The YASKAWA Smart Pendant is an innovative teach pendant with a large 10-inch touch screen and offers a newly thought-out operator control concept.

The tablet-based graphical user interface (GUI) enables the guided entry of commands, parameters, functions and program sequences. The central interface comprises the main and navigation menus, where entries are listed and switched in a specific, easily comprehensible order.

The Smart Pendant has a revolutionary patented coordinate system – the “Smart Frame” – that also supports rotation and inclination of the Smart Pendant. This means that the operator no longer has to convert motions or break them down into a coordinate space (X,Y,Z) when teaching them, and his line of vision relative to the robot is automatically taken into consideration by the system.

In the case of collaborative robots, the “Hand Guiding” function – guiding the robot manually to a desired position – is also supported.

The Smart Pendant is available for the following MOTOMAN robots with the YRC1000 and YRC1000micro controller generations:

  • MOTOMAN YRC1000: HC10, HC10DT, GP7 to GP600
  • MOTOMAN YRC1000micro: MotoMINI, HC10DT, GP7, GP8, GP12
