Collaborative Robot Controller Kawasaki Cubic-S and a Safety Scanner

Published October 17, 2020 28 Views

Rumble We have been deploying these safety scanners for years on our robots. We had to write software in the Autostart.PC file to make them work right but now Kawasaki has created a small safety controller that simplifies all the work we formerly had to do. The controller attaches to the robot directly and the software adds menus in the teach pendant that are more powerful than our old method of setting up listening posts in the software for safety devices. If you are an automation guy, you probably know what I am talking about. It is ..complicated to describe. This video is pretty much all there is for the consumer to understand when purchasing this device for a robot. If used correctly, you do not have to install fencing and workflow is not interrupted by procedural "button pushes" and the time-consuming "lockout/tagout". The devices are approved as you can see in this video and others I have posted on my website.
