The Robotics market has been conspicuous for many years due to solid growth and positive future prospects. Worldwide, industrial robots are an integral part of modern production halls. They provide the basis for precision, constant quality and short processing times. At the same time, electronics and mechanics have to interact securely. Products intended to be used in the robotics market have to meet specific demands and the required technical solutions are often quite challenging.
Sollae Systems’ RS232 to Ethernet device server can be applied to industrial robots in factory automation system. Industrial robots are programmed to faithfully carry out specific operating sequences. Some of them are serially connected with a controller via RS232 and Sollae Systems’ RS232 to Ethernet device server provides an access to the industrial robots to download job program and enable real-time monitoring over the network. It consequently enables integrated management system by automatically receiving serial data from several robots at the same time. Furthermore, network capabilities allow the robots to be more flexible and improve operational efficiency while reducing costs for malfunctions.
