IntervalZero to Highlight Vision-Controlled Motion for Collaborative Robots at TAIROS 2016
IntervalZero Posted 11/15/2016
TAIPEI, Taiwan--IntervalZero, the industry’s leading solution for transforming Windows into a real-time operating system (RTOS), will be showcasing its innovative RTX64 solution and the KINGSTAR platform for PC-based motion control and machine vision at the Taiwan Automation Intelligence and Robot Show (TAIROS) in Taipei, Taiwan from August 31 – September 3, 2016.
IntervalZero will demo its cutting-edge machine control solutions throughout the TAIROS show, at its own booth, K226, and a deep-dive, half-day seminar. Demos will showcase KINGSTAR 2.6, an open, standards-based platform that enables engineers to design, develop and integrate motion control and machine vision applications with either KINGSTAR’s soft motion library and PLC, or one of their own choosing. Built on the foundation of EtherCAT and a real-time 64-bit Windows operating system, KINGSTAR provides a complete “plug-and-play” platform for motion control and machine automation engineering.
TAIROS attendees can visit Booth #K226 throughout the show, or attend the deep-dive seminar on Friday, September 2 from 9:00am-12:00pm in Conference Room 402C, for live demos of several components of the KINGSTAR platform, including:
- KINGSTAR machine vision-controlled motion + PLC + motion card, linked to the cloud with Microsoft Azure and Windows 10 IoT Enterprise
- Uni-Innovate robot arm controller for collaborative robots with force control
- Best practices for Smart Factory, IoT and Industry 4.0 product integration
- How to build your own controller that integrates with standard protocols
“We are excited to share KINGSTAR’s game-changing technology with the Industrial Automation and Robotics community at TAIROS,” said Alex Hung, Vice President Sales APAC. “The IoT and Industry 4.0 future demands a platform approach to robotics that can leverage a single PC to perform multiple deterministic functions, such as motion control, PLC and machine vision, in real-time and in the cloud. KINGSTAR and IntervalZero’s RTX64 delivers on that promise at a fraction of the cost of past solutions without sacrificing precision performance.”
IntervalZero’s customer-centered philosophy combined with more than three decades of embedded software innovation and the proven value of its RTX hard real-time software have enabled the company to build a global customer base of market-leading OEMs and end users in Industrial Automation, Medical Systems, Digital Media, Test & Measurement, Military & Aerospace, and other industries.
IntervalZero is headquartered in Waltham, Massachusetts, USA and also has offices in Taipei, Taiwan, Nice, France and in Munich, Germany. The company is an EtherCAT Technology Group, PLCopen, OPC Foundation, Intel Embedded Alliance and Microsoft Embedded Gold partner and gained Microsoft’s recognition as a leading partner in both North America and EMEA in 2009 – 2012.
