Frequently asked Questions*.
(feel free to submit a question and I will post any reasonable question and answer them here.)
1. I can see that the Fanuc comes with 2 different size controllers. What is the difference between the two?
What is the Fanuc LR Mate 200iC controller rating?
The FANUC standard controller is not officially rated anything. It is close to NEMA 12 or IP54 and will look as such EXCEPT for where the cables enter through a foam gasket. That is a vulnerable point that could drop it to a IP20 rating. It is designed for an industrial environment, but should not be put it in an area with tons of liquids flying around.
When should the IP20 compact controller be used.
The compact IP20 controller is best suited for laboratory, research, and educational environments or where the controller is being placed within a NEMA enclosure.
What Teach pendant is offered with the IP20 compact controller
The compact IP20 controller can be supplied with either the Color iPendant or the basic FANUC Monochrome pendant.
