It's explosive! Perhaps that's what KUKA Robotics was hinting at when it named its new controller the KR C4. This robotic controller is on a mission to break down barriers and usher in a new generation of open controls.
Up to this point, most robotic controllers have been a bit restrictive when it comes to hardware. Robot manufacturers typically build controllers with proprietary components.
By taking advantage of current, open technologies such as Gigabit Ethernet and multi-core architecture, KUKA Robotics has created a robot controller that is compact, affordable, and durable. Even the software is structured differently - with all the components sharing a database and infrastructure.
The KR C4 is literally shorter than its forerunner, the KR C2 controller. This makes it an attractive, space-efficient option. Items such as couplers for cell safety systems or Ethernet-based field bus systems are now directly incorporated just with software. KUKA Robotics proposes this will lead to greater controller longevity and fewer maintenance needs.
