Omron Scientific TechnologiesNX series safety controllers
Controller uses single network, connection and software for integrated automation and safety
NX series safety controllers by Omron Automation and Safety combine automation and safety on the same EtherCAT network in a mixed input/output (I/O) backplane for machine design flexibility and to minimize wiring costs.
A single, intuitive software programming environment reduces machine and safety setup time, while an auto configuration restart function eliminates the need for tools or software to exchange I/O hardware. By using the open protocol Safety over EtherCAT (FSoE) to define a safety layer for EtherCAT, the controller and I/O hardware can be freely placed in the network.
With this integrated system, machine builders can focus attention on improving machine performance and safety rather than system configuration. The controllers are ideal for use with automotive robotic work cells, flexible packaging machines and material handling work cells with multiple access points.
