Automation in accordance with the OMAC standards

Engineering reduced through the use of OMAC libraries

Description

The OMAC (Organization for Machine Automation and Control) is a user organization the members of which comprise end users, OEMs, System Integrators and Technology Providers. The majority of these members is working in the food and beverage industries as well as the packaging sector. The objective of this organization is to define the necessary harmonized regulations and standard guidelines in order to reduce the development and delivery times, use the existing resources more efficiently and at the same time increase the profitability. Siemens is a member of this organization and provides solutions and standard blocks which have been designed according to these guidelines.

Quick and easy implementation thanks to Project Generator easyProject

The modules are integrated using the Project Generator easyProject for SIMOTION or SIMATIC. This uses the OMAC standard blocks and generates machine projects for technology functions as well as for horizontal and vertical communication. .
