The new EPSON RC+ Simulator is a powerful addition to EPSON RC+ 5.0. Not only can users now create complete EPSON RC+ projects at their desks, they can also add obstructions so developers can identify potential collision points. Users can also save simulations of their applications as AVI movie files. This is extremely useful for showing robot motions to others. EPSON RC+ 5.0 works with standard PC’s running Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7.
The high performance Micro PowerDrive RC180 Controller comes standard with EPSON RC+ 5.0 which provides the ultimate experience in ease of use, compact size, and reliability. Why choose a low performance solution when you can have a high performance development environment with Micro PowerDrive Controller?
