FANUC Robot Controller R-30iB Plus EF2
Mr. Yujiro Honda
FANUC's Latest Robot Controller - R-30iB Plus
FANUC's new R-30iB Plus Robot Controllers feature the new iPendant with enhanced screen resolution and processing capability. The new user interface, iHMI, can display guides for setup and programming, as well as tutorials from the main home page which has a design common to FANUC CNCs, enabling easier use of robots. Using 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 improves efficiency by facilitating system setup and maintenance.
For those who would like to use the traditional version of the iPendant interface, FANUC has made this available for use on the new iPendant as well.
FANUC's new R-30iB Plus includes improved processing performance for both hardware and software, and shortened signal processing cycle. Additionally, signal processing output timing has been improved versus previous controllers - This expands the possible applications in automation systems that require a high level of positioning precision, such as laser applications.
The vision function has a new camera interface which increases four times the speed for transmitting images from the camera, and a simplified cable configuration. With improvements in the user interface, setup of the vision system can be handled much more efficiently.
Overall, FANUC's new R-30iB Plus Controller contributes to the easier use of robots and automation in the manufacturing industry.
Improved processing performance
These enhanced robot controllers are destined to contribute to the easier use of robots and automation in the manufacturing industry. With a more flexible appearance, the user interface, iHMI, has received an enhanced screen resolution and processing capability. It can display guides for setup and programming, as well as tutorials from the main home page, which has a design common to FANUC CNCs, enabling easier use of robots. For users who feel more comfortable with the current interface, the new iPendant can easily be reverted to the previous version. Overall, the robot controllers lead to improved cycle times and an improvement in speed and accuracy.
By using the R-30iB Plus, you will benefit from:
· High speed CPU which enables higher performance
· Increased Memory (DRAM 1GB, FROM 256 MB)
· Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0 (iPendant)
· High speed/High resolution iPendant
Based on an improved motion performance, the new user interface (iHMI) allows the robot to be installed within 30 minutes using the initial setup guide. Feature tutorials can be accesses from the main home page, which has a common design to FANUC CNCs, enabling easier use of industrial robots. The signal output timing has been enhanced, expanding possible applications to systems, which require a high level of positioning precision, such as laser applications.
Improved Vision functions
The brand new camera package allows a 4 times faster image transmission (116 ms ex.) from the camera, and comes with a more simplified cable configuration. The iRVision user improvements further simplify the setup through guides and camera calibration.
