Smart Pendant Software Expands Ease of Use and Controller Performance

Featuring multiple improvements and optimization, Yaskawa's Smart Pendant software version 2.1 extends capability for the intuitive and easy-to-use Smart Pendant. Building on prior software updates, the efficient Smart Pendant v2.1 is suited for quick robotic implementation of basic assembly, injection molding, inspection, machine tending, material handling and pick & place tasks.

Enabling previously unsupported functions, software v2.1 provides a built-in Classic Interface view. Suited for more experienced robot operators, this option enables the end user to reset minor and major alarms or to edit Concurrent I/O with reduced programming downtime.

Expanding on the performance improvements and extension app capabilities introduced previously, Smart Pendant v2.1 capability further enhances configuration and programming of third-party devices, including Yaskawa's Smart Packager software development kit (SDK). This desktop tool enables third parties to combine multiple components into a single convenient file. Each file, known as a Yaskawa Installation Package (YIP), enables easier robot set-up by automating processes typically outlined in a manual.

Various advances, such as YRC1000 controller software updates, multitouch jogging, 3D viewer optimizations, basic concurrent job support, improved HC-series configuration and other INFORM usability improvements, are also included.

Smart Pendant is available for use with select Yaskawa Motoman YRC-controlled robots. Soft Pendant software-a digital version of the YRC1000 pendant that can run on a Windows operating system-is also included. Contact Yaskawa Motoman to update your Smart Pendant.
