COMACT PLC

Compact PLC – MELSEC FX3UC



High-End and Ultra-Compact

The new MELSEC FX3UC CPU brings greater flexibility and more performance to applications which do not have space for traditional style PLC's. Like all other members of the FX family, each FX3UC PLC consists of a fully-integrated base unit that contains all the necessary PLC components, from the CPU to memory and the I/O controller.

The smallest base unit with 8 digital inputs and 8 transistor outputs takes up just 27 % of the space required for a comparable FX3U unit – and yet the FX3UC incorporates all the features of the FX3U.

The FX3UC base units all have a 24V DC power supply and are available in versions with 16, 32, 64 or 96 I/Os. They can be expanded up to a maximum configuration of 384 I/Os by adding expansion modules and networked I/O points.

Just like the FX3U, the FX3UC offers outstanding connectivity for all standard networks.

I/O terminal blocks with screw or spring terminals can be connected with standard ribbon cable connectors.

Are you looking for a control solution with power to spare? Then the FX3UC may be what you are looking for with:

  • an execution cycle period of just 0.065 ms per logical instruction
  • up to 40,768 data registers
  • up to 7,680 internal relay coils/flexs
  • 210 commands
  • memory for up to 64 k of PLC program steps

This makes the FX3UC one of the fastest and most powerful PLC systems in its class. In fact, it puts quite a few larger modular controller systems in the shade.

MODULAR PLC

Modular PLC, Reliable control when you need it most

The modular concept

Building on its predecessor, the AnSH, SystemQ is a control concept that allows users to mix and select the best combination of CPUs, communication devices, specialist control modules and discreet I/O on a back-plane.

This allows users to configure systems into what they need, when they need it, where they need it.

Multiple capabilities

Basic and advanced PLC CPUs, specialist motion and process controllers and even PCs can be combined into a single SystemQ solution with up to four different CPUs. This gives users a choice of control philosophies, programming concepts and programming languages – all from a single platform.

An automation platform for the future

Flexibility and scalability are key design features that enable System Q to truly be a single Automation Platform. Users can apply simple control to an individual machine or integrated plant wide management all from the same hardware base.

Modular PLC range

What can you expect from Mitsubishi Modular PLCs?

  • Global use
    A wide range power supply means your Modular System Q will work all over the world and with the huge range of shipping approvals, CE compliance, as well as manufacturing to Automotive industry quality levels, SystemQ is a product to trust.
  • Totally scalable
    System Q is designed to grow with your application, from the Q00J standalone solution to the networked and redundant process CPU Q25PRH. System Q's platform concept allows you to add and customize the special functions you need.
  • Multi CPU
    The SystemQ Automation Platform allows you to use multiple CPU’s on a single backplane. You can combine up to four CPU types, such as PLC, Motion, PC, Q-C and Process CPU’s, as a single seamless solution.
  • Multi network connectivity
    From basic AS-Interface to Ethernet based networks, System Q can communicate easily with Mitsubishi or third party products. To increase the productivity in your plant, System Q can also provide a direct connection to any database based on SQL via an Ethernet connection.
  • Flexibility
    The wide range of power supplies, CPU’s, I/O Modules, Special Modules and Communication Modules makes System Q one of the most flexible modular automation systems in the world.
  • Dual redundancy
    The redundant Process CPUs Q12/25PRH can, with standard PLC technology, provide a hot standby system with the automatic synchronization of data. The modular concept also allows different degrees of redundancy from power supply and control systems to redundant network modules.

PROCESS CONTROL

Modular PLC – process control



Process control you can count on

A platform to build on

The strength of System Q’s automation platform really comes into its own in traditional specialist industries. The unique flexibility of proven off-the-shelf control components such as I/O and communication devices, teamed with dedicated special devices like process CPUs, assures high functionality, ease of use and targeted control – all within budget.

Two worlds meet

Our dedicated System Q process CPUs build on the already high functionality of Mitsubishi’s advanced PLC CPUs. This powerful combination of sequential control overlaid with dedicated process instructions gives users a hybrid control solution with the best of both worlds.

This is complemented in turn by a range of dedicated channel-isolated and highresolution analogue modules. Here, too, a combination of specialist and standard modules provides the basis for practical and flexible solutions.

High system availability can be maintained through various means, including redundant process CPUs, stand-by network masters, and redundant network configurations, as well as by wire-break detection and a “hot-swap” capability that allows modules to be replaced during live operation.

Programming can be implemented using a wide range of tools such as IEC1131.3 compliant software and the process-dedicated PX Developer.

Process CPUs

System Q’s Process CPUs bring the benefits of standard System Q technology into the process environment, reducing both implementation and long-term running costs. These powerful processors combine standard PLC control with 52 dedicated process control functions, including loop controls with two degrees of freedom (DOF) and highspeed PID control.

Redundant CPUs

Mitsubishi Electric’s dual-redundant CPUs bring an additional layer of fault tolerance to the control of a whole system. This results in high reliability: if the main CPU, power supply or base unit fails, a secondary system starts immediately (within 21ms) from the same control point.

For users this has two major benefits: no operational damage due to a single system failure, and production that continues seamlessly.

High reliability systems

The System Q automation platform can also be applied to other areas requiring high reliability, e.g. standby network masters, redundant fieldbus (CC-Link) and redundant power supplies for remote I/O stations.

In addition, selected analogue and temperature control units have a wirebreak detection feature enabling them to determine the difference between an actual signal and one that has been lost due to external system damage.

HMI



HMI solutions for every application

Processes and quality standards are becoming increasingly complex and demanding, requiring industrial automation systems capable of providing much more detailed information on the control processes for plant and machinery.

Mitsubishi Electric provides a broad spectrum of operating and visualisation systems, ranging from simple text-based HMI panels to full-featured industrial PCs. The series include text-based HMI panels, graphical HMI panels, HMI panels with function keys, HMI panels with touch screens and industrial PCs in a variety of different versions.

Vision 1000

Mitsubishi Electric has pushed forward the development of its visualisation programme, realigning the products in this sector with a new concept called Vision 1000. This concept is built around three series of products based on the latest technologies: the E1000, IPC1000 and GOT1000 series. All three series share flexibility, openess and seamless compatibility with all Mitsubishi Electric automation systems.

Mitsubishi operating and visualisation systems offer many application advantages:

  • Easier operation and better control of the process
  • A clear representation of the process in text and graphics
  • Generation of reports for quality control and interfaces for process data communications with other departments
  • Precise error messages and instructions
  • Flexible, open and thoroughly compatible with all Mitsubishi automation systems
  • Third-party system compatibility for universal deployment
