Fault detection function

  • The fault detection function detects failing or deteriorating robot parts at an early stage.
  • Detecting failing parts before abnormalities in robot behavior become apparent reduces downtime.
  • Set a threshold value that suits your needs.
    A warning of failing or deteriorating parts will trigger if the value exceeds the predetermined detection level.

*The score is calculated for reduction gears while the motor is running at a speed of 500 rpm or more.
