OmniCore™ Controllers

A new era of flexible and digital robot control

A new era is here
ABB’s new OmniCoreTM 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
The first variant of controller family 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. With the class-leading superior precision, cycle times and speed that ABB is renowned for our new robot controllers can tackle the toughest challenges. The OmniCore small robot controller gives our robots the ability to perform their tasks in a highly efficient manner.

Ensures convenient connectivity and digitalization
The ABB Ability™ digital platform and ABB Ability Connected Services are built into all our new controller, as is ABB’s SafeMove2 safety software solution. This means the new controllers can help make any connected industrial robot a collaborative robot. 

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.
