The S12 offers such advantages as absolute serial encoder positioning that requires no calibration at power-up, a small footprint for tight installations, and fail-safe brakes on all axes. The s12's low arm mass and rigid design allows precise positioning and high speeds. The FANUC S-12 requires no modifications for upright, inverted, angle, shelf, or wall mounting. The tooling electrical and pneumatic services are internally routed to the wrist.
