The team at Univer­sal Robots has re­leased a new gen­er­a­tion of their col­lab­o­ra­tive robots. New fea­tures in­clude the ad­di­tion of dual switch­able safety modes, which mean the ro­bot can be slowed down when a per­son en­ters its op­er­at­ing area.

Ab­so­lute po­si­tional en­coders on all six joints mean there is no more time spent ini­tial­is­ing the ro­bot at startup. Ad­di­tional in­puts and out­puts built in to the con­trollers re­duce the re­quire­ment for in­stalling a PLC.

The firm has also added con­veyor track­ing as stan­dard with all new robots. Th­ese new fea­tures on the lat­est GEN III robots make it eas­ier than ever to in­te­grate a Univer­sal Ro­bot into pro­duc­tion.
