The new R-30iB Plus robot controller was developed to make automation more user-friendly through improved user interfaces.
The main features of the new R-30iB Plus controller include:

  • Easier to use iPendant with improved screen resolution and processing power
  • Improved processing performance of hardware and software
  • The iHMI has an icon based user interface for more intuitive navigation through setup and programming (tutorials are also available)
  • Signal processing cycle is shorter and signal output timing has been improved

These controllers, while becoming more powerful, are also becoming smaller to take up less floor space. FANUC has 4 main cabinet types for the controllers.

The R-30iB Plus cabinet types available

  • A-Cabinet – FANUC’s standard cabinet that is both stackable and compact
  • B-Cabinet – Same as the A-Cabinet but has space for extra amplifiers or I/O modules
  • Mate Cabinet – This stackable cabinet is for use with LRMate and other smaller robots
  • Open Air Cabinet – Also for smaller robots and can be installed in dirty environments

Overall, R-30iB Plus contributes to the easier use of robots and automation in the manufacturing industry. ~ FANUC America Press Release

Vision Setup

Integrating vision into a robotic system opens up your automation possibilities. So, for integrators, having more power for vision, makes designing more demanding systems a possibility. The new R-30iB Plus can transmit images 4 times faster than before. Also, setup of the vision system can be handled much more efficiently with the new interface.

The new R-30iB Plus makes adding a robot system to your facility a simpler process. Once the system is integrated, the operators will have a more user friendly interface with intuitive navigation. This helps to increase the overall system efficiency. If you would like to learn more about this new FANUC controller, contact Motion Controls Robotics.
