KYOTO, Japan --- On October 3, 2016, OMRON Corp. will introduce a total of 15,583 models, in seven categories as the second wave of factory automation (FA) control devices built on a common design platform for unified product specifications.
Based on a wide range of products, OMRON has been continuing to work for the innovation of making control panels which house and control FA devices on the production front line. OMRON unified the design and size of FA devices, and introduced products in April 2016 which are built with the company's proprietary wiring technology "Push-In Plus Terminal Block" for device and control panel makers in need of "downsizing and space-saving" of FA devices and control panels, "expedited delivery," and "response to globalization."
They have been adopted on the front line of manufacturing by more than 3,000 global companies and received high evaluation. The expansion of the FA devices built on the unified design platform will have a great combined effect achieved by providing a wide variety of devices. OMRON aims at innovating control panels for customers.
In particular, we applied the common platform to A22N-P/A30N-P Pushbutton Switches, M22N-P Indicators, and KM-N3 Power Monitors which are FA devices mounted on the front of control panels, P7SA-PU Sockets for Relays with Forcibly Guided Contacts and NX1P Machine Automation Controllers which are safety components. Also, the 240-/480-W models of S8VK-S, the world's smallest class of Switch Mode Power Supplies, are made under the common platform as well.
OMRON is working on the innovation of manufacturing on the front line of production by the "3-i" automation in the "integrated," "intelligent" and "interactive" spheres. OMRON currently has the most comprehensive automation product portfolio in the world that spans the spectrum of ILO+S (input, logic, output+safety) and robotics, providing the foundation for the innovation of manufacturing by the "3-i" automation.
With a wide range of FA devices with the unified design platform, OMRON will continue to work with manufacturers for the innovation of manufacturing by meeting a variety of challenges in manufacturing control panels.
