uniVAL plc – robot control via function blocks in your PLC

The purpose of uniVAL plc is to drive Stäubli robots with industrial PLCs, connected to the robot controller via a standard fieldbus.

  • Driving a robot with a PLC 
  • The motion trajectories can be taught with the Stäubli teaching pendant 
  • The robot maintenance is still performed with the Stäubli maintenance tools 
  • Based on standard fieldbus communication
Principles
  • Library of function blocks on the PLC side to perform motion trajectories and other operations (uniVAL plc client*) 
  • A database accessible and modifi able by uniVAL plc client is hosted on the robot (uniVAL plc server) 
  • The database can contain motion trajectories and other data 
  • The communication between uniVAL plc client and uniVAL plc server is performed over the fi eldbus, based on a Stäubli-defi ned standard
Main benefits
  • Reducing development and training costs
    The programming is done within the PLC environment
  • Reduced commissioning costs
    The communication is based on simple, easy to access I / Os
  • The motion trajectories can be stored on the PLC side
    The motion data used by uniVAL plc server can be accessed and modifi ed by uniVAL plc client
  • Standardization over the entire production line
    Compatible with all the CS8 and CS9 generation Stäubli robots, even already installed systems 
  • Open and adaptable system
    Development and customization of functions can be done by the end user
Commissioning
  • uniVAL plc server is installed on the robot (done at the factory if the robot is ordered with the option)
  • Installation of function blocks library in the PLC environment (uniVAL plc client)
  • Configuration of the fi eldbus on the PLC side
  • Motion trajectories teaching
  • Development of PLC program
OPTION
  • The motion teaching interface can be hosted on the PLC side (remote MCP Option)
  • Stäubli assistance for customization of an existing uniVAL plc client (new function blocks, etc …)
  • Stäubli assistance for the development of a new uniVAL plc client for any PLC
