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. 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, and 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.
In addition to all of these great features, the RC620+ controller also provides industry leading EPSON RC+ Controls software. At the heart of EPSON RC+ is EPSON’s Real Time Engine, capable of controlling up to 48 simultaneous tasks.
