Introduction

Intel-Powered, Functional Safety (FuSa)–Capable IPCs Accelerate Robot Deployments

NexCOBOT delivers robot safety controller boards enabled by the Enhanced for IoT Intel Atom® x6427FE processor. The SCB 100 is an industrial PC (IPC) board enabled with key FuSa features in the Intel Atom® x6427FE processor. With this solution, robot builders and their customers receive the support and documentation to accelerate their system-level certification process for Cat 3 PLd.

Open and Modularized Robotic Control

NexCOBOT Robot Control System (RCS) ensures open and modularized robotic automation. It adapts NexCOBOT intelligent PC-based robotic controller and integrates with NexCOBOT’s robotic control software, NexGRC or NexARC. RCS is designed for small payload robots such as articulated robots (6-axis & 7-axis), SCARA robots, and Delta robots.

Robotic Control Solution

The industrial robot controller software (NexGRC) of NexCOBOT is a pure software based on the PC-Based controller architecture, which can control the servo drive through an industrial fieldbus such as EtherCAT. NexGRC runs on a real-time operating system (RTOS), which can perform real-time calculations and send motion control commands to the servo driver. NexGRC also provides configuration software such as NexMotion Studio and teach pendant user interfaces such as TPUI and User-developed libraries such as NexGRC Windows API.

Application Stories

Intelligent Logistics System

The system can collect and transmit real-time data of each equipment to the cloud dashboard, so that the on-site students can learn about the analysis and management of a digital factory by remotely logging into the industrial cloud platform.

Automatic Screw Fastening Machine

In traditional production lines, manufacturers use manual tools or semi-automated screwdrivers in screw assembly process. Problems such as screw slippage, screw skewing, substandard torque and screw floating are hard to avoid. In order to improve production quality and achieve high precision and efficiency, the screw fastening process needs to be strictly monitored.
