Omron’s Sysmac (System for Machine Automation Control) is a powerful and robust automation platform with a new machine automation controller (Sysmac NJ series), that integrates motion, sequencing, networking and machine vision, a new software (Sysmac Studio), that includes configuration, programming, simulation and monitoring and a fast machine network (EtherCAT) to control motion, vision, sensors and actuators.
An immediate benefit of the architecture is the seamless integration of Omron’s core competences within one control platform. Machine control and motion control are now one; field devices are controlled across one machine network and programmed by one software.
The heart of the automation platform, the Sysmac machine automation controller NJ series is designed for high speed and flexibility. It incorporates an Intel processor proven for harsh industrial environments with fan-free operation.
