Control Systems & Electrical Panels

The complexity of a robot system can be made easier for operators by incorporating a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) to communicate with the robot. Palladium Control Systems is also an Allen-Bradley (Rockwell Automation) Industrial Controls electrical panel shop and has numerous years of experience in designing hundreds of electrical control panels for the oil and gas industry. We recommend Rockwell Automation products because they easily integrate with FANUC robots. FANUC and Rockwell Automation announced an advanced global collaboration to provide customers a more seamless and integrated manufacturing solution.

All our control panels are designed, assembled, tested, and programmed in house.

Human Machine Interface (HMI) Touchscreen Design

Whether you have a FANUC robot already at your facility or your company is new to robots an HMI will make owning a FANUC robot easier. The HMI or touchscreen can be configured to suit the specific application. It will also make it easier for the operator to understand the status of the robot and to send commands. If the application calls for a vision system the vision runtime (the webpage that shows what the camera sees) can also be part of the touchscreen design. 

A touchscreen can be configured to:

  • Select programs with image based instructions taking out the guess work for operators 
  • Provide an interface to the robot to HOLD, STOP, RESET, START, and control the speed of the robot
  • Actuate end of arm tools
  • Show current status of the robot faults and alarms or other peripheral devices such as sensors and switches
  • View screens that show production counts and logs
  • Capture images and/or videos if your system has FANUC iRVision

Centralized Robot Control Station

Available for pre-order, the Centralized Robot Control Station combines all the controls necessary for a robot work cell into one centralized system to reduce the amount of cables. It can be ordered with Allen Bradley industrial controls or without any industrial controls.  

The standard system contains:

  • Open back enclosure with mounting plate sized to the robot controller
  • Consolet for push button and touchscreen interfacing
  • Enclosure for programmable logic controller (PLC) and accessories 
  • Enclosure for pneumatic controls (Not available with smaller operator station)
  • Optional enclosure for power and signal conditioning (Not available with smaller operator station)

The station can be customized to fit most any robot brand controller. Contact us for a quote. 

Currently available for:

  • FANUC R-30iB A-Cabinet Controller
  • FANUC R-30iB Mate Controller
