universalcontroller F0X

The F controllers are new generation of Kawasaki controllers designed for high performance and global use. We reduced controller size by 30% so it can be stored in a 19-inch rack.  In addition, the performance of the latest CPU has been greatly improved, and various options such as the built-in 2D vision are also available. Together with the GenII teach pendant, our F controllers put user-friendliness first.

Smallest and lightest in the industry

As an evolution of Kawasaki’s E controller, the F series builds on its predecessor – achieving a 30% reduction in both volume and mass. Despite its small size, this controller can be used for large robots with up to 700 kg payloads.

Energy savings

The F03 controller comes standard with a power regenerative function to conserve energy and reduce the user’s carbon footprint. The power regenerative function is available for the F02/F04 controllers as an option*1.
*1 This option needs space for 2 external axis amplifier units.

Universal support

F controllers’ universal specifications allow for use in countries all over the world with optional transformer unit.

High performance

Our F controllers are designed with improved CPU performance and enhanced I/F to suit a wide range of user needs.
