TF5120 | TC3 Robotics mxAutomation

TC3 Robotics mxAutomation allows direct communication between the PLC and the KUKA KR C4 robot control via a common interface. The robot movements can be programmed directly in the PLC, and the actual values of the robot can be synchronised in real time. TC3 Robotics mxAutomation combines PLC control and robot on a single platform and enables programming from an existing system without knowledge of a specific robot programming language.

Communication takes place via EtherCAT, with the TwinCAT EtherCAT master and the KR C4 controller from KUKA exchanging data via the EL6692 or EL6695 EtherCAT bridge terminals. In doing so, drive commands are transmitted from the controller to the robot and actual values from the robot to the controller. Commands can be transmitted very quickly from the PLC to the robot thanks to this efficient, high-performance communication. In addition, the PLC programmer has access to the robot position data at all times in real-time.
