ABB Controllers Increase Control and Reduce Integration Time


ABB industrial robot controllers guarantee superior motion control and quick integration of additional hardware.

IRC5, ABB’s fifth generation robot controller, features the motion control technology TrueMove and QuickMove. This technology is essential to the robot’s accuracy, speed, cycle time, ability to be programmed, and synchronization with external devices. It also boasts FlexPendant with touch screen and joystick programming, flexible RAPID language, and powerful communication capabilities. 

ABB has now introduced its smallest version of the IRC5 – the IRC5 Compact. This miniature version still allows the user to reap all the benefits of the IRC5, now with a smaller footprint. 

IRC5P is a paint robot control system specifically designed for the paintshop, equipped with FlexPaint Pendant. The IRC5P increases uptime and has an intuitive paint user interface and an easy integration of the paint process.  It is powered by IPS, the high-speed process control, which not only cuts cycle time but saves paint as well.

ABB’s ControlMaster universal process controllers make process control simple. The ControlMaster range elevates process monitoring and control to a level not seen before. The concept at the heart of ControlMaster is control made easy.  Each instrument provides a comprehensive display of process status with a simple-to-use interface. 

RobotWare is ABB’s controller software, and is crucial for functionality. There are optional plug-ins available depending on the user’s needs, like multitasking, transferring information, communication with external systems, and performing advanced motion tasks.

SafeMove represents the next generation in robot safety. SafeMove makes human-robot collaboration and teamwork possible by removing the bonds placed on industrial robots. It is an electronics and software-based solution that provides safe and predictable robot motion.
