FANUC Introduces R-30iB Plus Robot Controller
FANUC will introduce its new R-30iB Plus robot controller at the
annual FANUC Open House event on April 10-13 at its headquarters in
The new R-30iB Plus controller features a new iPendant
with an enhanced screen resolution and processing capability. The user
interface, iHMI, has an icon-based screen which provides a
familiar and easy-to-use experience with intuitive guides for setup and
programming. It also includes tutorials from the main home page which
has a design common to FANUC CNCs, enabling easier use of robots. With
the help of the programming guide, even first-time robot users can
create a program for a simple handling task and execute it in just 30
minutes. Easier usage also facilitates system setup and maintenance to
For those customers more comfortable with the current interface, the new iPendant
can easily revert to the previous version.
Processing performance for both hardware and software has been improved
in the R-30iB Plus, and the signal processing cycle has been
shortened. Compared to past controllers, signal output timing has been
enhanced, expanding possible applications to systems which require a
high level of positioning precision, such as laser applications.
The vision function of R-30iB Plus has a new camera interface
which increases four times the speed for transmitting images from the
camera, together with a simplified cable configuration. With
improvements in the user interface, the setup of the vision system can
be handled much more efficiently.
Overall, R-30iB Plus contributes to the easier use of robots and
automation in the manufacturing industry.
