Yaskawa Motoman Introduces High-Performance, Ultra-Compact YRC1000micro Robot Controller
Dayton, OH (September 2018) — The smallest robot controller in its class, the ultra-compact YRC1000micro minimizes installation space and optimizes performance with power and precision.
A small footprint and lightweight cabinet make the YRC1000micro ideal for factories with high density layouts, where stacking of controllers may be required. This space-saving design enables installation in either a vertical or horizontal position, as well as within a 19-inch rack, accommodating a wide range of layouts.
Optimized acceleration / deceleration control can improve the robot’s cycle time up to 10%, and high path accuracy control enables increased precision in trajectory performance independently of motion speed. Its robust motion software allows for highly accurate path planning, often resulting in reduced cycle times.
A single controller-to-robot cable improves cable reliability, and interactive preventive maintenance data allows for simplified maintenance scheduling and robot performance analysis.
The YRC1000micro is offered with select Yaskawa Motoman robot models.
The YRC1000micro features an ergonomic, lightweight teach pendant with a user-friendly touch screen interface that facilitates fast and easy programming. 3D simulation of robot motion can be evaluated on screen before or during robot execution, and a USB connection allows service staff to directly connect for remote service purposes. An SD card slot enables easy transfer of job programs.
For select Yaskawa Motoman robot models, the YRC1000micro is available with the Smart Pendant. Ideal for novice users, the Smart Pendant offers an intuitive interface that easily adapts to the user’s style for easy operation.
