Among the many great industrial solutions that we offer at Advanced Motion & Controls Ltd. are motion controllers. These devices are manufactured by Omron Industrial Automation, a company with more than three-quarters of a century’s worth of experience in making incredibly powerful – yet extremely easy to implement – industrial automation products. Omron’s dedicated research and development, and its commitment to devising innovative products that improve quality and efficiency in manufacturing operations, result in a mix of advanced technical capabilities with practical application.
The brains of any motion-control system, Omron’s motion controllers take input commands from users in feedback-based systems, compare them with feedback signals from the motors, and take corrective action to bring outputs and inputs in line with one another, preferably with little or zero error. These devices also create the trajectories that motors follow to meet the desired commands and then use the trajectories to generate proper torque commands, which are then sent to the drives that power the motors.
We carry 13 different models of motion controllers by Omron. Various types of motion architecture are available, such as machine controllers, programmable multi-axis controllers, standalone, Omron-PLC-based, and servo-based. Options for drive-control methods include analog output, EtherCAT, MECHATROLINK-II, pulse train output, indexer functionality, and PWM output. The number of axes on a model ranges from one to 256, while applicable servo drives include 1S, Accurax G5, G-Series, and SmartStep 2. Relevant PLC series include NX/NJ, CJ, CS1, and Standalone. The CK3M model has CNC functionality, while the CK3E and NY51-A versions have G-Code programming language.
Advanced Motion & Controls Ltd. dedicates itself to supplying top-quality support and part specification for its full inventory of Omron products, including relays, timers, counters, switches, temperature and process controllers, sensors, HMIs, motion control, and PLCs.
Omron’s portfolio of products available from us extends to automation systems, AC and servo drives, motors, temperature and process controls, sensors, code readers, and a broad range of industrial components. It is one of many great manufacturers who partner with us to make innovative automation solutions available to Canadian businesses. Contact us to find out more about Omron solutions.
