ABB IRB 2000
The IRB 2000 is a six-axis robots with a large work volume and is primarily intended for arc welding and glueing/sealing. The IRB 2000 is also suitable for applications such as assembly, water jet cutting, laser cutting, material handling and stud welding. The handling capacity is 10 kg and the very quick movements of the wrist axes are other important features for the intended applications.
The S3 control system makes use of established features like soft keys, joystick and the robot language ARLA for simple and fast programming. The IRb 2000 is in its basic form equipped with an absolute measuring servo system. Another important factor is the interface capacity. The S3 controller has the ability to perform a communication in several different ways. These are digital or analogue I/Os and the serial computer link.
