Nachi Australia has introduced AX 10 PC based robot controller with colour graphic touch screen teach pendant. This new controller has the ability to install two 7 axis drive units for flexibility in servo gun and material handling applications.
The functionality of the servo system allows for short opening and closing times as well as allowing fast path generation and I/O control.
AX 10 controller has high speed interference detection software which reduces the risk of equipment damage, sensing potential collisions in just milliseconds
Software PLC features:
Designed to help reduce equipment costs, AX 10 controller features a software PLC. Peripheral equipment that used to require a separate control cabinet (for hardware PLC) can be controlled directly from AX 10 controller using the international PLC language IEC1131.
Ladder logic can be edited directly from teach pendant. Additional, offline programming can be done using commercially available tools or Nachi’s own offline programming tool AX on desk
Other software features include easy-to-use PC programming tools for developing and validating robot programs. The operation and maintenance manual is software based and eliminates the need for printed materials.
Maintenance is simplified with visual clues-if an error occurs, the likely causes and remedies are graphically displayed on the teach pendant.
The AX 10 controller is equipped with enhanced colour graphic teach pendant with expanded programming capabilities, Windows display, pull down menus, dedicated keys and an optional digital touch screen.
The teach pendant is lightweight and has been ergonomically designed with function and safety keys readily accessible for the operator. Using enhanced software, the operator is able to customise the program and information displayed on the teach pendant according to particular application.
Several sets of information (up to four windows) can be displayed at the same time on the 6.5” colour LCD teach pendant screen making operation easy.
