PLC Robot Control
Yaskawa’s PLC integration solutions provide an interface that enables the programming and control of Yaskawa Motoman industrial robots with the widely accepted Rockwell Automation Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs). End users of robotic automation can deploy and support a broad range of Motoman robots with their existing staff and take ownership of their robotic applications.
The MLX family has evolved over time and now offers MLX300. This software provides a well-integrated environment that leverages the knowledge and experience of the PLC programmer, while providing access to industry leading robot technology. The robots are programmed through intuitive Add-On Instructions (AOIs) within the RSLogix 5000® / Studio Logix Designer® environment. Optimum performance is maintained using proven kinematics solutions.
If your staff understands and supports Rockwell Automation RSLogix™ software, MLX300 will provide the easiest way to develop, train and support your plant personnel.
MLX300 is a software solution built upon Yaskawa’s DX200, YRC1000 and YRC1000micro robot controllers. This solution enables all control and programming of the Motoman robots through the existing PLC. Key features and advantages of MLX300 include:
Broad range of supported robots
All DX200 material handling robots
All YRC100/YRC1000micro material handling robots (except HC10)
Optional Functional Safety Unit
