Omron New Machine Automation Controller SYSMAC NJ series
Omron Corporation announces the release of a new machine automation controller on July 29th, 2011:
• Sysmac NJ500 controller: it will consist of 3 CPU models with scalable performance of 16, 32 and 64 axis respectively.
• Sysmac studio SE200D software: programming, configuration and simulation software tool.
The Sysmac NJ series combines the outstanding performance, flexibility and scalability of a PC based architecture with the reliability and robustness of an Omron industrial controller. “We aim at fast and flexible machines with open programming standards and open communication networks without compromising Omron’s high standard of robustness and reliability” stated Shinya Yamasaki, Senior General Manager of Omron Automation Systems Division HQ.
Sysmac Automation Platform
Sysmac is a powerful and robust ONE automation platform with a new machine automation controller - NJ - that integrates motion, sequencing and network, 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. “One machine control through one connection and one software, is the way we define true integration” adds Shinya Yamasaki.
Sysmac NJ series controller
The NJ controller is designed for high speed and flexibility. It incorporates an Intel processor proven for harsh industrial environment with fan-free operation, and runs under a RTOS (Real-Time OS). It is scalable with 16, 32 and 64 axis CPU’s. Response time of less than 1ms can be achieved for applications of up to 32 axis. The NJ series accommodates most of the CJ series I/O and communication units, thus allowing smooth upward scalability of your machine.
Created to give you full control over your automation system, Sysmac studio integrates configuration, programming and monitoring into One Software. Graphics-oriented configuration allows quick set up of controller, field devices and networks while machine and motion programming based on IEC61131-3 standard and PLCopen Functions for Motion Control cuts programming time. A smart editor with On-line debugging helps quick and error free programming. Advanced simulation of sequence and motion control, data logging and data trace reduce machine tuning and set-up. Sysmac studio also offers advanced 3D simulation environment to develop and test off-line motion profiles such as Cams and complex Kinematics. Your intellectual property (IP) can be safely secured thanks to 32 character password. Complete or part of the machine programming, e.g specific function blocks, can be blocked from being uploaded from the controller. “Turning programmers into creators was our guiding philosophy” states Shinya Yamasaki.
Machine network: EtherCAT
EtherCAT is the fastest emerging network for machine automation. It is Omron’s de-facto machine network for its wide range of field and motion devices. It is 100Mbps industrial Ethernet network compliant with IEEE 802.3 frames, capable of handling up to 192 slaves with refresh time down to 100us and less than 1us jitter. It achieves high accuracy for multi-axis synchronization thanks to its distributed slave clock mechanism. It is simple to set-up with automatic address assignment for slaves and cost effective to install since it uses standard shielded Ethernet cables and connectors.
Faithful to our social and global policy, Sysmac meets the global standards such as EC Directives, cULus, Lloyd, and NK and is designed and manufactured with clean and recyclable material.
