Robot and Controller for Harsh Environments

Feb. 3, 2020
ABB’s IRB 1100 robot, powered by the new OmniCore C90XT controller, is IP67-rated.

For protection against water and dust, the entire body of the new model has an IP67 rating, with all electrical components sealed against contaminants. This makes it resistant to water and provides the robot with complete protection from dust ingress. For manufacturers, the IP67 protection rating will enable the robot to be used in applications generating substantial dust, water and debris including 3C polishing, wet grinding, buffing and deburring. The unit is the company’s most compact and fastest robot, and available in two variants—one with a 4 kg payload with 475 mm reach and the second with a 580 mm reach. The C90XT controller is rugged yet compact, with full IP54-rated protection enabling it to be installed in close proximity to dirty, wet, and dusty processes. XT stands for ‘Extra Tough.’ The controller also offers extra internal space to support process-related equipment for communication, conveyor tracking and external axis, while its lean format enables it to be installed in tight spaces.
