Omron 1SA Series Servos with Functional Safety
Manufacturing companies face growing pressure to improve productivity while protecting people and machines.  Automation with integrated safety has evolved to reach higher performance levels, but production line suspensions remain inevitable.

Omron's new 1SA Series Servos with functional safety let you reduce machine stoppage, avoid machine-product interference during unexpected shutdowns, and enjoy zero-loss production with synchronized emergency stops.

Advanced motion safety functions help you complete a risk reduction strategy, reduce machine downtime, and improve maintenance and changeover efficiency.


1SA Series Servo Features

Safe Limited Speed
Machine adjustments often can’t be measured without stopping the machine. With safe limited speed (SLS), operators can enter machines to measure adjustments while the machines run at a safe speed.

Safe Stop 1 and 2
Machines sometimes lose axis coordination during emergency shutdowns. Say goodbye to this problem with safe stop 1 and 2 (SS1 & SS2), which let axes run while machines come to a controlled stop.

Safe Position
Loading or unloading parts on large machines can cause excessive downtime. Safe position lets machine’s automated portion move to a safe work zone while an operator loads and unloads from another.

Safe Operating Stop
Operators sometimes need to break light curtains during load/unload sequences. With safe operating stop (SOS), servos can maintain their position while stopped in a safe manner.


A Powerful Automation Software

The 1SA Series Servo uses Sysmac Studio to support the design and simulation of standard and safety control in a sequential manner. This versatile software reduces commissioning time of the servo system and safety system by approximately 35%.

The One Cable Technology connects the servo drive and motor. Power, encoder, and brake are integrated into one pre-assembled cable, and the rotating connector of the servo motor lets you change cable outlet direction. These features increase design flexibility by facilitating cable connection and disconnection during layout changes and maintenance.


Reaching the Highest Safety Level

The 1SA Series Servo provides eight safety functions to safely run machines, and all of them satisfy PLe/SIL3 to provide the highest level of safety for your machine operators.

In the case of an emergency stop, for example, synchronized motors decelerate to a stop, and the stationary state is monitored to avoid any breakdown of products and machinery and smoothly restart the production equipment.
