EPSON Robots G and RS Series Scara Robots Get New Controller

The EPSON RC700A Controller - More Power, Performance, and Ease of Use

Carson, CA - EPSON Robots, the global leader in Industrial SCARA Robots, announces the addition of the G and RS-Series SCARA robots to the RC700A Controller platform. As the leader in PC based robot controls, the high performance RC700A controller can now be used with EPSON C4 6-axis, G-Series SCARA, and RS-Series SCARA robots. With powerful integrated options and PC based ease of use, the RC700A helps reduce development time, improve cycle times/throughput and save customers money.

"Our customers made EPSON Robots the #1 SCARA vendor in the world based on the performance, reliability, ease of use, and wide variety of our SCARA robot lineup" stated Michael Ferrara, Director of EPSON Robots. "We just made the best robots even better. With the RC700A, customers now get access to more powerful vision guidance (EPSON CV2 Vision), the ability to select the PC performance level they need for their application (Customer Supplied PC), access to more ease of use tools (EPSON RC+), and of course the advanced motion and I/O control capabilities they have come to depend on with EPSON based controllers."

With over 200 different robot models to choose from, the RC700A can run both SCARA and 6-axis robot applications with or without a user supplied PC. Most core options run directly from the RC700A and no PC is required. This gives users the best of both worlds with the open architecture, ease of use and expandability of Microsoft Windows while also providing real time performance for time critical components such as motion, cell logic and I/O control.

As the Industry Leader in ease of use, all RC700A controllers come standard with EPSON RC+ Controls Software which includes feature wizards, point and click setup, Jog and Teach panel, Integrated Source Level Debugger, EPSON SmartSense and many other features that help reduce overall development time as compared to competitive robot systems. EPSON RC+ software and the RC700A controller offer fully integrated options including: Vision Guidance, Conveyor Tracking, Force Sensing, EtherNet/IP, DeviceNet, Profibus, .NET connectivity, GUI Builder for user made GUI's, and much more. Shouldn't you have the controller that offers the most flexible solution - built for high performance, and made for Ease of Use from the company you know you can trust?

Bitflow is the leader in CoaXPress

With the introduction of its Cyton and Karbon CXP frame grabbers, BitFlow has established itself as the leader in CoaXPress (CXP), a simple, yet powerful, standard for moving high speed serial data from a camera to a frame grabber. With CXP, video is captured at speeds of up to 6.25 Gigabits/Second (Gb/S). Simultaneously, control commands and triggers can be sent to the camera 20 Mb/S (with a trigger accuracy of +/- 2 nanoseconds). Up to 13 W of power can also supplied to the camera. All this happens over a single piece of industry standard 75 Ohm coaxial cable. Multiple CXP links can be aggregated to support higher data rates (e.g. four links provide 25 Gb/S of data). BitFlow CXP frame grabbers open the door to applications where cable cost, routing requirements and long distances have prevented the move to high resolution, high speed digital cameras. In many cases, existing coaxial infrastructure can be repurposed for CXP with very low installation costs.
