The Epson RC700D controller is the next generation high performance controller line with both power, open architecture and leading edge ease of use. More than just a connection to a PC, the RC700D integrates both the power of PC based controls with the with the power of a real time engine running the up to 32 tasks and the SPEL+ language. In addition, the RC700D uses our Epson RC+ 7.0 development environment which is the leading edge in ease of use. Advanced and beginning users alike select the RC700D as their robot controller of choice because it can help save time and money with every application. The RC700D provides superior PowerDrive servo control for super smooth motion, fast accel/decel times, and fast cycle times. The RC700D works with the GX-Series SCARA robots. All of this along with an open architecture design allows customers to add 3rd party software and hardware to build systems to suit their needs.

The RC700D comes standard with the latest version (7.0) of our leading edge Epson RC+ Controls software and lots of fully integrated options. As the Industry Leader in ease of use, Epson RC+ wizards, point and click setup, Jog and Teach window, Integrated Debugger, Epson Smartsense and many other features help reduce overall development time as compared to competitive robot systems. In addition, options such as Vision Guidance, .NET support (RC+ 7.0 API), EtherNet/IP, DeviceNet, Profibus, GUI Builder and much more are fully integrated into the Epson RC+ development environment to help maximize performance and ease of use.
