The KUKA KR C4 Compact controller improves upon the flexibility, power, and intelligence of earlier controller models. The KRC4 compact offers effortless control of the entire system and all of the functionality and performance of the original KR C4 in a smaller package for increased space savings. KUKA has reduced hardware components, as well as cables and connectors to reduce the space needed to house the controller, replacing it with more software-based solutions.
While the KR-C4 compact controller is a space saver, it has many other key features, including effortless control, open architecture to improve versatility with KUKA robots and external axes, as well as speaking multiple languages – CNC and PLC, to be exact. While it robust, this controller is runs quietly, and the energy consumption has been cut by 95% - a perfect addition, especially for the company trying to save money while still going green. This robot can be paired with the KUKA smartPAD.
