ABB announces SafeMove2 robot monitoring software

June 28, 2016 – ABB Robotics announced the launch of SafeMove2, the latest generation of its safety certified robot monitoring software. SafeMove2 is designed to deliver greater flexibility, space savings and commissioning tools for greater productivity at a lower total investment cost. This, combined with safety, enables closer collaboration between robots and factory workers.

Like the original SafeMove, first introduced in 2008, SafeMove2 includes a host of safety functions, including safe speed limits, safe standstill monitoring, safe axis ranges and position and orientation supervision.  The new generation functionality encourages the development of innovative robot applications by integrating safety features directly into the robot controller.

SafeMove2 allows for the creation of efficient and flexible production scenarios, and provides tools that speed the commissioning workflow for faster setup and validation. It also integrates safety fieldbus connectivity into ABB’s IRC5 robot controller family as well as the IRC5 Single, Compact and Paint controllers.
