FS100 Controller with Open Software Architecture from Yaskawa

Yaskawa Motoman FS100 Controller Provides Powerful Controls and Open Software Architecture in a Compact Package

Yaskawa Motoman’s high-performance FS100 controller is designed with open software architecture and supports PCI Express, C#, C++, .NET, ROS-Industrial™, LabVIEW™ and INFORM III. The FS100 enables OEMs, machine builders and integrators to develop their own customized software solutions.


To meet the growing needs of customers, it is often necessary to create custom functionality for the robot controller. The FS100 design leverages hardware standards and open software to allow easy extensibility of the controls. It is now possible for users or system integrators to easily integrate off-the- shelf hardware or write value-added functions to the robot controller.

Designed for packaging, assembly and material handling applications, the FS100 controller is compatible with Motoman ® robots with payloads up to 20 kg, including the high-speed MPP3-series delta-style robots.
