January 12, 2012 - EPSON Robots introduces version 5.4 of EPSON RC+ 5.0, a development environment now featuring the EPSON RC+ Simulator.


The latest version of the software now provides simulation and offline programming features that enable customers to create, design and run their SPEL+ programs at their desks. With EPSON RC+ version 5.4 users can begin developing and programming a functional robotic system prior to setting up equipment which is a great saving of valuable time.

The 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.

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
