The smartPad-2 is a lightweight, anatomically shaped control panel for robot programming and control. Its ergonomically designed housing offers a desk-like storage option as a tabletop unit as well as various holding options for long and comfortable operation for left- and right-handers. It is made of two-component plastic, equipped with a circumferential, elastic strap for universal industrial heavy-duty use, and passed a two-metre drop test. The floating mounted, also shock- and scratch-resistant, anti-glare 8.4” touch display is easy to operate. With the 6D mouse, the user can control the robot quickly and intuitively.
