A leading supplier of semiconductor-based solutions was looking for ways to improve the efficiency of routine maintenance change outs for their clean room tools. The technicians, many times, were left to carry tools into the clean-room by hand. Occasionally they would use simple clean room approved work carts that were more or less a bench with wheels. They were searching for something that would allow the technicians to be more efficient and organized while they were working in the clean room.

A leading manufacturer of semiconductor wafer fabrication equipment was in need of a filter manifold (skid) for their new N2 on-site generation unit.  The manufacturing company develops innovative solutions that help their customers build smaller, faster, more powerful, and more power-efficient electronic devices.  They use these tools to produce tiny, complex chips for cell phones, computing devices, and entertainment gadgets. The manufacturer of those tools requires them to house on-site nitrogen generators and canisters to store the gas produced from these generators.

Omron’s new NJ501-1340 CPU unit integrates both machine control and communication functionality, meaning the NJ controller can be directly connected with the existing host to establish SECS/GEM communications, eliminating the need of a separate computer or special communications unit. Unlike previous CPU units, the NJ series uses variables for programming and is free from complicated address setting and management.
