Omron releases programmable multi-axis controllers
February 2018, PLCs, DCSs & Controllers


Omron Corporation has announced the global release of its new CK3E programmable multi-axis controllers and industrial PC platform (PMAC). Omron, together with Delta Tau Data Systems (DT), developed the PMAC controllers based on leading motion control technology from DT. PMAC achieves sophisticated fine-tuning control, including high-speed synchronous control of various factory automation (FA) devices, thanks to built-in EtherCAT connectivity which is used for production lines and equipment all over the world. Its development environment allows users to program their own motion algorithms and motion control functions, such as trajectory calculation and position compensation, in C and original programming languages.

In order to satisfy the diverse consumer needs and deal with short product life cycles, the current trend to aim for innovative manufacturing by leveraging the latest precision machining technologies and robotics at production sites is spreading. Builders of semiconductor manufacturing equipment and machining tools are concentrating resources on development of innovative and competitive core technology. In these circumstances, machine builders are increasingly requiring globally available controllers whose long-term supply stability and quality are guaranteed and which can be used as alternatives to board controllers that are costly to develop basic functions and maintain.

Moreover, manufacturers who develop manufacturing equipment with robots are expecting robust and reliable controllers that can execute customised motion control. Omron offers two types of PMAC programmable multi-axis controllers to meet these demands.

CK3E programmable multi-axis controller:

• Multi-axis control with a fast cycle time and EtherCAT master functionality. Flexible system configuration and high-speed synchronous control of FA devices connected via EtherCAT.

• Compact design (28,6 mm thickness) to save space in machines and control panels.

Industrial PC Platform NY51_A:

• Up to 128 axes of control and advanced data handling. Multi-tasking of Windows applications and customised motion control (motion algorithms, kinematics, position compensation, etc.)

• PLC-level environmental resistance. Hypervisor software for uninterrupted machine control even if Windows is down.
