R1C is the new industrial industrial 19″ rack control unit, designed for simplified,  efficient and multi-functional management of the smallest Comau Robots.

 R1C Control Unit:

  • It has been designed and manufactured in order to allow the installation inside in a standard rack cabinet.
  • Running with 230 Vac voltage
  • It controls up to 6 axes, equipped with brushless synchronous motors and High  resolution Encoder
  • Interfaced with the most common Field Bus and communication protocols. It can become an Ethernet network node to facilitate remote updates and diagnostics.
  • Programmable  via software and by Comau Teach Pendant
