May 20, 2020 – Omron Automation Americas recently announced the release of its CP2E Series all-in-one controller that provides advanced control that enables IIoT connectivity for compact machines. The controller works to improve manufacturing productivity and quality by helping to visualize the performance and data of connected machines through simple programming.
The CP2E enables IIoT connectivity for compact machines. The controller collects machine performance data and shares the necessary information with enterprise networks, while the predefined program data and function blocks allow virtually anyone to set up machines to perform complex control. This works to reduce the time required for programming, testing, debugging, and maintenance.
In addition, the CP2E’s extended operating temperature range makes it an option for machines in non-manufacturing industries, such as infrastructure and agriculture, where the demand for controllers is increasing. These industries have typically used non-standard controllers that customers have to manage and maintain using their own expertise, since environmental resistance as well as IIoT is crucial.
The CP2E has two Ethernet ports with Ethernet switching function: host and HMI connectivity. Up to three serial ports are available for open connectivity to serial devices. Function blocks help to achieve 4-axis positioning function with linear interpolation, and the CP2E also provides a PID control with autotuning function block for stable temperature control. The CP2E’s input/output terminal LED indicators ensure root cause identification, while the controller’s ability to automatically detect and recover from bit corruption increase machine efficiency and avoids CPU stops.
