faster processing speeds, enhanced control-reliable safety and improved maintainability.

MH12 Robot
The new MH12 six-axis robot provides superior performance in assembly, dispensing, material handling, machine tending and packaging applications. It features a new curved upper arm that enhances its reach and allows a wider range of applications. This model has a large work envelope that extends behind the robot, permitting space for robot tool storage or maintenance. The MH12 robot features an increased 12 kg payload, and higher moment and inertia ratings over previous "payload class" models, enabling it to carry larger and heavier payloads.

MPP3S Robot
The new MPP3S delta-style, low-profile "short" robot is specifically designed for high-speed applications including packaging, cartoning and kitting. It features a 3 kg payload and an 800 mm diameter horizontal reach with a z-stroke of up to 300 mm. The MPP3S complements the MPP3, a larger delta-style robot, by offering the same high application performance in 20% less installation space. Both of these models are compatible with the FS100 controller.
