DENSO : Robot controller with EtherNet/IP
DENSO’s EtherNet/IP option for its RC7 robot controller allows a single cable to connect the robot controller with a programmable logic controller (PLC), simplifying integration and reducing the cost of robot setup and hardware.
The EtherNet/IP cable plugs into a dedicated port on both the robot controller and PLC, eliminating the need to hand-wire and route parallel I/O terminals. When multiple robots are involved, EtherNet/IP can drastically cut setup time and hardware costs. Having only one cable per robot also makes integration easier.
