Original Press Release:
New RC420 Compact PC Based Controller
One of the things our customers like most about EPSON Robots is our great RC520 PC based Controller. The intuitive interface is a delight to learn and use and the powerful SPEL+ language is a favorite of system designers throughout the world. One of the requests we have heard quite a few times from our customers was for a PC based controller product that could be shrunk down in size and into a single box solution vs. the 2 box RC520 solution.
EPSON is now happy to announce the RC420 Compact PC Based Controller. This new small form factor controller is just a bit larger than an industrial PC but packs all the same power our users have come to know and expect from our RC520 PC based controller. So the RC420 with its power in a small form factor is now quickly becoming the EPSON robot controller of choice. When factory floor space is at a premium the RC420 is a great solution. And the beautiful part is that you don't have to sacrifice performance or flexibility to get the compact size.
