Omron NX Series

The NX I/O system offers a wide variety of I/O devices. Its ultra-fast internal bus system is synchronized with the Distributed Clock of the EtherCAT network. The resulting system-wide deterministic I/O operation allows machine builders to improve machine production rates and output quality. An EtherNet/IP bus coupler is available for non-synchronous use , e.g. with CJ-series PLC's.

NX-series I/O covers a full range of units, including standard and high-speed digital I/O's, various performance levels in analogue I/O, encoder inputs and pulse outputs. The series is continuously expanded with time-stamped I/O, safety I/O, alternative bus systems and application-specific modules.

5 things to never forget;

  • Choice in performance: standard, high-speed synchronous or time-stamped I/O's
  • Safety controller and Safety I/O's can be mixed with standard I/O
  • EtherCAT for real-time motion, EtherNet/IP for general-purpose control
  • Up to 16 digital I/O's in just 12 mm width
  • Save up to 50% installation time with screwless push-in terminals

Features and benefits;

  • Scalable performance
  • The NX I/O system offers a wide variety of I/O units. Its ultra-fast internal bus system is synchronized with the Distributed Clock of the EtherCAT network. The resulting system-wide deterministic I/O operation allows machine builders to improve machine production rates and output quality. An EtherNet/IP bus coupler is available for non-synchronous use, e.g. with CJ-series PLC's.
  • Open network interfaces: EtherCAT or EtherNet/IP.
  • Scalable safety control, fully integrated.
  • Mix standard and high-performance I/O's

Important to find out;

  • High-speed or Motion? EtherCAT offers deterministic control.
  • Safety control required? Fully integrated.
  • Low-cost competitor? We have push-in connection, removable terminal, high-speed bus, local USB access.

Markets and Applications;

  • Machine automation: packaging, assembly.
  • Material handling.

Sales considerations;

  • The 'low-end' of remote I/O has many vendors and fierce price competition. NX I/O is designed with high-speed synchronous control in mind. Units like time-stamp I/O and high-speed analog make it a premium system.
  • When safety integration is needed, we offer the most flexible and easy-to-use solution
  • Removable front connector allows signal disconnection for testing and commissioning, easy replacement.
