For More Compact Control Panels
New Value For Control Panels
Control Panels: The Heart of Manufacturing Sites.
Evolution in control panels results in large evolution in production facilities.
And if control panel design, control panel manufacturing processes, and human interaction with them are innovated, control panel manufacturing becomes simpler and takes a leap forward.
OMRON will continue to achieve a control panel evolution and process innovation through many undertakings starting with the shared Value Design for Panel *1 concept for the specifications of products used in control panels.
*1 Value Design for Panel
Our shared Value Design for Panel (herein after referred to as "Value Design") concept for the specifications of products used in control panels will create new value to our customer’s control panels.
Combining multiple products that share the Value Design concept will further increase the value provided to control panels.
World's Smallest Class of Global Power Supplies* New 240- and 480-W Models Join the S8VK-S Series
Save on space and work, and achieve resistance to environments with the S8VK-S series: and now the new 240-and 480-W models join.
Its extended product line-up provides greater design flexibility.
World's Smallest Class of Compact Body*1 and Side-by-side Mounting for More Design Flexibility
Downsizing achieved with high-efficiency, low-loss technology. OMRON's unique thermal control technology enables side-by-side mounting. Less installation area helps you downsize control panels.
[Technology for Greater Efficiency and Less Loss]
Technology developed for the S8VK-G has been advanced even further to reduce switching loss and to reduce the loss from heat-generating components, such as transformers and diodes. This has enabled downsizing and high-density mounting of mounted components.
[Sophisticated Thermal Control Technology]
OMRON’s unique thermal modeling knowhow was used to establish fast and accurate thermal simulation methods. The result is optimum component layout with controlling heat flow. By optimizing the shape and size of the heat sink, both downsizing and side-by-side mounting of the Power Supplies was achieved.
Push-In Plus Terminal Blocks for Easy Wiring
Just Insert Wires: No Tools Required
Now you can use Push-In Plus terminal blocks to reduce the time and work involved in wiring.
Greatly Reduce Wiring Work with Push-In Plus Terminal Blocks
Screwdriver Held in Place to Free Both Your Hands
Optimized shape to hold the screwdriver was created by the resin parts and the spring.
Work goes smoothly when connecting stranded wires directly to the terminal because it’s easier to aim at the desired terminal.
Easy to Insert
OMRON’s Push-In Plus terminal blocks are as easy as inserting to an earphone jack. They help reduce the work load and improve wiring quality.
Note: The sense of insertion for connecting the wire to the terminal block depends on the wire diameter.
Held Firmly in Place
Even though less insertion force is required, the wires are held firmly in place. The advanced mechanism design technology and manufacturing technology produced a spring that ensures better workability and reliability.
Ideas to Save Space in Control Panels
Eliminating Transformers for Control Circuits
(For applications with Switch Mode Power Supplies that use a IEC 61558-2-16-compliant transformer)
IEC 60204-1 in the Machinery Directive specifies that, if AC power is supplied to a control circuit, a transformer must be used in the control circuit and the transformer must have separate (compound) windings.
The Control Circuit Transformer Built into the S8VK Eliminates the Need for an Independent Transformer
IEC 60204-1 also states that a switch mode power supply that uses a transformer with separate (compound) windings satisfies the above condition. That means that a transformer in a control circuit can be eliminated by using this type of switch mode power supply.
