Industrial Automation


NX-Series NX701 CPU Units


Ideal for large-scale, fast, and highly-accurate control with up to 256 axes.

A fully integrated platform

One machine control through one connection and one software is how we define the Sysmac automation platform. The Machine Automation Controller integrates logic, motion, safety, robotics, vision, information, visualization and networking under one software: Sysmac Studio.
This one software provides a true Integrated Development Environment (IDE). The machine controller comes standard with built-in EtherCAT and EtherNet/IP. The two networks with one connection purpose is the perfect match between fast real time machine control and data plant management.

NX701-[][][][] Features 1

One Machine Controller

Complete integration of motion and logic

A large selection of CPU Units for up to 256 axes

Safety integration

Flexible system lets you integrate safety into machine automation through the use of Safety over EtherCAT (FSoE).

One Connection

Integration of machine control and Information

・Built-in EtherCAT and EtherNet/IP™ ports : Global standard networks
・Built-in international standard (IEC 62541) OPC UA communication functionality
   (NX701-1[][][]/NX502-[][][][]/NX102-[][][][]/NJ501-1[]00 CPU Unit)
・Database connection: Logs real-time data from production lines directly into SQL Databases.
   This enables preventive maintenance and quality traceability.

One Software

One integrated development environment software

・Fully conforms with IEC 61131-3 standards
・PLCopen function blocks for motion control
・Packed with Omron’s rich technical know-how. Various software components help reduce programming time.

Advanced machine control and integrated production / machine data management for a variety of applications

Motion Control

Complete integration of motion and logic

One controller integrates logic, motion, vision and information for complete control and management of machines. Position, displacement, and tension information collected from sensors can be quickly and easily fed back to the motion control.

NX701-[][][][] Features 11

Accurate feedback control with less than 1 μs jitter

The NJ/NX controller offers synchronous control of all machine devices, from input through to output. Distributed clock-based clock synchronization incorporated into EtherCAT slaves enables the I/O refresh cycle to be synchronized between units such as the FH Vision System, ZW Displacement Sensor, NX I/O, and G5/1S Servo Drive.

NX701-[][][][] Features 12

Preventive maintenance

Preventive maintenance of EtherCAT sensor

Monitoring the sensor status allows you to maintain before sensors malfunction due to dirt or aged deterioration.* The sensor settings can be saved and loaded, which minimizes downtime when troubles occur.

NX701-[][][][] Features 14

Preventive maintenance of actuator devices

The NJ/NX controller that integrates EtherCAT and motion control can constantly monitor actuator devices with a fast cycle time.
