MELSEC iQ-F Series - FX5U

Mitsubishi FX5UDesigned on the concepts of outstanding performance, superior drive control and user centric programming, Mitsubishi's F Series has been reborn as the MELSEC iQ-F Series.

From stand alone use to networked system applications, MELSEC iQ-F Series brings your business to the next level of industry, offering enhanced high speed bus, expanded built-in functions, advanced SSCNETIII/H support and improved engineering environment. Program and parameters are set with the GXWorks3 engineering software.

The FX5U gives the FX a performance boost and adds features that set benchmark standards for compact PLCs. It enables users to develop more complex and sophisticated automation systems, as well as higher performance applications, without having to migrate to a larger and more costly PLC family. 

The FX5U offers simple connection options to a wide range of automation equipment, including Mitsubishi Electric servos and inverters, Cognex vision systems, networks and energy meters, with reduced wiring effort and no additional programming.

Positioning Control
The FX5U includes Mitsubishi Electric´s Simple Motion Unit as an intelligent function module, providing the ability to perform sophisticated motion control for up to 4 axes. Functions include linear interpolation, circular interpolation, positioning control, synchronized control, encoder following and electronic cam.

GT1000 Graphical Operation Terminals

GT12 more information The GT12 Series is an extension of Mitsubishi's 4th generation line of Graphical Operation Terminals (GOT). Models in this range offer a competitive feature set in a tightly integrated HMI hardware package. The GT12 includes many embedded maintenance functions and shares a lot of commonality with the GT16, GT15 and GT11 Series only that the GT12 Series is design primarily for connections to Mitsubishi Solutions. Terminals in this range deliver visualization on a budget for many machine and factory level applications. Models in this series range in size from 8.4 inch to 10.4 inch and offer a 256 color TFT display as standard.

Common hardware features for the GT12 include an enhanced CPU and graphics engine, integrated communication ports (RS232/RS422/485/Ethernet) and power supply, rear mounted USB port (USB device), compact flash slot, 6MB of onboard flash memory and the latest in analog touch panel technology.

Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs)

VFD more information The A700 features many of the special technologies originally developed for Mitsubishi Electric servo drive products, such as adaptive auto-tuning that automatically compensates for changes in load inertia. The result is smoother operation, less downtime and ultimately, lower operating costs. Control modes include Velocity, Torque and Positioning. Real Sensorless Vector allows Zero speed holding torque and torque control without the need for an encoder.
