Outline: Universal Controller YHX series

YAMAHA's Advanced Robotics Automation Platform realizes cooperative motions and synchronized control among all the robots, peripheral units and devices that make up an automated line.


Universal Controller YHX series

Excellent expandability significantly saves space, reduces costs, and decreases setup man-hours.

PC Programming Software

PC operating environment
*OS : Windows 7 SP1/8/8.1/10 (64-bit version only for all)
*Memory : 8 GB or larger

Example System of system configuration

An example using
a host controller unit


An example using
a gateway driver power unit



01Universal Control System

“FA Universal Controller” that structure an automation production line Structure all robots and peripheral devices that support the Advanced Robotics Automation Platform with a common platform.
This enables to maximize the potential of production line.

Centralized and Integrated Control
The robot integration significantly reduces time-consuming work of automatization.

Integrating a high performance PLC function
One single YHX controller enables universal control.

Completely commonizing archtecture

02Minimizing Cost

System operation restricted to the labor cost of installation and setup. YHX controller provides more choices and options.

Stacking modular structure
No wiring between modules needed.

Space efficiency in control panel
One stop solution to problems with control panels

The remote IO unit wiring convenience
Reducing actual wiring lengths and simplifying wiring work

03Commonizing Line Operation

Same commands control all robots and peripheral devices
Enables to build up a improved production line in a short period of time

Unitized PLC control and robot control


Compatible with various field networks a flexible network
Enables to build up a improved production line in a short period of time

Need to control more axis?
Support a large scale system

Outline of programming

The YHX controller chooses the programming languages from the graphic language (LD) and text language (ST) that are defined by the International Electrotechnical Commission’s IEC61131-3. You can choose the optimal language that suits you purpose.

Ladder diagram (LD)Graphic language

This graphic language is configured by contacts and coils. Since it uses circuit diagram similar to those of relay sequence circuits, it is fit for I/O interlock processing or similar operations.

Structured text (ST)Text language

This is a text language based on the general-purpose programming language “PASCAL”. In the same manner as the sophisticated language “C Language”, you can describe the control by syntax (a control syntax by conditional branch based on a conditional sentence and by loop statement). This is particularly powerful for arithmetic expressions and data processing.

  • A control syntax by conditional branch based on a conditional sentence and by loop statement
  • Equation using operators (such as * , /, +, -, <, >)
  • Calling up functions
  • Description of comments using full block characters (2 bytes) such as Kanji and Hiragana
