NSJ Series

Programmable Controllers

NSJ Series

Contributes to the miniaturization and standardization of the operation unit's control panel

A Wide Selection of Scalable Display Controllers

(Product Line-up) Select the optimal control and display combination.

Four screen sizes are available, from 5.7 to 12.1 inches.

NSJ Series Features 2

(NSJ Built-in Ethernet Port) Easy access to both Display Section and Controller Section

This allows PLC data to be read or written without adding an Ethernet Unit. PLC data can also be read or written, and alarms and recipes can be transferred, from a host computer.

NSJ Series Features 3

Easy Access from a Host Computer

• Screen data and ladder programs can be easily transferred via Ethernet.
• PLC data can also be read by a host application (using FINS communications).

NSJ Series Features 4

Easy Access to Other PLCs

• PLC2 data can be easily displayed and set from the NSJ (PLC1) display.

NSJ Series Features 6

Note: It is also easy to allocate data from another host device for reference.

(Expansion Units) Support a wider range of applications.

Controller Link Unit (NSJW-CLK21-V1)
High-speed, large-capacity data link

The PLC data link function can be used to provide a high-speed, large-capacity data link between Controllers.

NSJ Series Features 8

I/O Control Unit (NSJW-IC101)
Easy addition of Special I/O Units and CPU Bus Units

Used to mount Motion Control Units and other Special I/O Units or CPU Bus Units to the NSJ-series Controller, for excellent expandability.

NSJ Series Features 9

Ethernet Unit (NSJW-ETN21)
Full use of versatile Ethernet functions

The NSJ built-in Ethernet port increases expandability with host computers by enabling functions such as communications implemented with CMND instructions and e-mail.

NSJ Series Features 11

Note: For detailed information on functions related to the NSJ built-in Ethernet port and Ethernet Unit, refer to Catalog.

Meeting the Growing Needs for Control Panel Standardization

NSJ Series Features 13

Effects of Standardizing Control Panels

Waste and inconsistency in design, installation and maintenance can be eliminated by supplying control panels that have the same basic operation regardless of the factory, the process, and the devices used in any country of the world.

 1. Operating errors can be prevented by providing the same operability.
      Reduce temporary lower operating efficiency caused by changing operators.

 2. There is no need to produce an operating manual for each device.
       Initial training cost can also be reduced.

 3. Standardization greatly reduces the number of maintenance parts.
      Even if a malfunction occurs, the entire control panel can be replaced as a module for quick and easy system

 4. Standardization makes it possible to create templates for design documents, screens, and ladder programs. This
       increases the ability to reuse the templates, which greatly raises design efficiency.

Less Effort in Designing and Debugging

Advantages of One Package

Use of a single USB cable simplifies both design and debugging.

Use of a commercially available USB cable allows easy, high-speed transferring of screen data and ladder programs. There is also no need to change cables for transfers such as these.

NSJ Series Features 22

(1) Power ON
(2) Simply connect the USB cable and you are ready to transfer screen data and ladder programs.

Continue using your software assets.

Continue to use all the screen data for NS-series PTs and ladder programs for CS/CJ-series PLCs.

NSJ Series Features 23

Simply turn ON the power and start using it. No need for initial settings.

There is no need to connect the Controller Section and Display Section, and no need to make initial communications settings or other settings.
The system starts up as soon as the power is turned ON. Even the standard-equipped DeviceNet Master is completely set in the default settings.

NSJ Series Features 24

The CX-One Integrated FA Tool Package Is Available

This software can be used to debug ladder programs and screens without even having to connect to an actual system.

The test functions of the CX-Designer Screen Designer for NS Series have been further strengthened. By selecting CX-Simulator as the connection destination, screen data and ladder programs can be simultaneously tested without even having to connect to an actual system.

NSJ Series Features 26

The SAP Library, which dramatically reduces effort in design, has also been greatly expanded.

More than 2,000 Smart Active Parts (SAP) are available for directly accessing OMRON PLCs and components. Simply copy them from the library and paste them onto the screen. There is absolutely no need to design screens or ladder programs for these objects.

NSJ Series Features 27

Less Effort in Maintenance

Two Troubleshooters Come as a Standard Feature

Enables a quick, on-site action without any software.

The standard-equipped PLC Troubleshooter and DeviceNet Troubleshooter contribute to solving problems during device startup and operation. When an error occurs, simply follow the on-screen instructions to confirm the error details and quickly implement countermeasures, without referring to the manual.

A Ladder Program Monitor Is Also Standard

Switching from the operation screen to the screen for monitoring PLC ladder programs only takes about 5 seconds.

This software lets you monitor PLC program status, search for addresses or instructions, monitor multiple I/O points, and much more. It only takes about 5 seconds to switch from a user screen to the ladder program monitoring screen. From a selected input bit, you can also search for the next sequence output instruction that uses the same address.

NSJ Series Features 32

A Data Backup Function Is Also Standard

Easy backup without a computer.

Simply follow the on-screen instructions to back up both screen data and ladder programs for the Controller Section.
