A new graphical programming language for Adept products will also be previewed. Additional demonstrations will include Adept's SmartAxis linear modules and Adept sMotion and new Adept s600 and Adept s800 SCARA robots.

The new self-contained Adept SmartServo control architecture for the company's Adept Cobra robot will include a four-channel version of its SmartAmplifier product, used in the company's Adept SmartAxis product line. The Adept SmartServo robot control architecture will run a coordinated motion version of Adept's Micro V+ factory-hardened real-time OS and programming language and will support full PC connectivity via an ActiveX library.
