market," said Denny.

With the Diagnostic Resource Center - i Pendant edition (iDRC) controller option, the
user can have instant access to more advanced diagnostic information including: stepby-
step diagnostic flow charts, schematics, component pictures, and email enhanced
capabilities, which allows the robot to automatically send emails regarding items such
as errors or production status. In addition to the iDRC, other controller options including cycle time and fault analysis functions can all significantly improve system uptime and productivity.
