Omron Automation and Safety (Schaumburg, IL) offers the Sysmac NJ machine automation controller that provides direct connectivity to SQL databases, including Microsoft SQL, Oracle, IBM DB2, MySQL, and Firebird. It combines logic, motion, vision, and database connectivity into a single platform. It helps users differentiate their machines without requiring a change to their solution architecture or panel size. It also simplifies the design and build process since it uses just one program and software for logic, motion, vision, and database connectivity.

The controller is programmed with pre-made SQL function blocks, enabling controls programmers to read and write data to/from the SQL database at speeds up to 20 ms per transaction. Omron’s intuitive Sysmac Studio Software configures the connection to the SQL server.
