The IRC5C comes equipped with the majority of the functionality and benefits of its larger counterpart, with a compact footprint of 310h x 449w x 442d mm (12.2”h x 17.7”w x 17.4”d).

The new IRC5C also comes equipped with an enhanced operator panel, and improved cable connections for easier access and use. There are now, for example, external connectors for all signals, and a built-in, expandable 16-in, 16-out I/O system.

Despite its small size, the IRC5C retains the superior motion control of the IRC5, featuring TrueMove™ and QuickMove™, central to the well-known performance of ABB robots in terms of accuracy, speed, cycle-time, programmability and synchronization with external devices. The controller also makes it exceptionally easy to quickly integrate additional hardware and sensors, such as ABB’s Integrated Vision.
