The MLX300 is Yaskawa’s third-generation solution for environments requiring robots to integrate with programmable logic controllers (PLCs). MLX300 is a software solution based on our advanced robot controllers, where all programming, configuration, maintenance and troubleshooting are done through  the PLC interface via additional instructions (AOI). 

Properties and features

The MLX300 is able to function in environments requiring robot integration with programmable logic controllers (PLCs). These programmable industrial robots are mainly used to automate machine controls. They also control industrial robots. The MLX300 allows for programming, configuring, maintaining and troubleshooting robots with distinct programming models, without the need to learn a separate robot programming language. The MLX300 is very versatile and powerful.
Up to four robots or positioners can be controlled by a single system. It is an ideal asset for industries working in material handling, palletizing and parts assembly.

 

Advantages of the MLX300

The many advantages of the MLX300 make it the easiest and most accessible way to develop, train and support your production staff. It features a wider range of supported robots than the MLX200, and an optional functional safety unit (FSU) not offered by previous MLX generations. No additional servomotor or panels are required for its use. 

Getting started

This tutorial video is a good starting point for users of the software, guiding you through the first steps of using and configuring MLX. Follow the instructions while using your nearby MLX controller.
The video can be consulted again in the future to fix initial configuration problems or for a refresher on common stumbling blocks.

 

With the rapid evolution of Industry 4.0 (https://resautomation.com/the-new-4-0-industrial-era/), it is essential for businesses to innovate and to incorporate automation into their manufacturing processes. Integrating smart digital technologies into industrial activities can add value to your human, material and financial resources. Process automation boosts productivity and efficiency, lowers costs, and can be integrated collaboratively with your workforce.
