various peripherals in a complex system.
The Epson RC700-A is also designed for the new generation of robots featuring Epson QMEMS® sensor technology.
OPEN SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE
The Epson RC700-A can communicate with all conventional fi eld bus systems and is open
for the connection of lower and higher level controllers, sensors, actors, conveyor belts
and other peripherals. This means that the RC700-A can take over all robot control, motion
control and process control functions - without the need for a PLC.
If several robots and peripherals are connected to the controller, the RC700-A’s multi-tasking ability enables you to use your system more effectively and with less susceptibility to problems. Synchronisation
takes place using markers and without additional wiring being required.
The RC700-A can process 48 multi-tasks. Of these 16 tasks can be used as background tasks - even if the robot program is interrupted. This multi-tasking ability means that even complex processes can be
controlled easily within the work cell.
RC700-A DRIVE UNITS – THE PLUS FOR MANIPULATORS
Would you like to increase the number of manipulators in your system which are controlled with a single controller? The RC700-A drive units can be used to control up to 4 manipulators with ease. This enables you
to synchronise robots which work together in a working environment easily using tasks and markers
The RC700-A drive units are available in two versions:
• RC700-A DU4 for additional 4-axis robots
• RC700-A DU6 for additional 6-axis robots
