The Series 2000 Modular Console System: Infinite Variety From Standard Elements

The Series 2000 Console Range from Hammond Manufacturing which enables complex control desks to be created from standard parts is now available in both RAL7035 light grey and stainless steel. The system allows units to be stacked in multiple combinations to provide equipment support and display functions exactly where they are required. The system is so versatile that the range of applications that can be served from the standard components and accessories is virtually unlimited.

Systems are available in four standard widths: 24 inch (600mm), 36 inch (900mm), 48 inch (1200mm) and 60 inch (1800mm). There are three primary components. (1), the base unit, available with either single or dual access, (2) the desk unit with internal access via a lift-up sloping surface, and (3) the turret unit with angled front face and front/rear access. A stand-alone consolet unit with an integral sloping top is also available. Once the basic structure has been designed, external options such as plinths…

OMRON Adds Secure RFID Protocol to V750 Series UHF RFID Reader/Writer

OMRON Corporation (TOKYO: 6645, ADR: OMRNY) today announced that, in cooperation with Hitachi, Ltd., it has achieved compatibility between its V750 series UHF RFID reader/writer and Secure RFID Protocol. Additional security functions provided by the protocol will be available as an option beginning in July 2008.

Secure RFID Protocol was developed through the Secure Electronic Tag Project led by Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), with Hitachi as a core partner, from August 2006 to March 2007. The protocol provides enhanced security functions including communication distance control, which restricts the communication range of tags, and reading prohibition, which limits access to tags through password authentication, while maintaining compatibility with the UHF RFID international standard ISO/IEC 18000-6 Type C. A Secure RFID Protocol-ready IC developed by Hitachi, “ยต-Chip(mu-chip) Hibiki,” is already on the market.

RFID in the UHF band (860MHz to 960MHz) realizes lon…

OMRON Releases New Products in SYSMAC CJ Series of Programmable Controllers

OMRON Corporation (TOKYO: 6645, ADR: OMRNY) today announced the release of two new products in its SYSMAC CJ2 series of programmable controllers, CJ2 CPU units and basic I/O units, to markets. Model numbers are as follows. CJ2H CPU units: CJ2H-CPU68, CJ2H-CPU67, CJ2H-CPU66, CJ2H-CPU65 and CJ2H-CPU64. Basic I/O units: CJ1W-ID212, CJ1W-ID233, CJ1W-OD213 and CJ1W-OD234. OMRON's industrial automation business (OMRON IA) developed the SYSMAC CJ series to meet customer demand for high-speed programmable controllers, which has increased as manufacturing industry equipment becomes more complicated and the work of fabrication more minute.

In developing the CJ2H CPU units released today, OMRON IA reexamined not only the CPU's processing power but also the interface with the units to be connected, offering customers total improvement of system throughput. In addition, the company plans to release a succession of high-speed, high-performance units including analog and positioning units…

OMRON Releases New Products in SYSMAC CP Series of Micro Programmable Controllers

In recent years, there has been increased demand for more advanced functionality, even in micro PLCs with approximately 10 to 200 I/O points for use in small-scale control applications. Since 2006, CPU units for advanced micro PLCs, the CP1H CPU units and CP1L CPU units, have been added to the CP series. OMRON Corporation (TOKYO: 6645, ADR: OMRNY) today announced the release of CP1E CPU units, the latest addition to its SYSMAC CP series of micro programmable controllers. Sales of the new CPU units, which were developed around the concept of "economy, efficiency and ease of use," will begin in April. (Please contact your local representative for availability.) There are also many manufacturers that give greater priority to cost efficiency and want to achieve the same functionality while reducing materials costs. This represents a major demand for price reduction. The CP1E CPU units released today can be used to build low-cost micro PLCs that respond to these demands. Manufac…

OMRON Releases Vision Sensor Software for Glue Bead Inspection

OMRON Corporation (TOKYO: 6645, ADR: OMRNY) today released vision sensor software for glue bead inspection (models FZ3-UGI and FZ3-UGIH) to global markets. In recent years, the development of electric and hybrid vehicles in the automobile industry has been gathering steam to reduce carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions in order to implement measures for preventing global warming inspired by the Kyoto Protocol. These vehicles are equipped with many electric devices such as motors, batteries, and transformers. A sealing method using a high sealing quality liquid gasket has been widely used in the automobile industry to secure dustproof and waterproof properties.

However, for electric devices, a much higher sealing performance is required to secure airproof properties to lessen the dangers inherent in such devices. Although OMRON has been proposing solutions for the glue inspection of liquid gaskets used in engines and transmissions, in order to meet the needs of more highly accu…

HARTING PushPull: Proven Camera Termination Technology for Indoors and Out
