Technical Feature

  • 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)

  • Excellent ease of operation

    More user-friendly menu structure and enhanced usability are achieved.
    Improved GUI and functions shorten time needed for robot introduction.

  • 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
     ・ PROFIBUS
     ・ DeviceNet
     ・ Ethernet/IP
     ・ PROFINET
     ・ EtherCAT

  • Great potential for expansion

    This product enables robots to connect with and control
    various devices, meeting diversified needs by
    customization.
    ● Since control programs can be written by accessing
    the provider from PacScript, robots can be controlled
    from the RC8 with a provider that is compatible with
    external devices.
    ● By developing a provider, connecting with and
    controlling various products are possible.
    * For details, including how to develop it, contact our
    sales representative.
    The control panel of the multi-functional teaching
    pendant can be customized easily from WINCAPS®III.
