DENSO Robotics Minimizes the Size of Robot Controllers

– New controller RC8 for industrial use is the world’s smallest of its class; fulfills highest security standards – 

Compatibility, flexibility, and easy handling – these are the demands of companies utilizing industrial robots. DENSO Robotics, recognized as the world leader of small assembly industrial robots, launches the new RC8 controller; the smallest industrial robot control in the 3-kw-class. The new control is 60% smaller than the current models. It is 94mm high, and has a surface area of 456 x 298 mm, which is roughly the size of an A3 sheet of paper.

The control fulfills the common security standards ISO and UL, therefore the device functions all around the world. Moreover, the RC8 has the globally standardized ports for Ethernet/IP, Profibus, and DeviceNet. It can communicate with more than 100 industrial devices via the ORiN network. That is why it is the best solution for various branches is to program the robot control system.

„The today’s market demands industrial robots, and control elements, which meet international security standards, but do not require much space. At the same time, they have to be able to communicate with other industrial devices, and software“, explains Ryoji Nagashima, head of robotics at DENSO Japan. „The positive feedback of our clients shows that the new RC8-control meets highest quality standards of industrial companies.“ In the end, the RC8 helps with saving space, which means money.

You can find DENSO Robotics at Automatica Munich from May 22-25. Hall B2, Booth 317
