Productive Robotics Inc. has updated its software for its full line-up of OB7 collaborative robots. The software update enhances OB7’s connectivity, allowing for efficient integration with other equipment and for easily accessible status monitoring, according to the company.

The OB7 now directly monitors and controls machines it’s working with, including instant connection to machines with Rockwell Automation's Ethernet IP, and other compatible controls.

Other updates include live online status monitoring; email and text message alerts for status updates, machine stoppages or issues; complete interoperability and collaboration with other smart camera systems; and more than 30 convenience functions.

These software updates further support teams in their ability to easily and quickly set up and operate the OB7 with minimal outside assistance, the company says. The monitoring and alert features add value to OB7’s lights out operation as well. Businesses using OB7 enjoy even more peace of mind knowing that, even when there are no employees on site, these features allow them to check in and receive notifications if any issues arise.

OB7 offers ultimate flexibility thanks to its seventh axis. Like a human arm, seven joints give OB7 the flexibility and dexterity to reach around objects or obstacles where others can’t. Unlike a human arm, each of OB7’s joints can rotate 360 degrees in both directions, allowing the cobot to work in more confined workspaces and areas that a six-axis robot can’t reach.
