The MX2 IP54 inverter is now available in a robust housing for distributed installation. A built-in class 1 EMC filter, the easy wiring access and the front-mounted USB connector make installation and commissioning simple.  The MX2 IP54 is designed for indoor and outdoor standalone inverter applications up to 15 kW 400V three phase. Single and three phase 200V models are also available.


MX2 IP54 is suitable for low to medium torque motor and machine control applications requiring smooth motor control down to zero speed, plus precise operation for fast cyclic operations and torque control capability in open loop. The MX2 delivers 200% starting torque near standstill (0.5 Hz) and can operate in torque control in open loop mode, allowing it to be used in applications in place of closed loop AC vector drives.


The MX2 offers comprehensive functionality for machine control such as positioning, speed synchronisation and logic programming, and is fully integrated within the Omron Sysmac automation platform.



MX2 series functionality and communication option boards, Industrial communication networks include Modbus RS485 built-in, and the option of additional boards for EtherCAT, DeviceNet, PROFIBUS, CompoNet, ML-II and EtherNet/IP


Built-in PLC

The MX2 simplifies integration by providing onboard PLC functionality as standard. Using an intuitive flow chart programming tool, users can create programs with up to 1000 lines of code and with 5 tasks running in parallel. Programming software is integrated into Omron’s CX-Drive package.


Inverter safety function

Safety is embedded in the MX2, according to ISO 13849-1, Cat 3, with two safety inputs and an External Device Monitoring (EDM) output. No external contactors on the motor side are required, meaning simpler wiring for the user.  An External Device Monitoring (EDM) output confirms the safety status of the inverter, saving you the cost and wiring of external devices to carry out the same function.  MX2 can be directly integrated into the safety circuit and the safety inputs can be linked from one inverter to another without additional safety relays.
