logic, motion, vision and networks using their new software, Sysmac Studio.
Programmable Logic Controllers - Omron offers smart remote I/Os, compact CP1 PLCs, the
high-performance modular CJ2, and the backplane-based CS1 series for large applications. All Omron PLCs
are programmed and commissioned via CX-Programmer, a part of Omron's CX-One automation suite.
Remote I/O - Omron offers open networks such as Ethernet/IP, EtherCAT, DeviceNET, and
PROFIBUS-DP that allow easy integration in existing installations and ensure compatibility with third
party systems. In addition, Omron offers Compobus/S, Omron's proprietary sensor/actuator bus, for cost
efficient, fast and program-less configuration.
Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) - Omron's range includes the NS Series scalable HMI,
the NB Series compact touch screens, the NV Series Micro-HMI, and the NT function-key type displays.
Software - Omron's software solutions reduce complexity by providing an integrated
environment, with single install and lifetime online upgrades, enabling users to design a complete
multi-discipline modular automation system.
Motion & Drives
Omron's Motion & Drives offering includes Sysmac machine automation controllers (described above), motion
controllers, servo motors and inverters ideal for positioning, speed and torque controls in various automation
Motion Controllers - Omron motion controllers offer programming simplicity without
compromising on system performance from 1 to 256 axes.
Servo Systems - Omron's range of servo systems are unique in offering the highest
performance in the most compact size.
Variable Frequency Drives - Developed to harmonize motor and machine control, Omron's
frequency inverters provide precise operation for fast cyclic operations and torque control capability
in open and closed loop configuration.
OMRON Sensing Components detect, measure, analyze, and process various changes that occur on production
sites, such as changes in position, length, height, displacement, and appearance. They also contribute
to predicting and preventing future events. Their vast product range includes:
Fiber Optic Sensors
Vision Sensors and Systems
Auto Identification Systems (RFID)
Today, forward thinking manufacturers clearly realize the new role of increased safety on the factory
floor. Omron STI is a combination of STI safety knowledge and Omron global automation experience-focuses
on making safety work for you. Omron's safety products include:
Omron STI provides safety light curtains to solve your optical guarding needs. From compact models designed
for machine locations where space is tight, to larger, robust light curtains powerful enough to guard large
perimeters, Omron STI offers you a choice:
Multiple built in functionality
Floating; Blanking; Muting
Individual Beam indicators
Short to long spans
Safety Laser Scanners
World's most: compact size (104.5 mm height), power efficient (5 W) and light weight (1.3 kg)
Range: up to 3 m for safety zone and 10 m for warning zones
70 sets of safety zone and warning zone combinations
Configuration memory block, no need to reprogram after sensor replacement, minimal down time
Easy-to-use software tool simplifies creation of complex zone combinations
NE1A Safety Network Controllers and Monitoring Relays
Control reliability is mandated in U.S. standards for safety implemented circuits. These criteria can be
met by using redundant safety-rated device outputs in conjunction with a safety relay. Safety relays
range in function from stop motion detection to 2-hand palm button control, to dual channel input units
with time-delayed outputs that provide conformity to ANSI B11.19, Section 5.1. All safety relays carry
the CE mark and are UL and C-UL listed.
Safety Network Controllers
NE1A Safety Network Controller can be used 3-ways: as a stand-alone controller; as an expandable safety
network with remote I/O blocks; or combined with an existing DeviceNet network to form a Safety + Control
Network. Eliminate long runs of complicated wiring during installation. This system replaces wiring with a
network between safety components distributed over many different locations. Programmable safety function
blocks eliminate rewiring to make modifications. Safety I/O Terminals can be added to increase safety
I/O capacity for distributed allocation through the network.
Safety Interlock Switches
Omron STI safety switches are designed to work together with hinged, sliding, or lift-off guards and barriers.
When the guard is opened, the power supply to the machine is disconnected.
Several contact arrangements.
Heavy-duty housing for demanding industrial applications.
Optional E-stop provides emergency stopping at the extreme end of the installation.
Safety lock mechanism prevents operating errors.
A4EG Enabling Grip Switches
Enabling Grip Switch with distinct feel for three easily discernible positions
The difficult task of configuring safety circuits is now easily achieved by combining the A4EG with the G9SX-GS.
In addition to the standard models, the lineup also includes models with an emergency stop switch and models with a momentary operation switch
An optional Holding Key (sold separately) provides a versatile method for selecting modes.
Equipped with conduit connector.
Safety Contact Strips and Safety Bumpers
The safety edge or safety bumper are flexible strips which can be fixed to the edge of a moving part such as
a machine table or powered door where there is a risk of a crushing or shearing hazard. If the moving part
that includes the safety edge or bumper strikes operator (or vice versa) the flexible safety edge is depressed
and will send a signal to the power source to stop.
Quick Disconnect Universal Safety Mats
Rugged Omron STI Universal Safety Mats guard machine operators against some of the potential hazards and dangers
of the modern manufacturing environment. An Omron STI Universal Safety Mat system (UM series safety mat
combined with an MC3, MC4, or MC6) offers a simple method for guarding personnel around hazardous machines.
A safety mat system offers freedom, flexibility, and reduced operator fatigue when compared with traditional
guarding methods. Full visibility of and access to the work area is maintained.
