Our mobile robots are fully autonomous intelligent vehicles that increase throughput, reduce machine dwell time, eliminate errors, improve material traceability, and allow employees to focus on tasks that require complex human skills.
With our "integrated", "intelligent" and "interactive" concepts, we bring innovation to manufacturing sites through automation. The Industrial PC Platform (IPC) is a new control platform that delivers "integrated" and "intelligent" automation to production sites and equipment around the world. We are working on manufacturing innovation with manufacturers by developing our unique automation using a wide range of FA product lineup, including PLC and IPC, and open industrial networks such as EtherCAT.
The NX1 is the entry level controller for our Sysmac automation platform which integrates EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT connectivity, motion control, and I/O in a compact package, bringing advanced motion and sequence control to small-middle size machines.
At the beginning of October, we will introduce several new products among Switching Mode Power Supplies, Safety Relay sockets, Pushbutton Switches, Power Monitors & Machine Automation Controllers, as the second wave of factory automation (FA) control devices built on a common design platform for unified product specifications.
With our new E3S-DC colour mark sensors and E3NX-CA colour-sensing fibre-optic amplifiers, stable and reliable detection of colour marks on the increasingly diverse range of packaging materials used in the food and beverage industries can now be easily achieved.
With the addition of a new bus coupler, the NX-series modular I/O system can now be used on all CJ- and CS-series PLC's, as well as any other controller supporting EtherNet/IP communication. EtherNet/IP uses CIP™ messaging over standard Ethernet infrastructure, providing proven and reliable industrial data communication without having to use special network technologies.
We are now offering a comprehensive range of compact control components that have been developed specifically to save space in control panels. The compact components are a major aid to delivering control system flexibility as, when they are used, it is much easier to make provision within the panel for future modifications and additions.
The BU_2RWL series is the best possible AC-AC online uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to provide your industrial equipment, embedded applications or complete system against instantaneous voltage drops or power interruptions.
Introducing the S8BA series, a DIN-rail mountable, DC-DC uninterruptible power supply (UPS) that is the ideal countermeasure to protect industrial PCs (IPCs) and factory automation controllers from momentary voltage drops and power failures.
After the huge investments sustained in the past years in Europe to build up new PV plants, the cumulated installation reached today the remarkable result of 81.4 GW counting for the 58% of the installations worldwide. (source: EPIA report 2014)
The analog I/O range for the CP1 series in the compact PLC range has been expanded with six new units. These contain both input and output units, mixed analog I/O units, and temperature sensor units.
We have recently announced we are extending our collaboration with leading CAE software provider EPLAN and, as a result, 5,000 macros related to our products are now available via the EPLAN data portal. Panel builders and other users of Omron automation can now download all the essential product data. This saves engineering time and effort during the design stages, reduces errors and helps improve the overall project quality.
We have introduced our new NJ1 and NX7 machine controllers. This further expands the range of Machine Automation Controllers that are at the heart of the Sysmac Automation Platform (hereinafter "Sysmac"). The release of NJ1 and NX7 enables a wide range of automation solutions from cutting-edge, advanced production systems to simple machines.
Featuring readily accessible screwless terminals that cut installation time by more than 50% and ultra-slim construction, three different models of the our new G9SE safety relay are available to meet all safety application requirements. These models provide options for various safety output configurations and for adjustable off-delay times. All are compatible with a variety of safety devices such as E-stops, door switches and opto sensors.
Drawing on more than 50 years of experience in manufacturing monitoring relays, the compact K8 series continues the long tradition in providing reliable machine protection and safeguarding. This popular product range has been completed by adding six new models for three-phase monitoring. These additions to the range mean that now, virtually all machine monitoring functions can be conveniently implemented with the same range of products, with the added benefit that all of the products comply with global safety standards.
The new NX-Safety stand-alone system is a powerful, modular and easily commissioned safety controller which, due to its scalability, can be efficiently adapted to the requirements of a wide variety of safety applications. The expandable design provides a highly scalable solution, from a compact system with containing just a few I/O’s, through to a very large application which requires up to 256 I/O points.
