iQ Works

iQ Works is an integrated software suite consisting of GX Works3, MT Works2, GT Works3, RT ToolBox3 and FR Configurator2, which are used to program Mitsubishi Electric automation products. Software integration is enhanced with Navigator as the central system configuration incorporating an easy-to-use, graphical user interface with additional project-sharing features such as system labels and parameters. The advantages of this powerful integrated software suite are that system design is made much easier with a substantial reduction in repetitious tasks, cutting down on errors while helping to reduce the overall TCO.

GX Works2

GX Works consists of various different components that help to simplify project creation and maintenance tasks. A system design console that enables projects to be created at the system overview stage has been added. Additionally, the main programming languages are supported and their labels (variables) are shared, further simplifying programming. Various debug and maintenance features are also included.

The engineering software GX Works2 has been developed to allow programming, debugging and maintenance operations, etc., to be carried out easily by anyone with intuitive operations. Its comfortable operation environment further improves design efficiency.

International Standard IEC 61131-3 compliant.

GX Works3

GX Works consists of various different components that help to simplify project creation and maintenance tasks. A system design console that enables projects to be created at the system overview stage has been added. Additionally, the main programming languages are supported and their labels (variables) are shared, further simplifying programming. Various debug and maintenance features are also included.

The engineering software is sometimes considered a fundamental part of the control system in addition to the hardware components. The core of the system, it includes various steps of the product life cycle, from the design stage all the way to commissioning and maintenance of the control system. Today, intuitive, easy-to-use software suites are expected as a standard for modern manufacturing needs. GX Works3 is the latest generation of programming and maintenance software offered by Mitsubishi Electric specifically designed for the MELSEC iQ-R and MELSEC iQ-F Series control system. It includes many new features and technologies to ensure a trouble-free engineering environment solution.

CC-Link IE TSN Product Catalog

The CC-Link IE TSN module can operate either as a master or local station. Control communication requiring real-time performance and TCP/IP communication can be mixed, maximizing CC-Link IE TSN performance and functionality.

Supporting standard Ethernet enables various network-compatible devices and diagnostic software to be used, realizing an integrated network infrastructure that is easy to maintain. Ethernet communications supporting TCP/IP communication such as information that has been collected and analyzed by edge devices and IT systems can be mixed in the same line with the real-time control communications of CC-Link IE TSN.

CC-Link IE Product Catalog

General, motion and safety control integrated into one network CC-Link IE incorporates generic distributed control, synchronous motion control, and safety control enabling safety communications across multiple safety devices, all on the same network. The
topology is quite versatile, based on twisted-pair cables, which enables flexibility in system configuration while helping to keep installation cost low.

The Automation Book

Mitsubishi Electric Factory Automation is synonymous with innovative, high quality products. Our programmable logic controllers, drive solutions and industrial robots are among the most powerful on the market, and have been contributing to the success of European manufacturing for over 35 years.

In the world of manufacturing, change is omnipresent. To ensure our products reflect the current needs of customers, we base every aspect of product development and production on the voice of the market. To keep our high levels of product reliability, we incorporate a quality control program that leaves nothing to chance, resulting in the high level of quality synonymous with the Mitsubishi Electric name.

Mitsubishi Electric products are widely regarded as being among the most innovative in the industry. In terms of volume, one in three PLCs in the world today is a Mitsubishi Electric. Indeed, some of our competitors use Mitsubishi Electric’s innovative power management technology in their own frequency inverters.

When all these factors are taken together, it is no  wonder our customers think of Mitsubishi Electric’s automation products as leading the market.

MELSEC Consolidated Catalog

The MELSEC (Mitsubishi ELectric SEquence Control) brand is well known in the automation industry for robust quality and excellent performance that realizes a reduction in total cost of ownership (TCO). The MELSEC lineup consists of various products, the flagship products being the MELSEC-Q Series and recently introduced MELSEC iQ-R Series.

These high-end programmable controllers, mainly used for controlling processes in manufacturing lines and advanced machines are complimented by small- to medium-sized controllers like the MELSEC-L Series, MELSEC-F Series and the new MELSEC iQ-F Series, which are commonly utilized for cell manufacturing and stand-alone applications.

CC-Link Troubleshooting Guidance

Use of CC-Link has increased in FA fields with its outstanding high-speed and stable performance. The release of products compatible with “CC-Link Ver. 2”, having increased data volume, has made it possible to support various needs. We have prepared this Troubleshooting Guidance as reference for CC-Link users. Follow the procedures below when troubleshooting.

This guide includes the preliminary confirmation items, such as the system configuration, and the methods for confirming the trouble symptoms, to further clarify the troubleshooting procedures. CC-Link diagnosis using GX Works2/GX Developer is an easy way to confirm the symptoms. The methods for confirming with the link special register (SW) and buffer memory, and simple confirmation methods based on the LED status are also explained for situations when CC-Link diagnosis cannot be used.
