Openness meets Automation Control

Consumers are now demanding more than low prices. They want good quality, attractive texture, and functionality - all available at a reasonable price. To meet all these requirements, manufacturing sites must be reformed. A shift is made from the previous focus on improving machine cycle times and precision to control of manufacturing systems using data collected from production lines through Internet of Things (IoT).

Omron's Industrial PC Platform has been designed to adapt to changes in the manufacturing environment.

What is Omron's Industrial PC Platform?

The future will be IT driven: Omron’s IPC Platform will make you part of it through the combination of high-speed, high-precision machine control and data handling.

Just imagine future manufacturing:
Smooth linkage and coordination between machines on a production line enable the planned recipes and schedules to be reflected in actual production processes. Operators can take advantage of a secure operating environment created through an intuitive HMI and PC-based technologies such as face recognition. Production data is collected at high speed and analyzed to reflect on future production plans, which leads to productivity and quality improvements across the whole production line.

The intent behind our IPC Platform is to empower engineers to make future-proof machines that are better, faster and safer - while at the same time giving them the freedom and flexibility to explore new opportunities provided by modern ICT technology.
Our IPC is designed specifically for industrial machines and manufacturing usage, to make them innovative, yet reliable. Its architecture is highly modular and flexible, so it provides the ability to adopt new functionality swiftly and reliably.
This platform is designed to grow with future market trends and customer needs.

IPC Machine Controller

The IPC Machine Controller combines the precision and utility of the proven Sysmac platform with the versatility and range of Windows programs. The two platforms operate simultaneously but separately, so if Windows is down, the machine just keeps on working.
The integrated development environment software Sysmac Studio allows you to program the controller in familiar languages, Ladder and Structured Text.
As a result, engineers become unstoppable - empowered to explore manufacturing innovation by leveraging big data, NUI (Natural User Interface) and IoT (Internet of Things) initiatives, all without compromising proven PLC reliability and robustness.

Perfect fusion: Sysmac machine control and IT technology
  • Perfect fusion: Sysmac machine control and IT technology

Machine automation control software can be used in combination with Windows operating system on an industrial PC.

We use partitioning, so that both operating systems can work independently: if Windows is down, the machine is not affected.

The Sysmac automation platform uses EtherCAT®, standard machine network, to connect servo drives, I/O devices, and other field devices and provide high-speed, high-precision control.

The IPC Machine Controller comes equipped with an EtherCAT® port and an EtherNet/IP, standard factory network, port. The two networks with one connection purpose is the perfect match between advanced machine control and management of your automation plant.

Integration of the IPC Machine Controller with a wide range of our ILOR+S (Input, Logic, Output, Robotics, and Safety) devices within our one connection concept enables you to create your own solutions.

The future of control with Omron's Industrial PC Platform
- Information is the new currency -

The NY Industrial PC Platform is designed to empower engineers to explore manufacturing innovation by leveraging Big Data, Natural User Interfaces (NUI), and the Internet of Things (IoT), while also enabling the installation of simple standard software tools and widgets. They can do this without compromising either PC performance or the established reliability and robustness of machine control, thus maximizing machine uptime. We give you the freedom to install your own software on a PC platform you can trust.

Manufacturers recognize the importance of dialog: between machines; between machines and their operators; between machines and their environment; and in the future maybe even between machines and the products they make. That’s what makes information the new currency, and why it lies at the heart of future machine design.

Engineers already start thinking about it, using familiar IT programming and widgets. Our IPC platform is just the enabler, a trustworthy foundation to build their own ideas on.
