Automatic Reverse Exit

Auto Backward Exit (R861) enables a robot to properly go backward (bwd) along the recorded path to return to the program's starting point. The robot can begin recording its path at a certain point in the program.

Fundamental Process Axes

Using group inputs or two unique teaching pendant instructions, Basic Process Axes let you set up and control a servo motor or motors independently of any motion group. This option is advised for spinning spindles, conveyors, etc.

using a servo motor as an auxiliary The axis of a process motor can only be controlled in terms of speed; it cannot be directly controlled in terms of position, and it is not a member of any motion group.

Simple remote TCP

RTCP frame, RTCP jogging, and RTCP motion are all part of the Basic Remote TCP (RTCP) option. For situations where the robot directs the positioning of a workpiece around a stationary tool in the workcell, RTCP is advised. Before using the RTCP option to jog the robot or add RTCP motion to a robot program, the RTCP frame must first be established.

Collision Guard Collision Guard provides a highly sensitive method to identify when the robot has collided with an object and then stops the robot immediately, reducing the risk of damage to the end-of-arm tooling and robot. Constant Deposition Constant deposition is a control technique to maintain the wire deposition rate constant during welding. It matches the filler wire feed rate for the robot.

The application will run at 100% override while maintaining a modest speed override.

For particular welding applications, Custom Weave enables you to design a unique weave pattern.

Safe I/O Connect for DCS
Safety inputs and outputs are read and set using DCS Safe I/O Connect.

Drive Sync for Two Drives

Two motors (a master and a slave) may operate in synchronization thanks to the Dual Drive Motor Axis function. The dual drive feature's primary purpose is to make up for the synchronous inaccuracy between the master and slave axes.

I/O interchange with other devices that implement the EtherNet Global Data (EGD) protocol, such as robots and the GE Fanuc 90/30 PLC, is made possible via EGD. EGD is built on a client-server architecture and utilizes UDP/IP. Up to 256 bytes of I/O can be exchanged via EGD.

Superior Mirror Image

With the Enhanced Mirror Image option, you may mirror-image the original programmed points in a complete teach pendant program or a specific section of a teach pendant program.

Port for Enhanced Vision

A limited-function Ethernet port that enables FTP (file transfer), user socket messaging, and HTTP (web) capabilities is offered via the Enhanced Vision Ethernet Port.

Code output for errors

You can communicate controller error codes as numeric values to another device (such as a PLC) using the error code output option.

Long-Axis Control

It is possible to connect a FANUC servo motor to the robot motion group using the Extended Axis Control option. Up to nine axes can be configured in the robot motion group (robot axes included). Servo grippers at the robot's wrist, various positioning and rotating devices, and driving a robot on a robot transfer unit (RTU) are all common uses for these FANUC motors.

EVI, or External Vision Interface

Even though FANUC iRVision is a very powerful, fully integrated 2D/3D machine vision system, the company wants its clients to be able to benefit from any technology that raises the value of a FANUC robotic system. As a result, FANUC acknowledges that machine vision technology is continuously advancing. A FANUC robot controller has the possibility to simply connect to any machine vision system (MVS) through Ethernet socket messages by using the External Vision Interface (EVI). FANUC EVI offers common KAREL macros.

Reporting Faults and Incidents

The error reporting log is shown via the Fault and Incident Reporting option. By looking at a bar graph that displays the top five defects by incidence, longest time, and total time, problem areas may be found. The graph simply highlights errors that happen.

Function for Flexible Pressure Control

With the Flexible Pressure Control option, customers may conduct customized pressing sequences with their servo-driven linear actuators by adding capabilities to FANUC's existing robust servo gun control software. The ability to effortlessly switch between force and position control modes, plot and analyze torque versus position curves, and construct a unique TP programming instruction that controls the whole pressing sequence are just a few of the newly added features.

IIC (Intelligent Interference Check) for Arc (R872) is a choice that has been improved from Intelligent Interference Check (R759) in order to meet the demands of applications for arc welding.

Frame for iRCalibration

A calibration feature called iRCalibration Frame Shift, formerly known as CellCal, corrects for frame changes by setting up a MASTER frame that executes a frame search instruction pendant program. Following a frame change, the frame search teach pendant program is performed once more by iRCalibration Frame Shift, which then calculates the new frame offset.

iRCalibration Master Vision Axis

The mastering state may be lost during maintenance, such as after motor replacement; however, iRCalibration Vision Axis Mastering restores it. To align the target markers on the robot, it employs vision.

Recovery Vision Master Calibration

By automatically measuring the target with the camera before and after a motor or reducer repair, iRCalibration Vision Master Recovery is able to recover mastering data.

Vision Mastering by iRCalibration

By automatically measuring a fixed target while altering the robot's posture (using a camera connected to the tool tip of a robot), iRCalibration Vision Mastering increases robot accuracy. Axes J2 through J5 master data and axis spring constants are adjusted. Only when the optional gravity compensation function is activated may the spring constants be changed.

iRCalibration MultiCalumetric Vision Calibration iRVision hardware is used by Vision Multi Calibration to identify coordinate frames between various robot arms. The connection between two robots, or a robot and a positioner, is defined by Vision Multi-Cal.
