The controller now supports the IRB 120, IRB 140, IRB 260, IRB 360 FlexPicker™, IRB 1410 and IRB 1600 robot families, offering the benefits of a greatly reduced controller footprint and simplified commissioning to a wider range of applications. Fully compatible with the standard and panel mount IRC5 controllers, providing the same industry-leading functionality in a portable model.
