The system is tightly integrated with ABB’s IRC 5 Controller, providing “plug and play” simplicity that allows users to easily set-up and adapt the system to their applications. It can be programmed on a PC or tablet and features a Window 8 touch screen interface. The system includes remote service capabilities including a specially designed iPhone App.
