UR releases new iteration of its UR5 and UR10 robots.

Auto Control Systems continuing partnership with Universal Robots sees the release of two updated models from the Danish robotics company. The new iteration – CB3 – have received some substantial and major steps forward in their technology and safety.

The main points are as follows:

  • Appearance and main technical specifications for both UR5 and UR10 remain exactly the same.
  • New absolute encoders mean it is no longer necessary to move the robot to initialise at start up.
  • New adjustable safety system:
    • Certified by TÜV (Technical Inspection Association) to meet safe collaborative robot standards.
    • “Reduced mode” allows the robot to operate at reduced speeds/force limits when it is around humans.
    • 16 Additional IO channels can be used as general purpose IO or as special safety IO signals.
