General Description

The Vision 1000 is ideal for small to mid size gantries, cantilever machines, duct cutters, and low-end WaterJet machines. It provides a graphical user interface on a PC based system that is as reliable as it is simple. On screen graphics put this control way ahead of competitive low-cost systems, and hardware features like the 8-position joystick, hand-wheel, and speed potentiometer make it easier to operate by putting the necessary controls at your fingertips.

The Vision 1000 also has many advanced features not found in any competitors controls, such as multi-tasking, program parking, plate alignment, program graphics with real-time display of running point, integrated station control and process control, and support for ESAB’s exclusive Serial I/O Bus technology.
