Adept Technology Introduces ePLC Connect Enabling Rockwell PLC-Based Robot Programming.

Ethernet/IP Connectivity Simplifies Robot Installation and Support for PLC Centric Customers

LIVERMORE, Calif. -- Adept Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADEP), the leading provider of intelligent vision-guided robotics and global robotics services, today introduced Adept ePLC Connect[TM], a PLC interface enabling the entire Adept product line of SCARA, Articulated, Cartesian and Parallel robots to be programmed using Rockwell PLC-based robot programming language.

The Adept ePLC Connect provides a network for robots using Ethernet/IP connectivity. By eliminating the need to learn a new programming language, the ePLC Connect simplifies the installation and support of the robots, and maximizes the existing automation investment.

"Adept's PLC controlled line of robots has been well received in North America due to the popularity and acceptance of Rockwell's RSLogix[R] software environment," said John Dulchinos, president and COO of Adept Technology. "Adept ePLC Connect gives PLC customers a familiar software environment to develop their applications, simplifying integration and lowering total overall costs.

Adept ePLC Connect is being displayed in Adept's booth at the Assembly technology Expo in Rosemont, IL from September 25-27, 2007 by HPC Automation (Booth #706).
