OmniCore™ Controllers

A new era of flexible and digital robot control

A new era is here
ABB’s OmniCore robot controller family is the first significant step towards preparing customers for a new era in manufacturing. ABB’s robot controller family offers broadest motion control options and more tailored solutions for the connected Factory of the Future. To power the diverse manufacturing needs of the factory of the future, manufacturers need a controller that delivers unsurpassed flexibility, connectivity, and performance. Every controller in this product family is designed to deliver these capabilities and meet the diverse needs robot users today expect.

The best made even better
OmniCore C30 builds on our heritage of best-in-class motion control and path accuracy, but in a 50% smaller footprint for maximum installation flexibility and floor space utilization. The new OmniCore C90XT extends the comprehensive OmniCore controller family bringing all the benefits of their best-in-class motion control and path accuracy to harsh environments. The C90XT is a rugged yet compact controller 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. C90XT is the smallest high protection class robot controller in the industry, all wrapped in a small powerful package for maximum flexibility.

The industry’s most versatile and powerful controller
In addition to increasing mounting flexibility, ABB’s OmniCore controller also increases flexibility to incorporate the latest digital technologies. The controller is versatile and expandable, and can be equipped with the industry’s most versatile range of additional offerings, such as fieldbus protocols, vision solutions, and force control.

The most intuitive RobotWare 7 and FlexPendant
The controller comes with ABB’s powerful yet intuitive operating system, RobotWare 7. It incorporates new features and functions making the robots more capable than ever and it’s accessed through a newly designed, powerful and intuitive new FlexPendant.
