  • Motoman MLX200 Controller

Motoman MPL80 Motoman DX100

The Motoman DX100 is an open communication dynamic next-generation controller with the ability to control up to 8 robots (72 axes max). It has fast processing speeds that lead to high performances, smooth interpolation, and open communication. Floor space is able to be efficiently utilized with the use of the DX100 as the connections are on the back of the unit.  The DX100 uses Advanced Robot Motion (ARM) control and is best-in class for path planning which helps to decrease teaching time.

Energy saving (up to 25%) and safety-compliant, the DX100 is programmed through a small and lightweight Windows CE color screen teach pendant. This input device includes features a unique cross-shaped navigation cursor which helps to reduce teaching time and improve productivity.

Additionally, the pendant has a convenient and compact flash slot to help facilitate backups and all it houses all of the operator controls. The DX100 reduces the need for separate PLC and HMI devices. This results in a significant cost savings when integrating a robotic workcell. Furthermore, there is a maintenance with reducer status check function to help enhance trouble shooting and alarm recovery.

Smaller DX-series controller options include the DXM100 or the upgraded and powerful DX200.

Motoman MPL80 Motoman MLX200

The Motoman MLX200 features an optimized robot motion software that has a unified controls architecture, working with and consuming less resources from the Rockwell Automation Programmable Automation Controllers (PAC).  This advanced controller does not require a separate programming language or controller and enables more application possibilities and integrates Motoman robots with ease. It can add multi-robot control and the ability to control robots through the familiar ControlLogix and Compact Logix and intuitive Add-On-Instructions (AOIs) within RSLogix™ / Studio 5000™ Logix Designer environment/platforms.

The robot drives are panel-mounted allowing the ability for integration in the main control cabinet, reducing the amount of hardware, floor space, or spare parts necessary. Furthermore, these set-up of the hardware and controls is simplified which helps to eliminate redundant interfaces.  The reduced system complexity and single application developement ultimately brings a faster time-to-market to the manufacturer as there is one programmer and a very simplified control scheme.

The MLX 200 is packed with a variety of advanced robot kinematics, as well as motion planning algorithms, which allow programmers to more easily plan robot paths for applications, as well as blending of motion for entire robot kinematics. Plus, the simplified hardware architecture eliminates redundancy and reduces the setup time and complexity while also improving the reliability of the system.  Check out the wide range of robots available on this platform, from 4- to 7-axes robots with payloads from 5-300 kilograms.
