PMAC achieves sophisticated fine-tuning control, including high-speed synchronous control of various factory automation (FA) devices, thanks to built-in EtherCAT connectivity
OMRON and OMRON's Delta Tau Data Systems, Inc. (hereinafter "DT") worked together to develop the PMAC controllers with global leading motion control technology from DT. PMAC achieves sophisticated fine-tuning control, including high-speed synchronous control of various factory automation (FA) devices, thanks to built-in EtherCAT connectivity which is used for production lines and equipment all over the world. Its development environment allows users to program their own motion algorithms and motion control functions, such as trajectory calculation and position compensation, in C and original programming languages.
In order to satisfy the diverse consumer needs and deal with short product life cycles, the current trend to aim for innovative manufacturing by leveraging the latest precision machining technologies and robotics at production sites is spreading. Builders of semiconductor manufacturing equipment and machining tools are concentrating resources on development of innovative and competitive core technology. In these circumstances, machine builders are increasingly requiring globally available controllers whose long-term supply stability and quality are guaranteed and which can be used as alternatives to board controllers that are costly to develop basic functions and maintain. Moreover, manufacturers who develop manufacturing equipment with robots are expecting robust and reliable controllers that can execute customized motion control, mainly in emerging countries. We offer two types of PMAC programmable multi-axis controllers that meet user needs.
We bring innovation to manufacturing sites through automation with integrated, intelligent and interactive concepts. We are working on manufacturing innovation with manufacturers by combining global leading DT's motion control technologies with our control technologies to realize new integrated automation.
