The robot features a new curved upper arm that enhances its reach and allows a wider range of applications. This double yoke design also offers additional strength if the robot crashes due to a programming error. Thru-arm cable routing provides longer cable life and reduces the risks of snagging or interference. A large 50 mm thru-hole in the upper arm provides ample space to minimize wear and maximize cable life. Because the end effector cabling is frequently the highest maintenance item on a robot, this can increase the reliability of installations. This model has a 1440 mm (56.7 inch) reach and a large work envelope that extends behind the robot, permitting space for robot tool storage or maintenance. it features an increased 12 kg (26.5 lb) payload, and higher moment and inertia ratings over previous "payload class" models, enabling it to carry larger and heavier payloads. It has brakes on all axes and can be floor- or wall-mounted for layout flexibility. A small interference radius allows the robot to be placed close to other equipment, decreasing floor space requirements. A mounting surface is provided on the back of the upper arm for junction boxes or pneumatics; mounting in this area provides a lower profile to the robot and avoids interferences within the cell.
