ABB Robotics' second generation IRC5C is an industrial robot controller that is equipped with a clean operator panel, and improved cable connections for easier access and use. Courtesy: ABB RoboticsABB Robotics' second generation IRC5C is an industrial robot controller that is up to 25% smaller than the original compact model. The IRC5C comes equipped with the majority of the functionality and benefits of its larger counterpart. The IRC5C also comes equipped with a clean operator panel, and improved cable connections for easier access and use. There are now, for example, external connectors for all signals, and a built-in, expandable 16-in, 16-out I/O system. The IRC5C retains the motion control of the IRC5, featuring TrueMove and QuickMove. These features are designed to help ABB robots perform in terms of accuracy, speed, cycle-time, programmability and synchronization with external devices. The controller also makes it easy to quickly integrate additional hardware and sensors, such as ABB’s Integrated Vision.
