The Motoman MLX200 features an optimized robot motion software that has a unified controls architecture, working with and consuming less resources from the Rockwell Automation Programmable Automation Controllers (PAC). This advanced controller does not require a separate programming language or controller and enables more application possibilities and integrates Motoman robots with ease. It can add multi-robot control and the ability to control robots through the familiar ControlLogix and Compact Logix and intuitive Add-On-Instructions (AOIs) within RSLogix™ / Studio 5000™ Logix Designer environment/platforms.
The robot drives are panel-mounted allowing the ability for integration in the main control cabinet, reducing the amount of hardware, floor space, or spare parts necessary. Furthermore, these set-up of the hardware and controls is simplified which helps to eliminate redundant interfaces. The reduced system complexity and single application developement ultimately brings a faster time-to-market to the manufacturer as there is one programmer and a very simplified control scheme.
The MLX 200 is packed with a variety of advanced robot kinematics, as well as motion planning algorithms, which allow programmers to more easily plan robot paths for applications, as well as blending of motion for entire robot kinematics. Plus, the simplified hardware architecture eliminates redundancy and reduces the setup time and complexity while also improving the reliability of the system. Check out the wide range of robots available on this platform, from 4- to 7‑axes robots with payloads from 5 – 300 kilograms.
