Next-generation ROBO Cylinder®
Advantages of Products Equipped
with Battery-less Absolute Encoder.
New Cleanroom, Dust/ Splash-proof Series Added!
Customers can choose from a lineup
of 156 models that best suits their needs.
Equipped with High Resolution Battery-less Absolute Encoder as Standard
Battery maintenance is not required because there is no battery.
Since home-return is not required at equipment startup or after an emergency stop, this feature reduces operation time and production costs.
Price is the same as the conventional incremental encoders.
Improved Positioning Repeatability for Standard Specification: ±10μm
±20μm of positioning repeatability for the current ROBO Cylinder has improved.
Selection of PowerCON® Compatible Controllers Is Available
The RCP6 is compatible with PowerCON, the controller equipped with a high-output driver.
The stepper motor achieves higher output, thanks to the PowerCON. This has reduced production cycle time, leading to improved productivity.
You can choose from two controllers with PowerCON: the "separate type" and "built-in type".
Please check our latest controller catalog
Built-in Controller Type RCP6S
Standard/separate controller type RCP6 or built-in controller type RCP6S can be selected for all models. A maximum of 16 axes of RCP6S (relayed through a hub unit) can be connected to one gateway unit. In addition, the gateway unit can supply the motor power and control power needed for all connected axes, therefore only requiring one cable (power and communication line) for the RCP6S.
RCP6S with built-In controller advantages:
RCP6S Gateway Controller
This controller can connect RCP, RCA, and RCD series actuators to an RCP6S gateway unit and hub unit.
Mini ROBO Cylinders and gripper type actuators can be added to the RCP6S network.

ROBO Cylinder RCP6 Series Demo
The RPC6 series is equipped with the battery-less absolute encoder as standard, PowerCON motor technology, and we now offer a high resolution version, which is capable of +/- 5 microns repeatability.
We are also introducing a built-in controller version RCP6S, which is very space-saving and allows up to 16 axes to connect from one Gateway unit for Fieldbus compatibility.
You will also notice our wide-body slider types and wide-body radial cylinder types.
The wide-slider types allow 14 times greater dynamic moment than the standard units.
