EtherNet/IP Simplifies Robot Integration

A new EtherNet/IP option for the vendor’s RC7 robot controller allows a single cable to connect the robot controller with a programmable logic controller (PLC), which simplifies integration and reduces the cost of robot set-up and hardware.

The EtherNet/IP cable quickly and easily plugs into a dedicated port on both the robot controller and PLC, eliminating the need to hand-wire and route parallel I/O terminals, which can amount to dozens or even hundreds for a single robot. “Especially when multiple robots are involved, EtherNet/IP can drastically cut set-up time and hardware costs. Having only one cable per robot also makes integration easier,” said Peter Cavallo, robotics sales manager at the vendor.
