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

Vision Guide

Advanced machine vision systems with user-friendly software for easy program development

Vision Guide

  • Built- in image processing engine assists vision-to-robot calibration, making it much easier to align the robot's coordinate system with the camera's field of view.
  • Simple setup-only a camera and controller are needed.
  • Advanced pattern matching and geometric search tools enable easy solution program development without writing a single line of code.

Vision Guide

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

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)
