Sysmac is the latest machine automation platform from Omron with integration throughout: from controller to software.
The guiding principles behind the Sysmac automation platform are:
- One control for the entire machine or production cell
- Harmony between machine and people
- Open communication and open programming standards.
International print system manufacturer Ricoh is set to create links between its UK toner cartridge production and refill operations and a factory-level database, using Omron control technology to allow two-way real-time communications for the first time.
"Sysmac controller provided a flexible platform" - Mike Diskin, Managing Director of Halifax Numerical Controls, UK
Sysmac stands for System for Machine Automation Control and has been a trade name for our Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC’s) since their launch in the early seventies. Since then we have shipped more than 10 million units world-wide. From now on the Sysmac name stands for a complete machine automation platform.
The Sysmac NJ Series is a new class industrial controller, capable of performing like a last generation computer, while retaining the endurance and reliability of an Omron PLC.
EtherCAT is becoming the most popular machine protocol. Why? Unmatched performance, the highest precision and real openness make the difference to other Ethernet industrial protocols.
