The Motoman DX200 Controller

Aug 19, 2014

The controllers for the robotic system act as a brain, helping to control the robot and its arm. Motoman's DX200 controller offers the power to coordinate motion between up to 8 robots and 72 axes. The DX200 controller can bring a boost in your productivity, efficiency, and overall programming ease.


A robot arm moves in a way sim­i­lar to a human arm, work­ing to per­form a task. How­ev­er, with­out a brain, the human arm is unable to receive the infor­ma­tion nec­es­sary to per­form that process. For Motoman robots, the con­troller is much like the brain of the robot sys­tem – and the Motoman DX200 is one of the more pow­er­ful brains” on the market.

The DX200 con­troller is from the new­er gen­er­a­tion of Motoman con­trollers, which means it has the pow­er to coor­di­nate motion between sev­er­al robots and low­er inte­gra­tion costs, accord­ing to Motoman Robot­ics. Because it can con­trol up to 8 robots or 72 axes, it also improves the pro­duc­tiv­i­ty of robot­ic line, as well as the flex­i­bil­i­ty of the appli­ca­tion being per­formed. These advan­tages alone will improve the over­all pro­duc­tion time for a line and get prod­ucts out to cus­tomers quicker.

How­ev­er, the advan­tages of the DX-200 Motoman con­troller do not stop there. This con­troller also is friend­ly not only to the envi­ron­ment by being ener­gy effi­cient, but it is also time-friend­ly for the man­u­fac­tur­er. The teach pen­dant for the DX 200 has Win­dows pro­gram­ming, which makes the inter­face more famil­iar for oper­a­tors, and the advanced robot motion con­trol helps to min­i­mize the time need­ed for train­ing. This means that with the DX 200 Motoman con­troller, man­u­fac­tur­ers can cut down on the train­ing time need­ed between inte­gra­tion and start of pro­duc­tion to almost nothing.
