PLC-Integrated Robot Control

Robot programming with the team you already have – using the language they already know.

Yaskawa Motoman’s MLX Unified Controls™ enable PLC programmers to work seamlessly within the Rockwell Automation integrated architecture and RSLogix™ 5000 to program and control industrial robots. This adds more flexibility and simplicity to robotic packaging, palletizing and handling applications, enabling you to:

  • Control and troubleshoot robots through ControlLogix® and CompactLogix™ platforms
  • Easily integrate peripherals such as vision systems to multiply the number of tasks you can accomplish with a single robot
  • Program multiple robots through a single software and HMI

It’s time to increase
