FANUC’s iPendant Solutions
Have you ever heard of teaching-playback robots? Put simply, they work exactly as they are taught- operators first instructs specific tasks and puts them in sequence which the robot then mimics in all its operations. This is exactly what the FANUC R-30i Series Robot does. And FANUC R-30iA Series Robots are operated by a FANUC A05B-2255-C101 teach pendant, which they also call an iPendant.
These FANUC teach pendants are being used in six-axis FANUC robots and are able to operate on all degrees of freedoms. They are used for a wide range of applications across different industries and are specifically best for high-precision applications like arc and laser welding.
And in case you’re curious, the LCD panel on those FANUC teach pendants / iPendants are of Hitachi make. As FANUC A05B-2255-C101 controllers were phased out, these Hitachi TX17D55VM2CAB LCD panels got more difficult to find over time. And similarly, their replacement touchscreens have become harder to source, too.
The good thing is it’s now made easier for you to maintain those FANUC A05B-2255-C101 controllers as Monitech and Take2 offer BOTH the Hitachi TX17D55VM2CAB replacement LCD panels and the replacement touchscreens.
