NX-Series Database Connection CPU Units


The Controller can be directly connected to a database. No special Unit, software, nor middleware is required.

Easy data collection for Productivity Improvement

Visualized quality and productivity

Operating status can be displayed in real time using familiar software such as Microsoft® Excel.

No SQL knowledge required

The CPU Unit can directly access databases without a separate computer.
Function Blocks allow PLC engineers to easily use the CPU Unit.

NX701-1[]20 Features 3

Supported database

• Microsoft SQL server
• Oracle Database
• PostgreSQL
• Firebird

Fast data collection for Predictive Maintenance

Real-time data collection

Data is sampled every millisecond and written to the database. Machine behavior can be monitored more accurately.

NX701-1[]20 Features 6

Reliable data for Quality Traceability

Realize quality traceability

Data, such as production conditions, production results, and inspection results, can be managed at the individual product level.

Saving data and images together

The process data is linked to inspection images and saved together with the images.
This improves the level of quality management.

Reliable data transfer

Direct access and spooling enable the CPU Unit to efficiently and reliably transfer all collected data to databases.

NX701-1[]20 Features 10

Perfect match between real-time machine control and fast information control

New NX701 data collection model

The newly developed NX701 Database Connection CPU Unit controls up to 256 axes with a cycle time of 0.125 ms while collecting data every 10 ms*.
This CPU Unit can collect data at the individual product level, enabling quality traceability.
