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

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

November 9, 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:

  • •Multiple robot control per single CPU
  • •Integration of Robotics, Logic, and Motion in one CPU
  • •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.

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
