Omron’s New Integrated Controller Capable of Controlling Robots and Entire Automation Systems

DCS Omrons New Integrated Controller Capable of Controlling Robots and Entire Automation Systems 1 400x275

Novembe 14, 2022

 

Omron has recently introduced its most full-featured machine automation controller to date. Offering control of multiple robots, the choice of 16, 32, or 64 controlled motion axes, and SQL connectivity. It is the ideal control solution for complete robotic cells, high-speed motion systems, material handling and multi-robot systems.

The Robotics Integrated Platform is the next revolutionary step in the SYSMAC ecosystem that seamlessly integrates the full Omron Fixed Robotics product line. Their one controller approach integrates robot control, in addition to sequence and motion control, to a single controller. This enables synchronized control of robots as well as other devices and results in higher performance compared to typical network based configurations. It also enables users to collect information on devices aligned to a common timeline which not only improves overall system response times and accuracy but also greatly aids in troubleshooting activities.

Key Benefits

Faster solution evaluation

  • •Early ROI calculation and design validations thanks to simulation software
  • •Changeover improvements of future products can be validated by simulation.
  • •Investment cost can be calculated in advance.
  • •Cycle time estimation

Lower commissioning time

  • •Reduced integration time with programming off-line.
  • •Optional “Applicaton Manager” add-in software reduces integration time and learning curve.
  • •Reduced mechanical and electrical design burden by emulating full cells through the Sysmac Platform.

Lower cost of ownership

  • •Real time synchronization between robot, PLC and all EtherCAT connected devices improve productivity.
  • •Recipe manager makes modifications easy and minimize the product change over time.

Key Features:

  • •Conforms to IEC 61131-3 (JIS B 3503) standard programming and PLCopen function blocks for motion control
  • •Conforms to IEC 61131-3 (JIS B 3503) standard programming and traditional V+ scripting for robot and motion control
  • •Programming with variables allows users to create complex programs efficiently
  • •Models with SQL DB Functionality
  • •Offers speed without compromising on reliability and robustness expected from PLCs.
  • •Linear and circular interpolation.
  • •Electronic gear and cam synchronization.
  • •Fast and accurate control by synchronizing all EtherCAT devices, such as vision, servos, robots, and IO with the controller.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
