In 2019 more than 2.5 million industrial robots will be in operation worldwide, according to a forecast of the international federation of robotics. An industrial robot typically consists out of a control cabinet, a robot arm and a Human Machine Interface (HMI) Panel. To guarantee safe operation of the complete robot system, the different robot components and its interfaces need to be isolated to each other. To better understand the topic of isolation in respect to industrial robots, this training explains:

  • Why isolation is needed
  • Different isolation levels
  • What challenges need to be solved when two systems need to be isolated from each other
