Open system technology consolidates automation controls
Yaskawa's i³ Control (“iCube” Control) is an open system platform deigned to consolidate a variety of automation controls into one centralized controller.
Yaskawa will introduce i³ Control (“iCube” Control), their new single control technology, during Pack Expo 2022 at McCormick Place in Chicago. iCube Control debuted in the European market earlier this year and is now being introduced in North America. This breakthrough open system platform consolidates a variety of automation controls into one centralized controller, allowing for seamless and secure collaboration by teams across different locations. iCube Control, which combines powerful, modular hardware with a flexible software infrastructure, is easily scalable and fully customizable to meet the individual needs of its users.
This machine control platform includes five elements:
i³ MC, a machine controller for motion, logic, kinematics, safety and more.
i³ Engineer, which promotes multi-location collaboration by providing a single environment for motion, logic and safety programming.
i³ Data, a dedicated control module for real-time data acquisition, processing, communication and feedback.
i³ Web, a secure web-based management platform.
i³ Kinematics, which delivers integrated control and safety for Delta, SCARA, 6-axis, Gantry and customer-specific mechanisms.
