Building green control panels
Natural disasters caused by global warming and climate change are becoming a global social issue, that drives over 150 countries and regions worldwide to take action toward decarbonization. Our goal is to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by half through new ways of building control panels at the manufacturing site. It is a constant challenge to build high-performance control panel systems with a smaller footprint. OMRON takes pride in providing high-quality panel systems through innovative solutions.
Integrating green perspectives into Value Design
Value Design for Panel (Value Design) is the common concept shared across OMRON’s in-panel product specifications to deliver new value to your control panels. This Value Design also integrates the environment consideration concept that enables earth and user-friendly control panel building.
- Unified height & slim size
- Side-by-side mounting at (55°C) ambient temperature
- Unique Push-In Plus technology
- Front-in and front-release wiring
- eCAD library Certification for CE, UL, and CSA
- Green features that save energy and resources
Extensive lineup of products for building sustainable control panels
Products that especially contribute to reducing environmental impact
The below products reduce GHG emissions by over 50% compared to previous (2016) products through power-saving, resource-saving, and reducing waste (according to OMRON investigation in March 2023)
Reducing GHG emissions of control panels
Reducing power consumption by reviewing specifications. Reduce control panel power consumption by replacing devices. Our low power consumption devices allow you to easily build power-saving control panels, without compromising design philosophy.
By Downsizing 20%
To meet strong demands in downsizing facilities or equipments, we need to downsize control panels to be built into equipments.
As such, our panel components are designed to be lighter and slimmer in size. This effectively reduces costs on transportation and floor space of your facility.
For Future Expansion
Using our slim and short-bodied panel components creates surplus space inside control panels.
Businesses that retain their existing panels can experience up to 50% of space savings.
This provides more flexibility in design changes and component additions, hence facilitating future expansion plans.
To Reduce Dead Space
With advanced downsizing design, our components reduce dead spaces in control panels by 20% and optimise the width between wiring ducts.
This design optimises space usage in the control panel, contributing to the downsizing of entire equipment.
Increase Product Lifespan
Better Heat Dissipation
Having difference in heights and depths in your control panel can cause uneven heat dissipation. This will increase the need for maintenance or product renewal. With the cost of downtime being so high, maintenance-friendly control panel design is important.
To improve the air circulation and reduce hot spots in control panel, we have unified our product heights. This improves the reliability of panel components, reduces failure rate, and lengthens the product life span. Panel businesses can enjoy more savings in the long run.
Available in a wide range from input to control, output, and safety.
