Alternative strategies

Omron is discussing the collection, analysis and distribution of information over open networks, and also discussing the advantages of integrating Omron PC modules within PLCs.

Superimposed on a PLC rack, these modules can, for example, be optimised for mathematically intensive and real-time aspects of process control, with the option of programming in a high level language.

Other significant new product areas include networkable, multizone temperature controllers with associated colour graphics interfaces for effective operator interaction with the process variables from centralised or distributed locations. Also on show are temperature, heat/cool and PID process control co-processors for Omron PLCs.
