For an even wider range of manufacturing applications, ABB has expanded its OmniCore robot controller family with two new controllers: E10 and V250XT. The new controllers offer faster, scalable and more energy-efficient manufacturing along with enhanced flexibility, improved productivity and the ability to respond to changing market demands, the company says. Available for a range of robots across ABB’s portfolio, the E10 and V250XT controllers offer best-in-class motion control, as well as 20% energy savings and future-proofing through built-in digital connectivity. They also are equipped with more than 1,000 additional hardware and software functions encompassing such areas as programming, offline commissioning and simulation, maintenance, vision and safety. They also feature built-in connectivity to ABB Ability Connected Services cloud-based service suite for robots, offering new opportunities for improving performance through enhanced predictive maintenance and lifecycle management. Featuring a slimline 19-inch rack-mount design, the E10 is ideal for confined space and high-density production lines where space saving is a key requirement. It is designed to power ABB’s SCARA robots and articulated robots with payloads as much as 11 kg such as the IRB 920T and IRB 1300. Designed to power articulated robots with a payload as much as 300 kg such as IRB 6700, the OmniCore V250XT controller offers a versatile and powerful solution for use in general industrial applications.
