igus Robot Control

The igus Robot Control software (iRC) is used to move, program and configure the robot. It works together with the embedded robot control software TinyCtrl that executes the robot programs and handles the motion so the robot can work without a connected PC.

You can download iRC and updates for the embedded control here:

Firmware Updates and Configuration

The software Module Control Closed Loop can be used to move and configure single axes of the robot. This is intended for troubleshooting and you should not need to use it unless issues occur. Module Control also includes updates for the firmware of the motor controllers.

ReBeL joints for custom applications

Single ReBeL joints can be bought for custom applications. Please read Rebel Joint for information on how to communicate with the motor control electronics.
