Adept Technology Introduces SmartController EX

PLEASANTON, Calif., Oct. 24, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Adept Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:ADEP), a leading provider of intelligent robots and autonomous mobile solutions, introduces its new SmartController EX. This lead-free, high-performance distributed motion controller, designed for use with Adept robots, features Gigabit Ethernet, a high-speed processor and new software, called Adept eV+. With more processing power and faster communication, the new SmartController EX can increase a robot's cycle speeds by up to five percent.

Adept is previewing SmartController EX at Pack Expo booth #S-1454 October 28-31, 2012. SmartController EX with ePLC is available immediately and the full-version SmartController EX will be launched on January 21, 2013 at Automate booth #354.

The Adept SmartController EX features Gigabit Ethernet and a processor that is 10 times more powerful than the previous generation. Four times more memory further enhances performance and the 2GB SD memory card slot adds functionality, allowing users to easily transfer data between controllers, capture log data and back up data to a PC. The controller's Adept eV+ software is completely new, based on modern technology and built around a robust real-time operating system. It is seamlessly backward compatible with V+ code and tightly integrates with Adept's vision-guidance technology for optimal robotic performance.

"The new SmartController EX combines powerful new hardware with entirely new software that benefits from the intellectual property accumulated over Adept's 25 year history as a robotic leader," said John Boutsikaris, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "This new controller will enhance the performance of the robots it controls. It also provides a solid foundation for future advancements."

Adept designed the SmartController EX for use with Cobra s-series SCARA robots, Viper six-axis robots, Quattro parallel robots and Python Linear Modules. It is backward compatible with Adept's CX controller – customers can use the same connectors and code and easily transition.
