OmniCore-family controllers reportedly provide flexibility when integrating robots into the digital-factory ecosystem, whether manufacturers need standardized motion control or more tailored solutions. These controllers offer 50-percent-smaller footprints than previous models, delivering maximized installation flexibility and floor-space utilization. This allows robotic solutions to be flexibly tailored to a variety of existing and new production lines.

The company’s ABB Ability digital offering and Connected Services are built in, as is SafeMove2 safety software. OmniCore controllers seamlessly connect with a variety of fieldbuses, advanced vision systems and force control as part of a greater digital ecosystem, claim ABB officials.
