Our PC based vision guide solutions have a variety of hardware configurations providing users with the right tools for the job. With support for up to 16 monochrome cameras, to color vision to vision based conveyor tracking, we have the right vision solution for your next application.

CV1 Vision Guidance

While easy to learn and use, Epson CV1 Vision Systems reduce overall development time while providing powerful Vision Tools to solve complex vision applications. And with the EPSON CV1 you get all this and more at a value price. (For RC90 and RC180 Controllers)

Epson CV2 Vision Systems are high-performance "Vision Guide" solutions. At up to 8x the speed of our CV1 Vision Systems, CV2s go to the next level of high-performance vision solutions while still powerful and easy to use of Epson Vision Guide. Supports up to 4 GigE and 2 USB 2.0 Cameras. (For RC90 and RC700x Controllers)

Fieldbus

Fieldbus I/O is used in factories worldwide to reduce setup time, cabling costs, and to promote standard device usage. There are many Fieldbus I/O standards, the most common being DeviceNet, Profibus, EtherNet/IP and CC-Link. The Epson Controllers support all four of these options.

Fieldbus Options

Support for EtherNet/IP, DeviceNet, and Profibus in Master configuration. Support for EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, DeviceNet, Profibus, ProfiNet and CC-Link fieldbus systems in slave configurations.

Software Options

Epson provides integrated software options to help developers and users reduce the time it takes to build their systems. Powerful user interface tools such as GUI Builder, application-specific tools such as integrated force sensing, and connectivity tools like VB Guide allow control from Visual Basic, C#, or LabView, and many more options.

.NET Support

Program your robot using familiar 3rd party .NET compliant tools and programming environments such as Microsoft Visual Studio (C/C++, C#, VB, etc), Labview and more. Full support for 400+ commands from the SPEL+ language library as well as events, Epson RC+ components, and many other capabilities.

GUI Builder

Want to build your own Operator GUI? GUI Builder provides a point and click interface for building a GUI directly from within the Epson RC+ development environment. It doesn't get much easier than this.

Epson RC+ 7.0 API

One of the powerful features of VB Guide/RC+ 7.0 API is full integration with EPSON Vision Guide. Adding vision to your VB Guide/RC+ 7.0 API-based application is easily done in minutes vs. the hours it would normally take using other methods.

Expansion I/O

Epson Robots come standard with a variety of I/O. However, many applications require additional I/O for interfacing with peripheral workcell equipment like conveyors, grippers, and tooling. For this reason, we offer additional I/O boards that are easy to install and use.

RC90 Expansion I/O

While value priced the RC90 controller comes with 40 I/O points standard, just like the RC180 and RC620+ controllers. Up to two expansion I/O boards with 24 inputs and 16 outputs each can be installed in an RC180 controller making for 80 total additional I/O as an option.

Other Options

Epson has a variety of additional options such as Conveyor Tracking, Teach Pendants, Tool Adapters, Terminal Blocks and much more.

Teach Pendant (TP1)

While the Epson RC+ development environment provides an excellent Jog and Teach screen, some customers still like to use our Teach Pendants. Sold as an option, the Teach Pendant (TP1) is especially popular with 6-axis users.

Teach Pendant (TP3)

The Epson TP3 is the newest in our family of Teach Pendants with a full color touch screen interface, 3D robot viewing and much more. The Epson TP3 works with the RC700A controller.

Conveyor Tracking

Both sensor and vision based conveyor tracking is supported with the Epson Conveyor Tracking option. Wizards are used to help reduce setup time and full integration with Epson Vision Guide makes conveyor tracking easy to use.
