B&R supplies control technology to COMAU Robotics
The Turin-based Fiat subsidiary COMAU Robotics will be using exclusively B&R technology in the area of automation.

For its articulated arm robots, COMAU will be using series C5G of the modular servo drive system ACOPOSmulti. The latest industrial PC generation, the APC810 with Core 2 Duo technology, and the X20 system will be used to control the system. A POWERLINK interface will allow simple integration of the hardware components into COMAU's proven CNC logic.

"By implementing B&R's integrated automation solutions, we are laying the foundation for a technological partnership that will generate long-term competitive advantages," explains Maurizio Filoni, Chief Operating Officer of COMAU Robotics.

The key factors in the decision - in addition to B&R's innovative state-of-the-art products - were the benefits of the real-time Ethernet protocol POWERLINK and the integrated safety technology.
