Epson SCARA T3-401S Robot integration to Camera System
« on: March 20, 2018, 09:51:05 AM »
Hi I'm looking for some help and advice.

I am working on a machine design that will have an EPSON SCARA T3-401S robot for Picking and placing.
The robot will get vision guidance from 2 cameras.
Camera 1 is a fixed position camera, that will tell the Robot the Pick Position (X,Y,Angle) for the Part being picked.
Camera 2 is also a fixed position camera, that will tell the Robot the Place Position (X,Y,Angle for the part being placed onto.

My preferred option is for a Camera Controller that can control Camera 1 & 2 and integrate directly to the Robot.
I am looking into a Keyence CV-X470F to do this. 
Keyence provide a Robotic interface setup in their software. ( This allows the camera to calibrate to the robots co-ordinates and also jog the robot from the camera controller )
Would anyone have a sample program that will run on the Epson Robot  to integrate with the Keyence Camera ?

I am not restricted to camera controller at this stage of the design.  So I could use a Cognex Controller.
I do not have Cognex Integration Notes to the Epson Scara Robot.
Would anyone have notes or sample code to get a direct Integration from the Cognex Controller to the EPSON T3-401S.

My second preferred option is to integrate the Robot and Camera Controller through an Allen Bradley PLC.
I have the PLC Integration Notes from Keyence & Cognex to do this.
I do not have the EPSON integration notes to the Allen Bradley PLC. Would anyone have some help on the Epson integration to the PLC

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you Fabien,

I didn't realise that Epson could provide an integrated vision guided solution.
It would be a neat solution.
Have you experience of using it ?   Is it easy to setup ?
Regards
