SAFETY NETWORK CONTROLLER SUPPORTS TWO PROTOCOLS

18-10-2018

New from Omron, the NX Series Safety Network Controller supports both CIP Safety and Safety over EtherCAT (FSoE) protocols enabling system builders to use a single component in the design and manufacture of machinery for application worldwide.

When used in conjunction with Omron’s NX102 Machine Automation Controller both EtherNet/IP + CIP Safety and EtherCAT + FSoE can be used simultaneously. This also helps when building safety systems for large production lines using robots from different vendors. Various models of the safety network controller are available, providing up to 254 CIP Safety connections and real-time safety control of up to 12 motors.

The combination of automatic programming and user-defined function blocks reduces safety control programming time. Together with online functional test and offline simulation, safety management can be easily implemented by inexperienced workers helping to maximise productivity.

Furthermore, the unit features data logging and restore ability to quickly identify the cause of line stoppage and offer easy replacement without use of additional software.
