Throughout the automation lifecycle, iQ reduces your costs. First, project lead time is reduced due to the high level of integration and the iQ Works suite of engineering tools. iQ Works allows a system to be developed and commissioned faster thanks to powerful simulation tools and reduced programming. iQ Works supports all key iQ control types, whether it’s PLC, motion, or even HMI screen design. All Mitsubishi products are engineered to very high levels of reliability. However if maintenance is required, technicians’ productivity is improved in several ways. The open CC-Link network architecture and iQ Works allows a maintenance technician to troubleshoot an entire network of iQ controllers from one place. Line problems can be quickly located and addressed. If cabinets need to be opened, service personnel arrive prepared to take the correct steps immediately.
