ace unit imparts network slave capabilities to AC Drives. The EtherNet/IP interface makes it easy for machine builder OEMs to standardize on 3G3MX2 AC Drives for equipment designed for use in North America. The expanded industrial communication options for compact Omron 3G3MX2 AC Drives simplify integration into production lines and work cells.


The 3G3MX2 is a compact yet powerful AC Drive designed with the Original Equipment Manufacturer in mind. In addition to a space-saving footprint, 3G3MX2 is equipped with Safe Torque Off (STO) functionality and External Device Monitoring output circuit (EDM), suitable for SIL2 as well as Cat3 installations defined by EN-954-1.


Flow-chart "Drive Programming" with PLC-like functionality and simple positioning in open loop makes it ideal for simple single axis positioning applications. These reduce hardware and installation costs, and deliver faster performance when sequences are executed internally compared to handling these functions with separate devices. The AC drives are offered with all the globally accepted voltages (230 V, 460 V) and with the required power ratings (1/8 HP to 20 HP).
