August 2, 2010 - Precise Automation introduced the Guidance System D4/D6, a complete four or six-axis vision-guided motion control system in a compact enclosure. The Guidance System D4/D6 (GS-D4/D6)includes all of the electronic components necessary to operate a robotic mechanism: a four or six-axis motion controller, motor and logic power supplies, fans and filters for cooling and easy-to-use standard connectors. This hardware is combined with Precise's modern, full-featured programming language and kinematic library. Therefore, the GS-D4/D6 integrates easily with third party mechanisms such as the DENSO Robotics HS series SCARA or VP series 6-Axis Articulated Robots. For customers who wish to use third party robots, but desire the features of a Guidance Controller, this system provides a convenient, ready-to-use alternative to purchasing, mounting and wiring all of the motion control components necessary for a complete system. All Guidance System D4/D6's include a Precise Automation Guidance 2000C series motion controller. Its User Interface is based on a built-in web server that permits the controller to be accessed from anywhere in the world for easy development, operation, and maintenance. The software includes a complete set of motion commands, machine kinematics, a continuous path motion planner and trajectory generator, a powerful language, Active X and .Net links to Microsoft software, and an optional machine vision package that can execute in a networked PC. The vision software contains measurement tools and a patented object locator that can find multiple instances of parts in any orientation, even with cluttered backgrounds.
