August 13, 2014 - Yaskawa Motoman releases MH50 II-Series Robots caan be used for a variety of applications, including coating, dispensing, machine and press tending, material cutting and handling. The long reach of the MH50 II model and the extended reaches of the MH50 II-35 and MH50 II-20 make these robots superior for processing large parts. In many cell layouts, the extended reach models can eliminate the need for an external track, decreasing system cost and simplifying programming. Internally routed cables and hoses maximize system reliability, minimize interference and facilitate programming. Wide work envelopes with small interference zones allow the MH50 II-series robots to be placed in close proximity to workpieces and equipment, reducing floorspace requirements. The robots have brakes on all axes and can be floor-, wall- or ceiling-mounted for layout flexibility. These models use the dynamic DX200 controller that includes patented multiple robot control technology to easily handle multiple tasks and control up to eight robots (72 axes), I/O devices and communication protocols. Featuring a robust PC architecture with unmatched memory capacity, the DX200 uses a Windows CE programming pendant with color touch screen. The energy-saving DX200 controller features faster processing speeds for smoother interpolation, advanced robot arm motion, built-in collision avoidance, quicker I/O response and accelerated Ethernet communication. Its extensive I/O suite includes integral PLC and HMI pendant displays, 4,096 I/O and a graphical ladder editor that can provide system level control. The DX200 supports all major fieldbus networks. It is compliant to ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012 and other relevant ISO and CSA safety standards.
