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

A World Without Downtime

Utopias are common in fiction, from Plato’s The Republic to The Federation in Star Trek. For manufacturers, a world without unplanned downtime would be the perfect utopia. The question is, is abolishing unplanned downtime a far-fetched dream, or is it closer than we think? Here, Jonathan Wilkins, marketing director of obsolete industrial equipment supplier, EU Automation shares his vision for a downtime free age.

According to research by Oneserve, machine downtime is costing British manufacturers over £180 billion a year. Unplanned downtime halts production, but can also lead to wasted raw materials or damage to the system itself – amplifying the cost beyond loss of production. Further research conducted by GE Digital found that 70 per cent of companies lack full awareness of when equipment is due for maintenance, upgrade or repair..

Rockwell Automation HMI Improving Operator Efficiency Rockwell Automation has updated its HMI software to equip industrial workers with better information to run and maintain their systems. New features in the FactoryTalk View software version 10.0 include greater access to information, new mobile device support and better cross-software integration to improve productivity. Operators can now use the TrendPro tool in FactoryTalk View Site Edition (SE) software to overlay alarm information on trend data. This feature can help them connect alarm occurrences with data-point values to speed up troubleshooting. They can also use the tool to save and share ad hoc trends with other workers.
