EtherCAT is an Ethernet-based, next-generation, ultra-high-speed motion network that enables high-speed, highly accurate communication between devices that control the operations of machine controls and is widely used around the world to meet the increasing need for high-speed, high-precision control. EtherCAT is being promoted by the EtherCAT Technology Group (ETG) headquartered in Germany and is gaining worldwide usage in the United States, Japan, China, and Korea. Omron is collaborating with ETG and ETG Japan to promote the adoption of EtherCAT. 13 Omron Through the Year January 28 AEC Decision on the details for spinning off the AEC segment (in a simple incorporation-type separation) EMC Decision on the details for spinning off the switches business (in a simple absorption-type separation) 2010 (YoY change) (YoY change) 3Q Consolidated net sales Consolidated operating income ¥138.1 billion ¥8.7 billion -4.2% — 4Q Consolidated net sales ¥154.2 billion Consolidated operating income ¥12.1 billion +20.1% — October November December January February March November 1 January–March Launch of the commercial-use HBP-9021 automatic blood A world first for MEMS!
