Control Command

An instruction fed to the robot by means of the human-to-machine input device. See Pendant (Teaching). This command is received by the robot's controller system and is interpreted. Then, the proper instruction is fed to the robot's actuators, which enable it to react to the initial command. Many times the command must be interpreted with the use of logic units and specific algorithms. See Input Device and Instruction Cycle.
