What software do I need to program my Mitsubishi PLC?

Bryon Sol


A very common question is "what software do I need to purchase to program my PLC?".

Luckily with Mitsubishi, the answer is simple.  GX Works3.

As of the release of the iQ-F (FX5) and iQ-R series PLCs, Mitsubishi released their newest programming platform, GX Works3.  And the best part is, when you buy it, you get the two previous programming platforms with it.  You also get GX Works2 and GX Developer, all for one price and the price is the same as GX Works2 was, so you are paying the same as you used to and you are getting 3 packages.

So which package do you need for which PLC?

Use the following chart:


*** there is a compatibility mode whereby GX Works 3 will open Q or L or FX3 series projects that is not noted in this chart
