ABB Robotics unveils second generation compact robot controller


2014-12-05 - Renowned for its outstanding performance and quality, the footprint of the IRC5C from ABB is now up to 25 percent smaller.

ABB today unveiled the IRC5C, its second generation compact industrial robot controller. A full-fledged member of the IRC5 family of industrial robot controllers, the IRC5C comes equipped with the majority of the functionality and benefits of its larger counterpart; now in an even smaller footprint (310H x 449W x 442D mm).

"The IRC5C is 87 percent smaller than its larger counterpart the IRC5," says Henrik Jerregard, ABB Product Manager, Robot Controllers. "It can easily be integrated, save valuable space and deliver exceptional versatility for our customers; all without sacrificing performance. It is also the perfect companion to our small robot family."

The new IRC5C's also comes equipped with a new clean operator panel and its cable connections have been improved for greater ease-of-use and improved access. For example, there are external connectors for all signals and a built in expandable 16-in, 16-out I/O system.

Despite its small size, the IRC5C retains the superior motion control of its larger counterpart. This motion control technology, featuring TrueMove™ and QuickMove™, is central to ABB Robotics' well-known performance in terms of accuracy, speed, cycle-time, programmability and synchronization with external devices. The controller is also makes it exceptionally easy to quickly integrate additional hardware and sensors, such as ABB's Integrated Vision.

ABB has installed more than 250,000 robots worldwide. All ABB Robotics' products are fully supported by the ABB Robotics' global sales and service organization in 53 countries and over 100 locations.
