Motion Control

Robotics

One of several robotic technologies available from Omron, Omron’s delta robots have been integrated into automotive manufacturing applications here in North America as well as for other high speed packaging and pick and place applications.

Motion Control

The Omron NX7 is the highest performance Sysmac CPU, designed to address the most demanding industrial control and motion applications, laying the infrastructure for Big Data support with improved integration time, system flexibility, and best overall performance.

  • Built-in 128 or 256 axes of Motion
  • Minimum cycle time of 0.125ms
  • Advanced dual-core motion control capabilities
  • Built-in EtherNet/IP (x2) & EtherCAT network interfaces
  • Dual 1Gb EtherNet/IP interfaces for network separation
  • Configured, programmed, and commissioned using Sysmac Studio software

Servo Drives and Motors

Omron servo motors and drives are available up to 15Kw, 3000 rpm (continuous). Consult with MCC for applications which exceed those ratings, as several options are available. These servos are typically networked via EtherCAT, Mechatrolink or are analog/pulse and direction. Safety, real time auto tune and other advanced tuning algorithms ease the commissioning burden. For simple systems, SmartStep II servo amps mimic stepper motor controls and can even be controlled from several models of the CP1 brick PLCs, keeping control costs down for smaller machines.

Variable Frequency Drives

VFD’s up to 1500HP are available. The line-up includes vector drives, encoderless vector, and Volts per Hertz drives all of which communicate via Modbus, and most of which offer additional fieldbus connectivity including EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP, Mechatrolink, Devicenet, Componet, or Profibus. Various drive packaging options are available, including MCC’s Drive-In-a-Box program.
