EPSON Vision camera recognition

With the EPSON robots you can basically use any kind of camera system, but you need to make the physical and software communication yourself. If you want a simpler solution, choose one of EPSON's own vision systems.

EPSON Vision Systems are easy to connect to the robot's controller. You can program it from within RC+ (EPSON robot's programming environment). All the camera results will be available instantly for the robot, ready to use.

Choose from 3 types of camera solutions

EPSON offers 3 different types of vision solutions. Their programming is basically the same. The main difference is in processing speed, number and type of cameras that can be connected.

CV1, Compact Vision:
for standard vision applications
CV2, Compact Vision:
for high speed vision applications
PV1, PC Vision:
can be installed on an external Windows PC
