NX-series Temperature Control Unit


Optimize Control by Detecting Status Changes Easily Satisfy Both Productivity and Quality

The adjustments made by skilled workers are automated using AI. The innovation of production sites has begun.

Optimal and automatic temperature control without human intervention easily achieves both productivity and quality.

Previous temperature controllers have not only required a long time for start-up settings and variation adjustments, it has also been difficult to make the optimal adjustments without having experience and intuition. There were therefore some effects on quality.
In response to this situation, OMRON developed temperature controllers that includes "adaptive control technology."
This makes it possible to detect the changes in the status which will have an effect on quality and to automatically control the temperature so that the optimal state is always maintained, in the same way as a skilled worker would.
This frees production sites from troublesome start-up and adjustment work.

Causes of temperature variations on production lines

NX-TC Features 3

The answer was the industry's first inclusion* of "adaptive control technology"

With the "adaptive control" incorporated into this product, the optimal PID value is calculated automatically for both the time of the start-up and for during stable production. Furthermore, it is possible to monitor the temperature control status of the machine to automatically adjust the PID value to obtain the optimal temperature control in response to changes such as workpiece changes and machine changes.

NX-TC Features 4

* According to an investigation by OMRON of general-purpose temperature controllers for FA as of March 2017.

[New values to drive the evolution of semiconductor equipment] Empower your semiconductor equipment to maximize quality and production capacity by minimizing temperature deviations caused by disturbance.

NX-TC Features 6

Solution: NX-TC

Automatically suppresses temperature variations caused by routine disturbances

Provides stable automatic control against foreseeable temperature variations, e.g. those caused by outside air infiltration when doors are opened and closed.
Contributes to quality improvement and helps boost production capacity by reducing the wait time until temperature stabilization.

*This function is available only with NX-TC.

Control performance that achieves new value

Disruption Suppression Feature minimizes temperature deviations

The Disturbance Suppression Function is a control function that automatically suppresses temperature variations that are expected to be caused by foreseeable disturbances. Trigger signals input to the temperature controller before these disturbances occur turn the function on, which adds to or subtracts from the manipulated variable (MV). Disturbance autotuning automatically adjusts the FF (feedforward) MV, FF operation time, and FF waiting time.
