DESCRIPTION

 

Rhino Robotics Ltd. Mark III Controller

THE CONTROLLER

The Mark III controller is a basic, 8 axis controller with the ability to interact with 8 TTL level input lines and to control 8 TTL level output lines. It also has the ability to control two auxiliary ports that provide 20 volts each at 1.5 amps. All input lines are pulled up to TTL high. Ground them for easy operation. No power is needed. Output lines provide TTL level signals at 100 milliamps. The auxiliary ports can be used to control two more motors or relays as needed by the experimenter. The Mark III controller integrates the power supplies, communication, microprocessor logic, teach pendant support, the input/output capability and a software language all in one unit. The unit is ready to be connected to and used with the Rhino XR-3 series or SCARA robot. The ease of use of an integrated system makes it easier for the students to build effective CIM and FMS workcells.
