motion control - electromate roboticsVaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control Products — Mecademic is pleased to release firmware version 8.4 for its
Meca500 industrial robotic arm. Mecademic’s firmware releases are provided free of charge, along with complimentary technical support.

Features & benefits

Joint 6 multi-rotation with cartesian moves

Although rotating Joint 6 beyond the ±180° has always been possible with the Meca500 R3, it was limited to Joint-move-commands. With this new firmware, both point-to-point and linear commands can now be used outside of this limit. Apart from the benefit of no longer being limited in Cartesian space and requiring switching to Joint commands, new applications are now easier to implement directly with the Meca500.
