About CAD Data

OMRON CAD File Q&A

Specific information related to OMRON CAD files is provided here in Q&A format. This information is updated regularly. Refer to it if you experience some kind of problem or if there is anything you do not understand.

CAD data cannot be downloaded. Downloading does not start or it starts but is not completed successfully due to a time-around or some other problem. Why is this?
The cause may be congestion in the network. Try downloading at another time.
Downloaded data cannot be opened.The file extension changes or the data is corrupted. Why is this?
It is possible that the wrong extension was added when the file was saved, and so check the extension when downloading. The corruption of data may be caused by congestion in the network or other software running on the same computer and so try downloading at another time or try downloading after closing all the other software.
Required data cannot be found.
The data may not be currently registered.
It is possible that the corresponding data has not been created and has therefore not been registered to the web site. In this case, inquire whether or not the required data has been created. If there is data similar to the required data, we will send it to you. If there is no similar data, however, there is no data that we can send you.
There are differences between CAD data and catalog information.On opening the CAD data, it was discovered that the data is different to that in the catalog. Why is this?
There are cases where, because of design changes, differences arise between the CAD data and the information in catalogs. In this case, please send us the model number, file name, data type, and detailed or simplified diagrams of the parts that are different to us by e-mail or FAX. If correction is necessary, we will send you corrected data. For details on sending data, please click here.

2D-CAD Specifications
Specifications for Graphics Data
  • In order to reduce the volume of graphics data, some detailed parts have been simplified.
  • External dimensions and mounting-hole dimensions are indicated.
  • The mounting reference position is indicated in front-view diagrams by a dot of radius 0.5 (coordinates (0, 0)).
  • Different colors are used for the product exterior, dimensions, and centerlines.
  • Mounting holes and panel cutouts are shown with the actual dimensions (only for products that appear in general catalogs).
  • Optical axes are indicated with phantom lines (e.g., in photo-microsensors, and other sensors).
  • Operating parts are indicated in color with phantom lines.
  • All text is in English.

AutoCAD R12J and DXF data for products added in or after April 1999 are available in layered format. Note that the two types of specifications are used together. For details on specifications, refer to the method for using the corresponding type of data.

Information related to the product's external dimensions and panel cutouts is provided.
Note that the dimensions given for displays and keys in the data are hypothetical.

  • The graphics data contains the minimum required amount of information, such as outlines, centerlines, mounting holes, external dimensions, and mounting dimensions.
  • All graphics data is input in image layer 0.
  • Colors are used in the way shown in the following table.
[Item] [Color]
Product white
Centerlines and fine lines yellow
Dimensions and text cyan
Metal fixtures and operating parts green
  • The file name extension is "*.DWG".
  • The data is created with the R12J version of AutoCAD.

    Select Command line; preferences, click the Color tab in the dialog box, select Window Element and set Background color of graphic windows to Black.
  • The words "LAYERED DRAWINGS" appear under the file name for graphics data created using layer specifications.
  • When using layered DWG data, CAD-data image layers are added to design drawings. Customers managing image layers must either first change the specifications of the CAD data before use or change the specifications after pasting it to the design drawing.
  • Method for Changing Specifications

    [Changing the Names or Colors of Image Layers or Changing Line Settings]
    1. Select the image layer object to be changed.
    2. Select Command line; ddchprop (changing object) to display a dialog box.
    3. Select the image layer name, image layer color, or line setting allocated to that object.

  • Manipulate the drawings as required using your CAD system.
  • The file name extension is "*.DXF".
Precautions for Use
  • The words "LAYERED DRAWINGS" appear under the file name of graphics data created using layer specifications.
  • Viewing may not be possible due to differences in DXF versions. In this case, after confirming the version of the DXF converter for your CAD software, contact the CAD Data File Help Desk.
  • Depending on your CAD software, the DXF conversion table may be different and so the following may occur.

The shape of dimension lines and arrows change.
Text is output with a different font.
Curved lines and phantom lines are not output properly.

Please confirm the dimensions and notes given in our general catalogs before use.

Specifications for Graphics Data

Data File names

  • The "-" symbols in model names are replaced with "_" symbols in file names.
  • The file names for components in an assembly file are constructed by adding each component's name to the assembly file name.
    For example, the file name of a nut used for the E2E-X3D1S is "E2E_X3D1S_NUT". However, for components that can be purchased separately and have their own model number, this model number is used as the file name.

Text

  • # All text data is in a globally recognized format that does not include 2-byte characters.

Configuration and Arrangement of Assembly Components

  • Data for components that can be opened, closed, operated, or removed is created separately and included in assembly files.
  • Data for accessories and configuration components that can be purchased separately is created separately and included in assembly files.
  • Components of pushbutton switches that can be purchased separately, such as indicators, are created separately and included together with the data for the pushbutton switches.
  • Graphics data for switches shows the state where levers and plungers are in the free position (FP).
  • Graphics data containing switch levers shows the state where they are free to move in the operating direction (SolidWorks data only).
  • Graphics data containing covers or doors shows them in the closed state.

Reference Positions

  • The assembly reference position is used as the origin (x=0, y=0, z=0) in 3D data.
  • In data for products mounted to mounting holes, the position of the mounting hole is used as the origin.
  • In data for products inserted in sockets, the center of the side that makes contact with the socket is used as the origin.

Omitted and Simplified Data

  • In order to reduce the volume of graphics data, some detailed parts have been simplified. In general, parts that do not need to be considered for layout are omitted
  • Screws and bolts are represented by cylinders with the nominal diameter, without the thread, and are colored pink. Screw heads are also simplified as cylinders.
  • Small fillets, chamfers, and draft angles are omitted.
  • Only the number-one connector pins are created, the others are omitted. In some cases, if the assembly position and orientation are clear from the shape of the connector, all pins may be omitted.
  • Only the operating axis is shown for DIP switches.
  • Individual details for heat-radiating fins and ventilation holes are omitted. they are represented by plain figures covering the ranges they occupy.
  • Chamfers and holes at the ends of terminals are omitted.
  • Rubber boots are represented by plain figures of the maximum possible dimensions.
  • Labels, printing, markings, and product logos are omitted.

Colors (Not Applicable to STEP Data)

  • Colors approximating those of the actual products are used. (Information may be lost or changed in formats other than SolidWorks.)
  • Transparent portions are colored ivory.
  • Indicators are colored to reflect the status when lit. If the indicator lights with two or more colors, the color corresponding to the higher level of danger is used.
  • Screw locations are colored pink.
  • Color information is not contained in STEP data.

Dimensions

  • Agreement between the dimensions of the figures and the actual dimensions is only guaranteed for dimensions given in diagrams in specification sheets and catalogs.
2D Graphics Data
  • The 2D graphics data that can be downloaded from the 3D data download screen is simple graphics data.
  • Download 2D-CAD data by pressing the 2D button in Product List Page.
  • CAD graphics are based on a scale of 1:1.
