Improved Robot Controller with iPendant

FANUC introduced its new R-30iB Plus robot controller, which features a new iPendant with an enhanced screen resolution and processing capability. The user interface, iHMI, has an icon-based screen that provides experience with intuitive guides for set up and programming. It also includes tutorials from the main home page which has a design common to FANUC CNCs, enabling easier use of robots. Easier usage also facilitates system set up and maintenance to improve efficiency.

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 that require a high level of positioning precision, such as laser applications," said a company spokesperson.

The vision function of R-30iB Plus has a new camera interface designed to increase four times the speed for transmitting images from the camera, together with a simplified cable configuration. "With improvements in the user interface, the set up of the vision system can be handled much more efficiently," said the spokesperson.
