Controller options

Text SizeSmallLarge

A wide range of controller options can be employed to further expand the variety of process tasks that you can automate.

Conveyor tracking

Precision tracking for high-productivity pick-and-place operation

conveyer tracking

  • Vision system with Vision Guide software detects workpiece for pick-and-place handling.
    Multi-conveyor, multi-effector setups are supported.
  • Canautomate manual kitting / packaging tasks and help maintain productivity regardless of continuous / intermittent conveyor operation. Can also be used for workpiece assembly.
  • Simple start / stop program execution

Teaching pendant TP1

Versatile control with just a few keystrokes

TP1

  • IP65-rated enclosure is sealed against oil and dust for reliable operation in adverse conditions.
    Shock-resistant contruction helps protect unit from impact damage.
  • Universal design ensures ease of use for both right-handed and left-handed operators.
  • Connects directly to operator unit or controller interface card (Interface is built-in on RC180/RC620 controllers).
    Menus can be displayed in English, German, French, or Japanese.

Features

  • Point data save, edit, and load functions
  • Keyword cadidate display, search, and line jump functions
  • I/O and task monitoring functions
  • Project / system data backup and restore functions
  • Reduced operating speed in teach mode for enhanced safety and programing ease

Teaching pendant TP2

TP2

Easy-to-use pendant for teaching

  • Universal design ensures ease of use for both right-handed and left-handed operators.
  • Connects directly to operator unit or controller interface card .

Teaching pendant TP3

TP3

Feature-rich tablet-type teaching pendant with large color touchscreen

  • It has a 10.1-inch color touchscreen panel and an intuitive interface.
  • Intuitive touch operation makes the panel far easier to operate than other pendant-based panels, and users will easily be able to teach even complex six-axis robots tasks.
  • Users will also be able to use the TP3 to make robot parameter changes, a task that used to require a PC, thus contributing to improved efficiency of robot setup.


Operator Panel OP1

OP1

Versatile control with just a few keystrokes

  • Controller and error status display
  • oil-and dust-resistant construction
  • Simple start / stop program execution.

PG motion system

Control peripheral robots for fully integrated process automation

  • EPSON RC+ software and pulse generator (PG) cards enable control of multiple third-party drives and motors.
  • PG robots and standard EPSON RC+ system robots can be operated simultaneously, and controlled using the same commands.
  • PG cards can be used to control X/Y tables, sliders, turrets, and a wide range of other production/inspection line peripherals.
  • Each PG card has 4 channels, and can support from 1 to 4 robots. Up to 4 cards can be mounted.

RS-232C cards

Expanded serial port connecivity

  • 4-port (for RC180/RC620 controllers) and 2-port (for RC90 controllers) RS-232C cards to connect serial interface device.

I/O expansion cards

Expanded input/output flexibility

  • 32-point I/O (for RC180/RC620 controllers) and 24 inputs/16 outputs (for RC90 controllers) expansion cards.

Field bus I/O(slave)

High-speed peripheral connectivity

  • Support for DeviceNet® *1, PROFIBUS® *2, CC-Link® *3, Ethernet/IP*4, and PROFINET networked peripherals (256-point I/O).

Field bus I/O(master)

Bidirectional high-speed peripheral connectivity

  • Support for DeviceNet® *1, PROFIBUS® *2, and EthernetI/P *4 networked peripherals (1024-point I/O).
