Proximity Sensor Line Boasts Massive Expansion

(OMRON)

OMRON is set to globally launch 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 equipped with IoT features. Reportedly, these sensors reduce risks of sudden facility stoppages by a factor of three, They also detect signs that warn of such stoppages and notify users via the network.

 

The E2E NEXT Series Proximity Sensors (DC 3-Wire Models) to be newly released are equipped with OMRON's Thermal Distance Control 2 and PROX3 hybrid circuitry technologies, which enable sensing distances that are at least twice if previous models and, resultantly, can reduce risks of such facility stoppages by a factor of three. Distances between sensor bodies and sensing objects are monitored constantly, and users are notified via IO-Link communication if they become great or too small. This allows users to identify warning signs of sudden facility stoppages, which in turn allows for timely maintenance.

In Conversation with Antonio Neri, President & CEO – Hewlett Packard Enterprise & Salil Parekh, CEO – Infosys

Hear the CEOs of Infosys & HPE discuss the current crisis and how it has accelerated the need for digital transformation for their clients. Connectivity at the Edge, right mix of hybrid cloud, ability to extract data faster than ever before… these are just some of the contributions that HPE and Infosys make to our clients’ digital transformation journey.

 

OMRON set forth a concept called "innovative-Automation!" consisting of three innovations or "i's"--"integrated" (control evolution), "intelligent" (development of intelligence by ICT), and "interactive" (new harmonization between humans and machines). OMRON's endeavor is to dramatically improve the productivity and quality on the ground in manufacturing sites. To this end, OMRON will continue to expand its lineup of IoT-enabled control devices, and, with the help of its clients, expedite the "intelligent" element (i.e. making manufacturing smarter) in manufacturing sites, which is key to delivering on the "innovative-Automation!" concept.
