OEMs and end users seeking better control and visibility of their equipment will find a welcome solution in the recent product release from global automation solutions provider Omron Automation Americas. Omron has released its new Soft NA software for its industrial PC (IPC) to offer seamless and efficient control and visualization.

The new launch is an integrated combination of the Omron IPC and Soft NA. As the Soft NA is the ideal HMI for applications not requiring a full SCADA system, this solution can eliminate the need for an IPC for data (such as ERP, SAP, Sysmac Studio or CXONE) and a separate NA5 HMI for NJ/NX machine control.

The Soft NA implements the full functionality of the NA5 Sysmac HMI, but in a format that will run on an IPC. End users can take advantage of a product that’s essentially an NA5-HMI in software form. Before the release of this new combination, customers lacked an easy way to use Omron’s IPC as an HMI for the company’s controllers.

End users needing an HMI interface to the Sysmac NJ/NX system and the ability to run additional software (ERP, SAP, data collection, etc.) are among those who can get the greatest benefit from this new solution. It’s also designed to help OEM customers who need to build NJ/NX-based machines with enough computer power for other applications.
