Omron released new machine automation controllers, the NX701 and NJ101, to further expand its Sysmac automation platform. The NX701 and NJ101 enable a wide range of solutions from production systems to link to simple machines to be provided.

Sysmac offers an innovative manufacturing environment by creating a variety of application functionalities with software and connecting Omron and third party factory automation hardware and design tools such as 3D simulator.

The NX701 is the flagship model that offers speed without compromising on the traditional reliability and robustness, providing fast processing speed thanks to the Intel (R) Core (TM) i7 quad-core processor and the large memory capacity. Focusing on the future of sophisticated production sites using Internet of Things (IoT), Omron developed this integrated controller that provides users with scalability beyond the framework of previous controllers such as PLC.

The entry model NJ101 with a simple hardware performance enables application functionalities and solutions of Sysmac to be adopted in existing production equipment and general systems.

Omron is committing to developing Sysmac and other latest FA devices and enhancing its service and engineering support that manufacturers require.

Omron has offered application engines including database connectivity and robotics and expanded the line-up of peripheral devices such as high-speed I/O units, drive, safety components, and vision sensors since the release of NJ501 in 2011. Machine builders embarking on new manufacturing all over the world use Sysmac with enhanced application libraries for temperature control and vibration suppression control and the capability to create OMRON's unique solutions.

This release of new machine automation controllers and peripheral devices enables Sysmac to be adopted at every production site. Leveraging the benefits of Sysmac, OMRON creates the latest solutions through the Sensing and Control technology, accumulated know-how and knowledge, and collaboration with third parties to keep innovating manufacturing together with manufacturers.

Omron's latest integrated automation platform provides complete control and management of automation plant under one software. Programming based on global standards and global open networks allows for building the globally standardised system.

At the core of this platform, the Machine Controller series offers synchronous control of all machine devices and advanced functionality such as motion, robotics and database connectivity. This multi-disciplinary concept allows customers to simplify solution architecture, reduce programming and optimise productivity.
