Harmonized motor and machine control

High starting torque and torque control capability in open loop mode give you full control of your machine dynamics and performance. Options for all of the major open network systems.

The MX2-V1 delivers 200% starting torque near stand-still (0.5 Hz) and can operate in torque control in open loop mode. This allows the MX2-V1 to be used in applications where closed loop AC vector drives were previously used.

Standard industrial networks, such as EtherCAT, CompoNet or DeviceNet as options. High-speed EtherCAT provides solutions for the entire system from input to output with Sysmac Series.

Built-in RS-485 Modbus communications. OMRON Function Blocks are available for the CP H/L and CJ-series PLCs. Those control the MX2-V1 via Modbus communications easily.

Safety is embedded in the MX2-V1, according to ISO 13849-1, Cat. 3, with two safety inputs and an External Device Monitoring (EDM) output. No external contactors on the motor side are required, meaning simpler wiring for the user.

OMRON to Release 2,512 Models of Its E2E NEXT Series Proximity Sensors, Now Equipped with IoT Features

OMRON Corporation will globally launch in January 2019 a total of 2,512 models of its DC 3-wire E2E NEXT series proximity sensors, which boast the world's longest sensing distances and are now newly equipped with IoT features. These sensors reduce risks of sudden facility stoppages by a factor of 3; they also detect signs that warn of such stoppages and notify users via the network. They help improve facility operation rates by preventing unforeseen facility stoppages and reducing facility downtime.
At actual manufacturing sites, unforeseen facility stoppages are a major management issue, for they directly lead to lost production opportunities. To minimize facility downtime, manufacturers must procure on-site maintenance personnel who can readily address unforeseen facility stoppages. With labor shortages becoming increasingly severe, however, demand is growing for ways to utilize IoT to maintain and improve facility operation rates without relying on human experience or skills.
