NJ Machine Automation Controller with SQL Client Functionality

The SQL version of the NJ Machine Automation Controller allows for direct access to SQL databases via the built-in EtherNet/IP port.
  • Ideal for reliable data logging and quality control traceability
  • Insert, Update, and Select to/from SQL databases
  • Supports Oracle and Microsoft SQL database servers
  • No additional software, hardware or middleware required
  • Access up to three databases on three servers from a single NJ controller
  • Automatically logs SQL commands and responses to local SD memory card
  • Local data spooling if connection is lost to SQL database server


Real-Time OS

The NJ-series hardware has been designed to adapt to the quickly changing demands of a machine automation controller. A typical system built around an application specific integrated circuit can be difficult to change and enhance. The NJ series uses the proven Intel® Atom™ processor to allow real-time improvements to the cores of the system. This adaptability virtually guarantees a future-proof system that can lead today's automation technology and trends.

Key Features:

  • Advanced motion features
  • CPU performance
  • Quick response to customer needs
  • Unique application solutions


Accurate and Precise

Because Omron developed every aspect of the control core, run-time is predictable and reliable with no instability caused from third party code. With this advantage, NJ-series functions can be accurately and precisely predicted for real world operation. Features such as CAM profile simulations that provide not only position data, but additionally velocity, acceleration and jerk give a detailed prediction of how the machine motion will actually perform. Only Omron can deliver such a stable and efficient controller, ensuring your application will behave as desired.

Key Features:

  • Logic simulation
  • Motion simulation 
  • Stable operation and reliability
  • Quick and predictable start-up time


Motion and Logic in ONE

With a powerful processor comes multiple systems integrated into one controller. Providing advanced motion control with proven machine logic in one unit gives your machine the ultimate advantage. The NJ-series seamlessly combines two prominent application requirements to reduce hardware and development cost. Handshaking and other intermediate steps needed with multiple systems that create overhead, inefficiency and delay are eliminated while functionality and performance are increased. Sequence control, motion control, and I/O refreshing are all executed in the same control period. This enables precise sequence and motion control in a fixed period with minimal deviation.

Key Features:

  • Increased control
  • Comprehensive motion and logic function set
  • One program for motion and logic


Advanced Hardware Design

Building on Omron's reputation for quality and innovation, the NJ-series is designed to be a solid performer in the class of machine automation controllers. Fan-less operation with efficient heat dissipation eliminates mechanical failure and extends the life of the system. Ports such as Ethernet and USB provide a standard interface for connection and communication. An SD memory card slot integrated in the CPU provides a common media for data storage. Backwards compatibility is provided with most CJ type IO units for easy upgrade and a full range of available and existing unit types.

Key Features:

  • Class leading compact size
  • Front facing connections for efficient panel design
  • Standard feature Ethernet/IP port
  • Standard feature EtherCAT Master port


Proven Technology

Developed from years of experience, the NJ-series combines the newest technology with the stability and performance of yesterday's PLC's. Built upon the knowledge and success of previous controllers, the NJ-series advances with improvements such as task scheduling, error processing, synchronized control and multitasking. The NJ-series system provides the hardware reliability that you expect from a PLC with the flexibility and power of a machine automation controller.


Industry Standards and Global Conformance

Standard IEC 61131-3 based programming languages are supported and motion control instructions that are based on PLCopen standards and an Instruction set (POU's) that follow IEC rules are provided. Hardware compliance with EMC and EC directives ensure your system will operate according to widely accepted regulations. Global standards conformance combined with Omron's extensive worldwide support network allows your machine to comply with a variety of international markets without limitations.

Sysmac Studio
