Adept Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:ADEP), a leading provider of intelligent robots and autonomous mobile solutions and services, today introduced the Adept Viper™ s1700D, a high-performance 6-axis robot. Featuring new motors that are faster and more efficient, the Viper s1700D delivers higher speed motion and increased productivity.

This robot offers advanced self-diagnostics for proactive monitoring and quick troubleshooting.

The s1700D robot features Adept ACE™ software, which deploys the robot through a user-friendly interface.  The Ethernet TCP/IP capability allows the robot to be controlled through a PC, PLC, or controller.
