Sysmac automation platform expands scalability

17 April, 2012

Following the European Sysmac platform launch at the SPS/IPC/Drives Fair in November 2011, Omron Industrial Automation further expands the Sysmac line up of machine automation controllers with the release of the new NJ3 series. The new controllers consist of two CPUs, 4 and 8 axes, therefore offering full compatibility and scalability from 4 to 64 axes.
The NJ3 is fully compatible the with NJ5 machine automation controllers, using the same programming and configuration tool - Sysmac Studio - and the same built-in networks - EtherCAT for machine control and EtherNet/IP for factory automation. Like the NJ5, the NJ3 uses the latest embedded processors from the Intel Corporation taking full advantage of the Sysmac automation platform architecture.
This expansion of the Sysmac family is part of Omron's ongoing commitment to meet advanced machine automation needs by offering a consistent solution from a low number of axes right up to the largest machines. In addition it also smartly addresses modular machine construction.
