Environment-resistive Remote Terminal NXR-series IO-Link I/O Hub


Reduced wiring system with IO-Link

Streamline commissioning and maintenance efforts by 90%*1

In order to address the chronic shortage of engineers or utilize information technology at manufacturing sites, modern network technology is being rapidly adopted. However, since conventional methods cannot be used, some problems, such as increase in MTTR and commissioning time, are arising on production floors.As a solution to these problems, Omron analyzed unnecessary and inefficient work in production processes, and developed NXR Series that comes equipped with various functions to save time.

NXR-[]D166C-IL2 Features 1

IP67 Remote Terminal

No control panel required

NXR-[]D166C-IL2 Features 3

Reduced wiring system

Adding the IO-Link I/O hub simplifies wiring while providing the capability of data utilization.

NXR-[]D166C-IL2 Features 4

Simple and quick setup and commissioning

Automatic setting of IO-Link parameters on the configuration tool and transfer of remote terminal and IO-Link device settings from the controller significantly reduce setup time by 90%*1.
*1. Compared with Omron’s NX Series in May 2020.

NXR-[]D166C-IL2 Features 6

Just select devices to update all parameters at the same time.Simple configuration prevents human errors.

NXR-[]D166C-IL2 Features 7

Configuring all devices at once from the controller eliminates the need to configure each device individually, greatly cutting down setup time.

Stable operation by visualizing communication quality

Quantified Ethernet and IO-Link communication statuses allow you to find network cabling errors before operation. During operation, the communication statuses can be monitored, making it possible to check the system before it suddenly stops.

NXR-[]D166C-IL2 Features 8

Short MTTR by easy replacement and quick recovery

I/O cable and communication cable diagnostics

The remote terminal reports approximate locations of disconnections or short circuits in Ethernet cables, and detects disconnections or short circuits in I/O cables.

NXR-[]D166C-IL2 Features 10

Replacement without software

The IP address can be set using the hardware switch, without using special software.
