Oct. 3, 2014 – The Sysmac NJ Machine Automation Controller from Omron Automation and Safety provides direct connectivity to SQL databases, including Microsoft SQL, Oracle, IBM DB2, MySQL and Firebird. This enables OEMs and end-users to improve machine performance by eliminating the maintenance complexities associated with PCs and middleware, while collecting data for analysis and optimization. Sysmac NJ can help OEMs differentiate their machines without requiring a change to their solution architecture or panel size. It is also meant to simplify the design and build process because it uses just one program and software for logic, motion, vision and database connectivity. Sysmac NJ is quickly programmed with pre-made SQL function blocks, making it easy for controls programmers to read and write data to/from the SQL database at speeds up to 20 ms per transaction, the company says.
