Integrated vision guidance with easy configuration and calibration.

Designed for vision guidance applications, Epson Vision Guide makes precision robotic guidance easy to use. Fully integrated within the Epson RC+® development environment for easy configuration and calibration, this intuitive solution features a point-and-click interface that makes it simple for users of all levels. It also features wizards and auto calibration methods, plus a combination robot/vision simulator for rapid offline testing. With a single point of support for both robots and vision guidance, Epson Vision Guide allows for fast development and simplified maintenance. An efficient and versatile solution, it also includes tools to address inspection, gauging and barcodes.

Vision Systems Available

CV2 vision systems take vision guidance performance to the next level providing powerful solutions at great value. CV2 provides tremendous processing power for even the toughest vision applications. The vision systems contain powerful CPUs and vision processing that runs in parallel with Epson controllers, allowing for maximum throughput. Two (2) core models are available depending on speed requirements: CV2SA and CV2HA with the CV2HA being approximately 2x the speed of the CV2SA. Up to 6 cameras are supported: 2 USB and 4 GigE cameras.

Enjoy the complete performance of Epson Vision Guide conveniently from your PC, with up to 8 GigE cameras supported. Separate vision system controllers are not required for this configuration.
