RC90 is the standard controller of the C, G, RS and S-Series robots. The robots are connected to the controller. All programming is done on the controller, and communication with other parts of the robotic cell are also done through it. The RC180 includes everything that is needed to operate the robot, and its capabilities can be extended with various options.
The RC180 doesn't just control the robot, it can be used to control other systems of the robotic cell, with or without the robot. Programming of the controller is done using the Windows-based EPSON RC+ environment, which is simple to understand and quick to learn. Wide range of communication options ara available to communicate with other industrial devices.

EPSON robot programming is done in a Windows-based programming environment called
EPSON RC+. The programming language itself is called SPEL+.
SPEL+ is very similar to BASIC. It is quick to learn and easy to understand. After programming and compiling in EPSON RC+, the program is transferred to the robot controller. From that point, the controller controlls the robot (without the need of the PC).
Do you need to control other devices as well? No problem. SPEL+ can do a lot more than just robot control. It is a multitasking language, capable of controlling task parallel or independent of the robot.
SPEL+ includes a wide range ot motion commands: PTP (point-to-point motion), linear motion, CP (continuous path motion), etc. or special motion commands such as Jump or Palletizing commands.
With the use of the 3D robot simulator, you can plan ahead, design and simulate your application before your robot even arrives. Inside EPSON RC+ you can add 3D models to model your robotic cell, and check the cycle times. You can run study and verify your concept ideal before having to manufacture anything.
For vision applications you can use EPSON's own smart camera system.
It connects to the robot controller simply through an Ethernet network, and its prorgamming is fully integrated
into the EPSON RC+ robot programming environment. For standard camera applications we offer the CV1 Compact Vision
system with support up to 2 cameras.
The CV1 can be ordered with 2 different types of cameras: the standard camera (640 x 480 pixels) and a higher resolution camera (1280 x 1024 pixels), for mobile and fixed applications. For maximum flexibility and a perfect fit for your needs, we offer different size lens for the cameras.
