Comprehensive automation, drive and control solutions from a single source will determine Yaskawa’s presence in Hall 7 (Stand 7-340) at SPS 2022 (November 8-10, 2022, Nuremberg Exhibition Center): from the process level to the interfaces and controls to the application -Specific drive technology and robot-based applications. Under the motto «Connectivity Experience», the completely new i³ CONTROL automation platform is also in the spotlight.
What is special about the i³ CONTROL system, which was presented as a concept for the first time in 2022: It forms a technically coordinated overall solution for industry-specific controls, from engineering software to controller hardware and chip technology. integrated. And in perspective beyond that. As a prelude to the ever-growing i³ CONTROL portfolio, Yaskawa is showing the first PLC on this new platform in Nuremberg: the iC9210-PN.
New converters and SLIO system The CR700 crane converter and
the LA500 elevator converter are also new.Ethernet-based multi-protocol card is now available for GA500 and GA700 series inverters, which allows four protocols on one card and thus makes commissioning more flexible.
The extensive and compact SLIO system (decentralized I/O system) will also be shown, which is characterized by numerous input, output, function, power, etc. modules. The combination of the SLIO modules with a CPU and corresponding I/O system forms one of the most efficient and modern control systems on the market. It combines maximum functionality with an ingenious mechanical concept in an extremely compact and maintenance-friendly design.
With the new «ecosSystem» from the cobot portfolio, which offers a variety of grippers, peripheral devices and other accessories, entry into robot automation becomes smarter and easier.
Technically consistent general solutions
Last but not least, technically consistent complete solutions from a single source will once again be a theme at the booth: Yaskawa will use a current ‘Singular Control’ demo cell with handling robots and delta kinematics to show once again how machine builders and users can implement robots into existing architectures without the need for a programming device (teaching box) or a proprietary robot programming language. The motion sequence of the individual axes is calculated in the firmware of the controller. The programmer can thus fully concentrate on the application without having to worry about the complex underlying technology.
