The high performance RC620+ provides the ultimate experience of industry leading ease of use with EPSON RC+ development software. Leading the industry in PC based controls for industrial robots, the powerful RC620+ is capable of controlling up to four SCARA robots, three Six-Axis robots or two SCARA and two Six-Axis robots.

Three 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.
