?The new EPSON Smart Cameras are the latest component of our High Performance at a Value Price initiative that started with the introduction of the EPSON Micro PowerDrive Controller last year? stated Michael Ferrara, Director of EPSON Robots. ?EPSON?s goal is to continue breaking down barriers to applications that may have been cost prohibitive in the past. Vision Guidance applications can now be implemented at greatly reduced prices, thus providing more automation opportunities for new applications and entry to new industries.?

EPSON?s Vision Guide product is well known in the industry for ease of use and powerful vision guidance features. The EPSON Smart Cameras incorporate the Vision Guide engine thus providing the same interface that EPSON customers have come to know and love. Available in both fixed and mobile camera versions, the EPSON Smart Cameras work with all robots supported by the EPSON Micro PowerDrive Controller.
