  1. Mitsubishi CC-Link networks have grown substantially over the past decade and it’s no wonder that there is some confusion on the various versions. This blog is to give a quick overview and hopefully clear up some of what can be rather muddy waters. Let’s start with what CC-Link is: CC-Link is a FAMILY of protocols created and maintained by the CC-Link Partner Association (https://www.cc-link.org/) Very much like other industrial communication protocols, it is used to communicate between industrial devices. CC-Link is also an open standard meaning that it is not controlled by Mitsu

    This example shows how easy it is to set up recipe files controlled by name without having to create a lookup table on the PLC. The recipe data is stored on an SD card in CSV format for easy offline viewing, editing, or sharing. It can be used on GT models with SD card readers and the GS models.
  4. Did you know that Mitsubishi FR-A800, FR-E800 and FR-F800 series Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) include built-in Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) functionality? That’s right, the VFDs/Inverters that you are used to using to drive your 3-phase motors have a built-in PLC that can be enabled to do logic control without an external device. Not only this, but you can add extra input and outputs via add-on cards to expand the functionality. Let’s look at a simple example – the E800 VFD This new inverter from Mitsubishi comes in two different styles, the classic serial con

    The attached file shows how to connect a Mitsubishi iQ-R 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.
  9. As yet another example of the amazing flexibility and power that Mitsubishi’s iQ-F Controller, Mitsubishi has now added Sequential Function Chart programming to the FX5U and FX5UC compact, cost effective PLCs. If you have been a PLC programmer for a long time you have probably programmed in ladder logic, and most likely Function Block Diagram languages (FBD) which has also been called Structured Ladder programming. You might have even used Structured text (ST) programming. But have you ever tried SFC? If you have a project where the machine acts very sequentially, SFC can’t be beat for mak

    The attached file details how to use Collision Avoidance with a Mitsubishi D series controller for the F and FR series Industrial Robots. A great way to prevent the arm from hitting the guarding in compact work cells.
  13. Okay - this is tough because it depends on how you are connecting on your PC side and how you are connecting on your PLC side, and new products get added and things change, but here's a general summary. Generally speaking this can be simplified: If you are on a PLC from the last 5-10 years (it's 2020 now) then mini-USB is probably available on the PLC, if mini-USB is not available, then Ethernet is with the exception of the FX3U and the Alpha. So this includes FX3S, FX3G, L Series, Q Series and R Series released in the last 10 years If you are working with an FX1S, FX1N, FX2N
  14. While this doesn't cover absolutely everything this is a good start at a listing of the most common batteries needed for Mitsubishi PLCs.
  15. 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?
  16. There is always debate about when Mitsubishi’s new servo amplifiers such as MR-J4 and MR-JE CC-Link IE Field Basic should be used? To understand this you need to step back and understand what functionality they bring to the wealth of product offering Mitsubishi has in their toolbox. The biggest advantage is that there is no need for extra motion control modules. It is based on CC-link IE Field protocol which in a full functionality mode is a Gigabit based deterministic protocol over Ethernet. However, IE Field Basic is not deterministic so speed might be a consideration when deciding if this i

    The attached file is includes GOT project files, PLC project files and a writeup on how to control your Mecademic Meca 500 from a Mitsubishi FX5 (iQ-F) PLC using the built-in front ethernet port. This could be ported for use with an L, Q or iQ-R PLC with minimal effort.
  18. Let’s say you are trying to implement a pick and place application with your robot. Industrial robots are amazing in terms of going to the place they were told to go. But what if that place we told them to go changes constantly and we don’t know where the part is going to be next time around. That’s when we use machine vision’s help to guide our robot to the right pick location. The general idea is that a vision system needs to be looking at the potential pick locations, and tell the robot where to go and pick up the next part. I’m sure a lot of you would agree that co

    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.

    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.
  25. Version 1.0.0

    The attached file created by Mitsubishi Electric demonstrates how to control an MR-J4-GF servo amplifier over CC-Link IE Field Network Basic. This protocol is available out of the front Ethernet port of the FX5 series, L series, Q series and iQ-R series PLCs without any extra hardware. It is a great option for lower cost motion when interpolated motion is not required.
