Scalable Open-Architecture Robot Control
The RCP-DELTA control system is based on Aerotech’s A3200 Automation controller. The A3200’s networked, distributed architecture provides a scalable platform in which additional robots, I/O, and positioning devices can be easily integrated. Multiple programming interfaces provide deployment flexibility by allowing developers to work in the environment that matches their skill sets or application requirements. External sensors are supported with industry standard fieldbuses (EtherCAT, Modbus TCP, Ethernet/IP™ and others) or applications operating in the RCP-DELTA’s real-time enabled Windows® operating system.
Multiple Robot Configurations
Four models support payloads up to 3 kg with X/Y operating ranges of 500/800/1100/1300 mm with an optional continuous rotation about the Z axis (yaw). IP65 level protection is standard (sealed against dust and low-pressure water jets) and IP69K (sealed against dust and close-range high pressure and high temperature spray) is available for applications where periodic cleaning with high-pressure water and/or steam is required.
High-Speed Durable Design
Extensive use of carbon fiber and light-weight aluminum results in a robot that is capable of sustaining 200 pick-and-place operations per minute with peak acceleration on the order of 15g. Spring-loaded, flexible strut connections are designed to break away upon impact to limit energy transfer and are easily replaced when damaged.
With absolute encoders on each motor the robot never has to be referenced, even after a loss of power. The motors are also equipped with holding brakes to prevent movement of the tool when the robot is not enabled.
The RCP-DELTA supports all standard A3200 programming and control capabilities such as multi-block look-ahead, corner rounding, and command shaping. Additional Delta robot specific functions are included for common robotic operations such as target queues, tracking moving material, and teaching tool/part locations.
