Automation platform supports the digital transformation of manufacturing

SPS IPC Drives 2017, 28th –30th November 2017, Nuremberg
Hall 7 / Stand 7-391

Mitsubishi Electric is highlighting the benefits of the PLC as a platform for automation, with a complete set of dedicated CPU modules for the MELSEC iQ-R Series PLC. A CNC CPU module and a robot control CPU now complement the existing options for analogue and digital I/O, motion, positioning, process control, safety and networking, delivering a unique solution that integrates the full suite of control and automation processes onto one common platform.

Providing a complete automation system on a single PLC backplane, the modules provide control capabilities with reduced I/O processing times. Furthermore, direct integration with the PLC along with recent SIL2 (safety integrity level) certification helps to reduce total operation cycle times and guarantee performance levels.

The concept of the automation platform built around the MELSEC iQ-R Series PLC makes it easier for integrators to develop systems, freed from traditional integration challenges, and with significantly reduced commissioning times. It also provides an ideal foundation for smart manufacturing as part of the journey towards Industry 4.0.
