July 15, 2010 - EPSON Robots introduces the RC620+ open architecture PC based workcell controller. The RC620+ is capable of controlling up to 4 SCARA robots, 3 Six Axis robots or 2 SCARA and 2 Six Axis robots, for a total of up to 20 axes of motion. 3 PCI slots are available for options such as Vision Systems, Fieldbus masters or third party plug-in cards to expand the RC620+ controller as needed for particular applications. The RC620+ runs a separate CPU 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. 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 and I/O control. The RC620+ controller comes with EPSON RC+ Controls software, capable of controlling up to 48 simultaneous tasks.
