Servo robot systems LabVolt Series

Servo robot systems LabVolt Series

An introduction to industrial servo robots

The servo robot system is a ­complete training program for the programming and operation of ­industrial ­robots, through which students learn to create automated work cells ­ideal for flexible manufacturing systems and computer-integrated ­manufacturing.

Practical articulated arm

The servo robot is driven by ­servo motors, equipped with optical ­encoders to provide feedback to the controller, and has five ­axes of ­rotation plus a gripper. The ­servo robot has five axes of rotation plus a gripper. All joints can be used ­simultaneously to perform a ­sequence of moves. The servo ­robot can be ­operated in the articular mode, which allows each articulation to be controlled and moved ­independently, or it can be operated in the Cartesian mode, in which the gripper moves linearly, parallel to a specified axis.

Robot controller module

The robot controller module is provided with TTL inputs for the monitoring of input devices, TTL outputs to communicate with other robot units or control external accessories, relay outputs for the control of external accessories, and output ports for the control of external devices.

The module is also equipped with CNC ports, which enable communication with CNC machines. It ­also ­houses a USB port for program ­storage. The hand-held terminal connects to the controller via a ­serial communication port. It is used for programming points, saving programs, and general operation of the servo robot system.

Optional work surface

The servo robot system is available with or without a work surface. The two optional grid sheets are provided for the positioning of the servo robot when perforated work surfaces are not available. The servo robot and optional devices are equipped with location pins that insert into the perforations of the metallic work surfaces. This mechanism ensures the accurate positioning of the equipment when repeating programs.

Control and simulation software

The RoboCIM 5250 software can be used in place of the hand-held ­terminal. The program controls or simulates the motion of the ­servo ­robot. The convenient 3D virtual ­environment enables users to create simple or complex tasks.
