Machine automation controllerThe NJ-Series Machine Automation Controller (MAC) supported by Sysmac Studio machine automation software was created to integrate multiple, specialized controllers—motion, logic, sequence, vision, operator safety, and RFID tracking—with exacting system synchronization to deliver high performance throughput on a single controller. Different from conventional controllers and platforms, the NJ-Series MAC takes a fresh approach to resolve the integration of control technologies without degrading performance. At its simplest, the NJ-Series provides one controller for motion, logic, and vision; Sysmac Studio software with a true Integrated Development Environment (IDE) supporting programming, configuration, simulation, and monitoring; all accessed by one connection to networks optimized for factory automation information (EtherNet/IP) and real-time machine control for motion, vision, sensors and actuators (EtherCAT). The MAC features an advanced real-time scheduler to manage motion, network, and the user application updates at the same time to ensure perfect synchronization.
