OMRON Sysmac

One complete machine automation solution integrates logic, motion, vision, safety, robotics, sensing, and enterprise.
The Sysmac family of products continues to grow, while remaining true to its roots as one controller, with one connection, programmed using one software.

EtherCAT Machine Network

EtherCAT is the fastest industrial network for machine automation, connecting to I/O, servos, inverters, vision and smart sensors. It is Ethernet-based, fast, deterministic and highly efficient in terms of data transmission. All EtherCAT slave devices have dual ports, enabling line topology without extra hardware like switches, hubs, or routers.

  • High synchronisation accuracy using a distributed clock mechanism.
  • Fastest in class network on the market with 100 μs refresh time and less than 1 μs jitter
  • Easy setup with automatic address assignment for nodes
  • Standard Ethernet cables and connectors
  • FSoE - FailSafe over EtherCAT

Sysmac Studio for Machine Creators

The Sysmac Studio software suite programs and configures all Sysmac related hardware, including the NX/NJ Machine Automation Controller (MAC), G5 Servos, MX2 and RX Inverters, FQ-M Vision, NX I/O, NX Safety Controller, N-Smart sensors, and NA HMI.

The Sysmac Studio Integrated Development Environment (IDE) provides a single interface for configuration, programming, simulation, and commissioning, all with a common variable database. This environment allows machine creators direct access to all elements of their system, eliminating all traditional data synchronization bottlenecks between control disciplines during development. This IDE also boasts unique features such as built-in 3D Simulation and Vision Sensor setup options, critical in cutting programming and debug time.
