Meet the KUKA smartPAD

Jun 21, 2010

The KUKA smartPad brings a fresh approach to the past KUKA controller technology. There are a variety of hardware and software enhancement that KUKA offers. The KUKA smartPad is ergonomic, colorful, and highly-interactive, weighing at just 1,000 grams.


Easy to use and ever so hip, the KUKA smart­PAD offers a fresh approach to robot­ic teach pen­dant tech­nol­o­gy. A num­ber of hard­ware and soft­ware enhance­ments make KUKA’s new prod­uct unique.

Robot oper­a­tors will appre­ci­ate the KUKA smart­PAD’s ergonom­ic, col­or­ful, and high­ly-inter­ac­tive design. Plus, the smart­PAD isn’t heavy; it weighs just 1,000grams.

Com­mands are eas­i­ly inputted using mul­ti­func­tion keys, a 6D mouse, and the antire­flec­tion touch screen. KUKA has designed the smart­PAD with more flex­i­bil­i­ty, allow­ing keys and graph­i­cal inter­faces to work in multiple,context-driven modes.

A hot-plug fea­ture allows the smart­PAD to be detached from a run­ning robot sys­tem when it is not in use. This capa­bil­i­ty increas­es over­all safe­ty and makes it pos­si­ble to use the same pen­dant for mul­ti­ple work­cells.

Oth­er hard­ware fea­tures include an inte­grat­ed USB port and two addi­tion­al axis switch­es so a total of eight axes can be con­trolled through keys.
