Development and construction of original robots facilitated

This is a motion controller ideal for developing original, custom robots, which was developed based on the robot controller RC8.

Technical Feature

  • Excellent ease of operation reduces time for commissioning.

    ● Since offline software and the teaching pendant are
    the same as those of DENSO robots, users can use
    their familiar operation system and program
    description language, reducing the number of
    man-hours needed for startup.
    ● Using safety circuits that are incorporated into the
    MC8 reduces the number of man-hours needed to
    design emergency stop and other functions.
    ● Equipped with auto gain tuning and other adjustment
    functions, this product helps smooth commissioning.

  • Can control up to eight axes and has
    great potential for expansion

    ● Equipped with the ORiN function, this product can
    use the RC8 provider, facilitating coordination with
    factory automation devices. Furthermore, all
    applications can be controlled with a robot
    language, reducing the number of man-hours
    needed for programming and maintenance.
    ● By operation using the same GUIs as the RC8,
    work efficiency is improved.

  • Compact design

    World's smallest* high-performance 8-axis controller
    This small and lightweight product has a high degree of design flexibility and is space-saving.
    ※As of December 2016, according to Denso Wave, in the case of robot controllers for 6-axis robots (3 kw class)

  • Meets global standards and has capability to adapt to standards

    ● Support for open networks [ORiN]
    ● Many certifications obtained
     ・ ISO 10218-1:2011/CE (standard, UL)
     ・ UL (UL)
     ・ PLe /SIL3 (standard, UL)
     ・ PLd/SIL2 (safety motion)
     ・ KCs (standard, safety motion)
    ● Support for global network standards
     ・ CC-Link
     ・ DeviceNet
     ・ Ethernet/IP
     ・ EtherCAT
