The heart of every robot is its controller – and KUKA robots are receiving an impressive update in this area: future-compatible hardware and smart software ensure extremely efficient performance and maximum cost-effectiveness in the new controller for KUKA industrial robots KR C5.
Compact, high quality and low energy requirements: with the new robot controller for KUKA industrial robots KR C5 and the corresponding KR C5 micro robot controller for small robots, KUKA is raising automated production to a new level. The controller slots seamlessly into existing IT and cloud environments and will gradually support all current applications – while offering considerably more possibilities and even better results. For example, the KR C5 requires less energy than its predecessor and is at the same time significantly more compact.
KUKA Controller KR C5: transforming mere data into valuable information
Thanks to the modular cabinet system, the robot controller for KUKA industrial robots KR C5 hardware is durable and future-proof, and can be expanded entirely as required. The highly integrated and compact control mod-ules are easy to operate and can be linked to various different software products and digital services. Another positive aspect: thanks to the new KUKA.DeviceConnector, the KUKA controller KR C5 can effortlessly provide cloud systems with data – with no need for additional hardware.
"Die vollständige Eigenentwicklung ermöglicht uns bei der KUKA Steuerung KR C5 unter anderem ein ganz neues Level an Integrationsdichte und Optimierungsmöglichkeiten. Der positive Effekt zeigt sich am deutlichsten in der massiven Verkleinerung der Steuerungen, aber auch beim geringeren Energieverbrauch und der weiter gestiegenen Qualität."
