Epson Robots has introduced a new model to their range of robot controllers. The RC620+ is a 4th generation open architecture PC based workcell controller, combining ease of use with Epson RC+ development software.

The RC620+ is capable of controlling up to:

  • 4 SCARA robots
  • 3 Six Axis robots; or
  • 2 SCARA and 2 Six Axis robots.
RC620+ robot controllers are expandable, with 3 PCI slots available for options such as Vision Systems, Fieldbus masters or third party plug-in cards.

A separate CPU is dedicated to motion control and real time options including:

  • additional I/O
  • conveyor tracking
  • expansion I/O and DeviceNet
  • Profibus; and
  • EtherNet/IP Fieldbus slave options.
These allows users to take full advantage of the open architecture, ease of use and expandability of Microsoft Windows while also utilising real time performance for time critical components such as motion and I/O control.

RC620+ robot controllers are provided with Epson RC+ Controls software.

At the heart of Epson RC+ is Epson’s Real Time Engine, capable of controlling up to 48 simultaneous tasks. It also features the robust SPEL+ language.

Michael Ferrara, director of Epson Robots says that RC620+ robot controllers are designed “for those applications that require a powerful open architecture solution for system expansion and advanced motion and I/O control.”
