RC90 is a compact Robot Controller of the LS-Series robots. The LS robots are connected to this controller. All programming is done on the controller, and communication with other parts of the robotic cell are also done through it. The RC90 includes everything that is needed to operate the robot, and its capabilities can be extended with various options.
The RC90 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.
You can choose form a wide range of camera systems offered by the automation industry. But EPSON also provides its own solution. EPSON's vision systems are integrated with the robot's software, making it easy to connect and to access all the parameters and results of the camera system.
The CV1 (Compact Vision) controller connects to
the robot controller via Ethernet. Programming is done from inside EPSON RC+.
The CV1 supports up to 2 x EPSON USB cameras (VGA, 1.3MP or 5MP).
The CV2 connect to the robot controller via Ethernet connection. The CV2 offers quicker processing and supports high speed GigE cameras for faster data transfers. Programming is done inside EPSON RC+. The CV2 supports up to 4 x GigE cameras and up to 2 x USB cameras at the same time.
The EPSON PV1 is a customizable option. It is installed on a Windows PC, that connects to the robot controller. The processing speed is the function of the hardware used. The PV1 support up to 8 x EPSON GigE cameras which are available in different color modes or resolutions.
