New RC8A Robot Controller Features Safety Motion Function

Press release date: Nov 29, 2017

Facilitates Human-Robot Collaboration

Dear Industry Professional,

Our latest RC8A robot controller adds a new DENSO Safety Motion function to the list of advanced advanced-performance features already available with the previous RC8 model.

Safety Motion uses optical sensors or other sensing devices to allow creation of virtual safety zones around the robot, making human-robot collaboration easier.

The sensors trigger a reduction in the speed of the robot to safe levels depending on the distance of the operator.

Other outstanding advantages and benefits of the RC8A controller include:

  • World's smallest industrial robot controller in its class
  • Footprint of only 12.5" x 14" saves valuable factory floor space and makes integration easier
  • Improved, easier-to-use GUI reduces robot setup time
  • Communicates with over 100 different types of devices
  • ISO and UL safety compliance allows global deployment
