F Controller

F60

AN EVOLUTION OF ENGINEERING EXCELLENCE

Kawasaki has incorporated its 50 years of experience as a robot industry leader into the development of the most technically advanced controller available. The F Controller combines high performance, unprecedented reliability, a host of integrated features and simple operation all in a compact design.

Features

INDUSTRY'S MOST COMPACT, LIGHTEST DESIGN
Component integration and size and weight reductions, as well as component layout optimization, have resulted in an approximate 77% reduction in size and 72% reduction in weight for a much more compact overall design. The industry's smallest F60 controller can be installed in a 19-inch rack. For further space saving options, an upright-position or stacked installation is possible without impeding performance. Furthermore, the indusry's lightest 8.3 kg weight makes it easier for carrying by hands.
(The above figures are comparisons between the new F60 and the previous E7X series.)
ENERGY SAVINGS
The F60 controller achieves a 10% reduction in energy consumption (*1) compared to Kawasaki's previous model, and it contributes toward greater overall energy savings and lower CO2 emissions. It reuses regenerative energy of its own to cut down energy loss. In addition, redesigning of the components and control functions made it possible to reduce energy consumption by the control circuit.

UNIVERSAL SUPPORT
Formerly, there were different controller specifications to support the respective standards of Japan/Asia, Europe, and the U.S. Now, functional safety technology has been employed to adopt a common safety circuit. The new controllers have common global specifications that support the standards of every country.
EXCELLENT EXTENSIBILITY
Two external axes can be added to the F60 controller for a total of eight controlled axes. Numerous communication fieldbuses are available for controlling peripheral devices. The Kawasaki K-Logic sequencer software can be combined with user customized interface panels on the teach pendant. The F60 controller also supports the following functions: • Optional Bluetooth to connect to the controller • Max. four 32 I/O’s as a remote I/O ・ The optional Bluetooth interface enables connection using tablets without the need for additional settings/customization
It is possible to include external motor control amplifiers for up to two axes and Cubic-S safety monitoring function (*2) inside the compact cabinet
(*2) : The cabinet will be partially expanded for Cubic-S.
