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.

Force Guide

  • Simple development environment: Epson Robots + Force Sensors (S250 series)
  • RC+ 7.0 robot software provides GUIs (force editor and force monitor GUIs) for using our force sensors. In addition, Epson’s SPEL+ robot language has robot commands for using force sensors, so you can use our force sensors in the same environment as the robot programming environment.

  • Force Sensor S250 series key features: High rigidity & High sensitivity
  • High rigidity and sensitivity enable even very small forces to be detected with good response. A rugged and durable build limits deformation of the sensors themselves and prevents the sensors from sensing forces in unintended directions while also preventing loss of responsiveness.

VB Guide

    Program and execute robot applications in a familiar Windows OS environment

  • Robots can be controlled using Visual Basic, Visual C++, Visual C#, LabVIEW, and other third-party programming languages.
  • Robot status and variable values can be captured.
  • The following EPSON RC+ windows and dialogs can be called from within a .NET application:
    Robot Manager
    I/O Monitor
    Task Manager
    Maintenace Dialog



External control point operation for precise positioning without complex calculations

  • For processes requiriyng the workpece to be moved against a fixed tool, external control points can be used to ensure precise positioning.
  • Up to 15 external control points can be set.

GUI Builder

Easily create custom interfaces for your control programs

  • Quickly and easily create control program custom interfaces that can take the place of dedicated PLCs and display devices.
  • Full-featured toolset is easy to understand and use.
  • Enables simple GUI creation without using Visual Studio or other third-party software tools.
  • Makes it easy to build a graphical user interface, even if you've never built one before.


Restrict user access to programming functions for greater safety and security

  • Password-based protection levels can be set to restrict access to some parts of the EPSON RC+ system.
  • Helps prevent accidental or unauthorizes alteration of control programs when multiple operators need to have access to basic controls.


Integrated force-sensing technology for realtime force contorol

conveyer tracking

  • Allows you to easily integrate force-sensing capability into your control programs.*
  • Force/torque values can be set for just one axis, or all six.
  • Trigger values can be set to stop robot motion when a specific force level is reached.
  • Up to two sensors can be mounted; data from sensors can be shared by multiple programs.

*ATI Industrial Automation, Inc force/torque components must be purchased separately.


Optical character recognition of text on parts and labels

  • For use with optional Vision Guide software.
  • Enables you to specify the font, font size, and number of characters of text that you want to read from an image.
  • A font creation function lets you create SEMI fonts and user-defined fonts from imaged characters or ASCII conversion files.
