By upgrading to an IRC5 or IRC5P controller during remanufacturing of your robot property, you will benefit from the latest hardware and software functionalities, unlocking advanced services like ABB AbilityTM Connected Services.
In robot systems, even though robot arms may be able stay in operation for many hours, an old controller cannot always handle new challenging demands. Instead of investing in a new robot, the value of an older robot can be enhanced significantly simply by enabling it to work more freely and productively with a new controller.
In short, a comparatively low maintenance cost in controller replacement can be an alternative to a larger investment in a robot system, with the same end result.
Thanks to the flexible and compatible properties of the IRC5 controller, it allows you to minimize the number of different components in a robot system. Simply put, sticking to one controller type ensures less parts handling and improved flexibility to optimize your robot system.
