It is the ideal control solution for complete robotic cells, high-speed motion systems, material handling and multi-robot systems.
The Robotics Integrated Platform is the next revolutionary step in the SYSMAC ecosystem that seamlessly integrates the full Omron Fixed Robotics product line. Their one controller approach integrates robot control, in addition to sequence and motion control, to a single controller.
This enables synchronized control of robots as well as other devices and results in higher performance compared to typical network based configurations. It also enables users to collect information on devices aligned to a common timeline which not only improves overall system response times and accuracy but also greatly aids in troubleshooting activities.
