We have expanded our offering of Sysmac Machine Automation Controllers that directly connect to SQL databases to include the high performance NX701 SQL Client models. In addition to database connectivity, these models can support coordinated motion control for 256 axes.

They can be used with a variety of SQL databases without special software or middleware. In addition to automation and motion control, they are used to perform data logging tasks and replace complex SCADA or gateway systems. With the addition of NX701 SQL client CPUs, Omron has simplified the startup of big data utilization and IIoT introduction into manufacturing processes of varied scales. The NX701 SQL Client CPUs can be installed on existing equipment as well as new machine builds.

By connecting directly to the database, users can accelerate leveraging real time data for productivity improvement, predictive maintenance and quality traceability at production sites. This data collection capability at the controller level gives users accurate information to share throughout the enterprise and supports future development of their IIoT control system. The NX701 SQL Client CPUs are designed to address the most advanced industrial controller applications in a wide variety of industries including Automotive, Semiconductor, Infrastructure, and Food and Beverage Packaging.

The NX701 SQL Client CPUs support Oracle, SQL Server, DB2, MySQL and Firebird to design a process control system with database tools familiar to the user, shortening the commissioning time and operator learning curve. One key benefit of using this CPU is that users are not required to have SQL programming knowledge to construct a system. Programming using ladder language, which is widely used at production sites, is sufficient.

Key benefits include:

  • Eliminate PC points of failures on the line, reducing downtime risk
  • Minimize IT maintenance cost of middleware and PCs
  • Machine performance unaffected by IT data gathering
  • Offline programming by OEM with online connection and database testing
  • “Spool” data locally at the controller in case of communication failure
  • Function Block (FB) programming in Ladder or Structured Text (ST) using Sysmac Studio software with no SQL code knowledge required
