When speed counts: EtherCAT I/O

EtherCAT is an extremely fast industrial automation network, which uses standard Ethernet cabling. It makes very efficient use of the standard Ethernet transmission frame, with each node accessing the entire frame on the fly. This reduces the delay in each slave to microsecond level. Its deterministic nature makes EtherCAT extremely suitable for motion control. Omron provides PLC-based as well as stand-alone motion control solutions based on EtherCAT. The GX-series I/O units provide the basic in- and outputs for such systems, including high-speed encoder inputs which can feed position information into the controller.

  • Compact size IP20 housing
  • Expandable digital I/Os
  • Detachable I/O terminal blocks
  • Selectable high-speed input response time

CX-One / CX-One Lite

CX-One Splash_US.jpg
CX-One software allows users to build, configure and program a host of devices such as PLCs, HMIs and motion-control systems and networks using just one software package with one installation and license number. This greatly reduces the complexity of the configuration and allows automation systems to be programmed or configured with minimal training.
