Improve operability with this new device

| By Gerald Ondrey

The R86TB Teach Pendant (photo) handles a series of processes from setup to maintenance, relieving the need for an on-site computer to reduce time and costs. The R86TB has a 10.1-in. high-definition display so that any function can be easily visible and accessed from the customizable home screen or page list. Major functions of Melsoft RT ToolBox 3, the company’s PC-based robot programming software, are accessible and equipped to provide program support functions, parameter and program screens, 3-D monitoring, and more. Additional features of the R86TB include data analysis and real-time monitoring to perform trouble diagnosis, secure hardware buttons for tactile and consistent operation, improved processing speeds, and security functions. — Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc.
