Since 1971 the Sysmac brand has been used in automation control to convey the Omron principles of reliability, robustness and speed. Today we expand these principles throughout the entire machine.
Fastest Machine Network: To achieve the accuracy and predictability required by today’s complex machines, Omron selected EtherCAT, the fastest machine network. This is not only for motion, but I/O, Safety and Vision. This provides a huge benefit to the customer, simplifying the cabling and delivering astonishing performance.
Intel Architecture: Traditional ASIC based PLCs are efficient performers, but limited in flexibility when requirements change. The Sysmac NJ controller is based on the industrially hardened Intel ATOM processor and Real Time Operating Sysmac (RTOS) allowing for reliable control and fast implementation of new functions or improvements. Performance can easily be scaled to suit the machine, without changing the core design.
The Sysmac Platform encompasses the entire machine, from I/O to enterprise.
Integrating Logic, Motion, Vision, Safety, I/O, Networks, and Enterprise into one controller drastically reduces machine tact time and programming complexity, improving performance and speeding development.

A control system based on products from Omron is helping machine-tool expert Halifax Numerical Controls (HNC) to achieve success in the UK and around the world in the fiercely competitive market for roll grinders for rubber-coated rollers.
Omron Kusatsu factory adopted an easy-to-use solution that enables real-time tracing of a product through all the manufacturing processes, and provides visualization to analyze where improvements can be made.
Automated data logging has become a staple on many manufacturing lines due to its effectiveness in bolstering quality control and traceability. This steady stream of data provides helps companies create a rock solid workflow record that is incredibly valuable in protecting against legal or other problems down the road. Learn more
