Denso Robotics new b-CAP Ethernet TCP/IP option gives users direct control of a Denso robot and peripheral devices by means of a PC, PLC or other control device, whose familiar interfaces and common programming languages result in reduced development time and cost.

In addition to a PC or PLC, b-CAP enables the robot to be controlled by any other device that supports Ethernet TCP/IP, such as a vision system, smart phone, etc. This extends the range of automation-system design possibilities.
"Our company's philosophy is to constantly make improvements," said Peter Cavallo, robotics sales manager, Denso Sales California. "Our new b-CAP feature is the latest in a long series of such improvements, with the goal of making things easier for our customers and reducing their costs." Robotics: Software trial could help engineers build skills.

Denso Robotics offers a complete line of robots, controllers and software. More than 17,000 Denso small assembly robots are designed and used in its own manufacturing facilities, and more than 42,000 Denso robots are used in other companies. covering a wide range of applications.
