Due to its compact design, the new DXM100 controller easily fits underneath conveyors or the controller cabinets can be stacked to provide floorspace savings in material handling/palletizing applications. The high-performance DXM100 controller delivers all of the same features of the full-sized DX100 controller in a much smaller “mid-size” cabinet. It is available with the compact MH5 and MH5L robot models, as well as the high-speed MPK2 and MPK4 picking robots.
The DXM100 provides patented multiple robot control capability (up to EIGHT robots with one pendant, open communication and integrated cell control). It can accommodate two optional external axis servo amplifiers for seventh and eighth axis control.By eliminating the need for a separate PLC, PC-based human machine interface (HMI) and separate password protection hardware, and by providing a standard Ethernet port and an onboard graphical ladder editor, the DXM100 delivers significant savings at the system level, while also decreasing system complexity and improving overall system reliability.
