Kawasaki’s AD-series Robot Controller is a full 32-bit, language based controller which is common to the
entire line of Kawasaki Robot models. A unique, standard feature of the AD-Controller is it’s flexibility to
accept block-step type or language type programming instructions. Operators, programmars, and
maintenance personnel can easily interact with the Kawasaki AD-Controller without adding any option-al
equipment or special software.
The all digital servo system provides smooth motion control and allows convenient built-in interface to
peripheral devices such as vision and PLC equipment.
Among the significant user benefits of the AD-Controller are:
• Easy to use operator interface is common to all
Kawasaki robots, allows simple block/step type or
more sophisticated language based programming,
and minimizes training requirements. All digital
Servo System with Absolute Positioning to optimize
motion performance, minimize cycle times, and
eliminate downtime associated with intermittent
power loss.
• The ‘AS’ Language is powerful, yet familiar to
industrial users, and includes high level functions
such as frame shifting, on-line program editing,
multi-task program execution during robot
operation, and on-line path parameter changes.
• Proven reliability through years of field-tested
mechanical and electrical components, means high
MTBF rates and maximum uptime.
• Common mechanical & electrical parts reduces
spare parts and simplifies maintenance. Safety
features including E-stop buttons on the operator
panel and the teach pendant, automatic speed
limitation in teach mode, and brakes on all axes
• All software is completely menu-driven, and
displayed on the controller plasma display, or the
teach pendant display screen.
• Troubleshooting is made easy through standard online error-logging, operation-logging, and extensive
diagnostic capabilities.
The powerful Kawasaki AS Language is a derivative of a language already familiar to many machine tool and robot programmers. It
is an interpreter type language which eliminates the need for program compilation and therefore provides immediate feedback on
program-ming errors. Debugging is quick and simple, and can be done without taking the time to compile the program or run the
robot. Instructional commands include Arithmetic, Logicals, Conditional Signal & Position Control, and Motion Status. For example,
Automatic Palletizing is possible without adding any specail software by teaching three initial points and defining stack prameters.
User frames can be easily shifted or rotated to accuratelyaccommodate changes in part location. In addition to the robot arm motion
control programming, AS provides Process Control Program (PCP), or PC for short, which canbe programmed and executed
simultaneously with the robotmotion programs. PC programming capa-bilities provide extreme versatility for programming and
controlling peripheral equipment. External devices can be controlled and operated independent and/or dependent of robot motion
program. PC program supports and executes all As instructions except the ones which cause robot arm motion.
