Dual robot controller
The MLX100 Robot Gateway by Yaskawa Motoman offers a PLC and robot integration that programs through the same PLC ladder logic code used for machines and conveyors.
Yaskawa Motoman has enhanced functionality of dual-robot control with its MLX100 Robot Gateway. MLX100 enables controlling and programming of Motoman robots entirely within the ControlLogix platform, eliminating the need for an additional controller or language for robotic application development.
MLX100 offers a seamless PLC and robot integration as robots are programmed through the same PLC ladder logic code that is widely used for controlling peripheral equipment such as filling machines, packaging machines and conveyors. This modular, unified control architecture allows faster robotic application development.
A multitude of applications are possible on the MLX100 platform, including applications requiring vision guidance and line tracking: assembly, part transfer, picking, sorting, kitting, case packing, palletizing and de-palletizing. Select Motoman robots (4-7 axis; 5-300 kg payload) are available with the MLX100 Robot Gateway. Any combination of the available models can be used for dual-robot applications.
