  3. Mitsubishi iQ-F Modbus/TCP Master using Predefined Protocols

    The attached file provides a walk-through on using the Predefined Protocol Support function and a Mitsubishi iQ-F (FX5) PLC as a Modbus/TCP Master.  The Predefined Protocol tool provides a power method for talking various protocols where direct functions or function blocks don't exist.  This approach also works on the iQ-R, L series and Q series PLCs.

  4. Mitsubishi FX3 Series Devices Details

    The attached file is an excerpt from the JY997D16601 manual from Mitsubishi.  A common question asked about these PLCs are which devices are battery backed, how do I set that up and configure it etc.

    With these PLCs there are a pre-defined set of battery backed registers and it changes for each model, FX3S, FX3G and FX3U are all different.
    Some example details:
    Input and Output quantities for each series are shown below, as are M bits, D registers, and T timers.  For more information see the attached PDF file or the full manual.

  8. Mitsubishi iQ-F (FX5) to MR-JE-C Servo Amplifier over CC-Link IE Field Network Basic

    The attached file created by Mitsubishi Electric demonstrates how to connect to and control a Mitsubishi MR-JE-C type servo amplifier and motor from an Mitsubishi FX5 (iQ-F) series PLC over CC-Link IE Field Network Basic.   This is an Ethernet based protocol and allows for a powerful and yet cost effective motion solution.  If you do not need coordinated motion, this method provides a high level of control of independent axes quickly and easily.

  13. Mitsubishi iQ-R to Cognex In-Sight Camera via MC Protocol Scanner

    The attached file shows how to connect a Mitsubishi iQ-R or iQ-F series PLC to a Cognex In-Sight Vision System via MC Protocol Scanner.  Similar methodology can be used for the iQ-F series, L series and Q series PLCs and with slight modifications also the FX3 series PLCs.
    This includes libraries for FX5 and iQ-R for CameraStatus and CameraControl blocks.

  15. Mitsubishi iQ-F (FX5) to Mitsubishi Inverter (VFD) via Inverter Protocol

    The attached file shows how to connect a Mitsubishi iQ-F series PLC to a Mitsubishi Inverter (VFD) via Inverter Protocol over RS-485.  This works for all Mitsubishi VFDs with RS-485 built in including the D700, E700, A700 and F700 series.  It also works on the new E800, F800 and A800 series if they are ordered with RS-485 instead of Ethernet.
