The FANUC R-30iB is a high-performance controller that brings a higher level of productivity to the production floor. It offers hardware and the latest advances in network communications, integrated iRVision, and motion control functions. The iPendant has a touch screen with 4D graphics that displays process information and the actual process path, allowing for a much easier set up. Additionally, FANUC has minimized the controller space by 68 percent, saving floor space for the manufacturer, or allowing the manufacturer to stack controllers for multi-robotic installations.
This controller also helps to save energy as it requires less power consumption with its external power switch The R-30iB also has a cooling fan auto-stop that reduces power by switching off during breaks, a brake control function that reduces power through the automatic braking motor if the robot is idle for an elongated period of time, and a Roboguide power optimization function that minimizes power and optimizes energy savings for the consumer.
The controller also has an optional energy-saving design that recovers kinetic energy during braking and returns it to the system to be reused during the next cycle.
While the controller increases energy savings, and, in turn, decreases energy costs, it also enhances the productivity of any company through an enhanced brake release, robot motion optimization and smart vibration control for the robot arm to reduce cycle times and produce smoother movement.
