IAI Expand Range of Cost-Effective SCARA Robots

We are pleased to announce that IAI have expanded their range of IXP Series of SCARA Robots, which utilise Pulse Motor technology & battery-less absolute encoders, making them fantastic value for money. Prices start from just £5,500 and increase to £8,500 for the larger versions - including MSEL controller, cables, tool mounting flange or gripper option.

IAI IXP SCARA Robots are on page 40 & 41 in our 2016/17 Product Catalogue

In fact, because IAI's new IXP Series Robots utilise pulse motors (or stepper motors), they actually cost around half the price of a conventional, servo motor model. The IXP achieves a payload equivalent to that of a conventional model by adopting high-output drivers and all IXP models include battery-less absolute encoders as standard. Since battery replacement is no longer necessary, they also require less maintenance.

Affordable, and lightweight

Not only do IXP SCARA robots offer an affordable SCARA solution for 1 - 3Kg or 2 - 6Kg loads (depending on model), they also weigh approximately 30% less than standard models, making it easier to assemble these lightweight robots into your equipment.

Larger range for more applications

The extended range is now available, providing a vertical stroke of up to 200mm and a choice of 180mm, 250mm, 350mm, 450mm, 550mm or 650mm arm lengths.

Added 3-axis and 4-axis Gripper Specification

The 3-axis versions have no rotational axis which provides a larger allowable inertial load moment. They can be combined with a dedicated gripper to easily create a transfer robot. The four axes versions have three SCARA robot axes and one gripper axis.


IXP SCARA Robots utilise the MSEL Program Controller with High-output Driver (PowerCON)

The MSEL controller has a much greater storage capacity to accommodate up to 255 programs (increased from 128) and 30,000 positions (up from 20,000). It also features;

Smaller size

At just 130mm x 195mm (width x height), the MSEL is significantly smaller than a conventional controller and saves space in your control panel. The MSEL can be installed with screws or specified as DIN rail mounting.

Safety category compliant

By building an appropriate external circuit, the MSEL meets the safety circuit requirements of any Safety Categories from 1 to 3.

Supports Diverse I/O Interfaces

As standard, the IXP Series robots have 16 inputs and 16 outputs with one expansion I/O slot. This gives the option of adding an additional 16 inputs and 16 outputs or a field network card (CC-Link, DeviceNet, PROFIBUS-DP or EtherNet/IP).
