FANUC Controllers


R 30iA

Fanuc robotics system R-30iA Controller uses advanced technology package in a proven, reliable and efficient design.

The R-30iA Controller offers enhanced vibration control. This greatly reduced the robot’s acceleration and deceleration times leading to reduced cycle times.the controller provides an integrated 2D vision system to speed-up the installation of vision applications, this can be easily upgraded to provide a 3D vision system.


The controller can manage up to 40 axes that are using FANUC motors (divided in up to 5 groups; one group can control up to 9 axes), such as:

•4 robot arms

•4 auxiliary axes groups (arc welding positioners, robot rails, servo hands, grippers...)

There are three types of motion control available:

• Extended auxiliary axes: for robot rails and simple tools (grippers)

• Nobot: for servo driven tools and other intelligent peripherals

• Positioner: for arc welding positioners, with coordinated motion between robot and positioner.


R J3The advanced technology of the FANUC R-J3 controller makes it a proven, reliable third generation controller.

The open architecture features and process capability improve application and motion performance while simplifying system integration.

FANUC's unique plug-in option allows flexibility for application specific configurations.


  • 32-bit dual processor architecture (separate motion and communication) with real-time clock/calendar
  • Built-in Ethernet (10BaseT)
  • FTP: allows simple file transfers to a variety of host platforms
  • Ethernet Controller Backup/ Restore: provides backup and/or restore of the robot Controller memory image
  • Three RS-232 ports (one can be configured as RS-422)
  • Teach Pendant: Back-lit LCD, multi-function


R J2The FANUC R-J2 controller incorporates the most advanced and proven technology to improve total system performance while simplifying overall cell and system integration. The FANUC R-J2controller provides the optimal level of performance with any level of system requirements.


  • 32-bit main CPU and math coprocessor permit quick calculations, reduce program execution times and increase path accuracy
  • Advanced communications and networking capabilities
  • Distributed I/O option reduces cabling costs and simplifies troubleshooting
  • Fast powerup and program execution with auto resume

The RJ2 controller is attached to the robot and contains the power supply, operator controls, control circuitry, and memory that direct the operation and motion of the robot and communication with external devices. You control the robot using a teach pendant or an operator panel. Some systems contain an optional cathode ray tube/keyboard (CRT/KB) or an optional user operator panel (UOP) that provides a remote user interface to the controller.

The controller has the capability of communicating with a variety of devices. Its I/O system provides an interface between the system software through I/O signals and serial communication ports to external devices.

Remote I/O interfaces allow the controller to send signals to a remote device over a single cable. Consult your FANUC / FANUC Robotics representative for more information.

The motion system directs robot motion for all robot axes. Controller memory stores the HandlingTool software in addition to any user-defined programs and data.
