Technical Tip – FX5U (IQ-F) built in High Speed Counter Function

FX5U (IQ-F) built in High Speed Counter Function.

 

 

If you are having troubles setting up high speed counters, you can follow this Mitsubishi guide

as the programming is somewhat different to an FX3 PLC.

PLCs of the FX range have historically allowed high speed signals (faster than the scan time)

to be connected to a group of the PLCs inputs. Whilst it is still possible to use equivalents of

the traditional high speed counter functions C235 to C255, LC35 to LC 55, similar functions

are available using the HIOEN function. The advantages of this instruction are that it uses a

parameterisation approach, uses Special Registers and Special Relays for its internal

resources, saving programming and reducing use of other resources.

This example shows the steps needed to enable a high speed counter function using CH1,

which is the hardware input X0.

MELFA Robots

 

 

 

On this year’s Drives and Control Stand Mitsubishi previewed a prototype of the new MELFA CoBOT. This arm will be aimed at the collaborative robot market offering increased rapidity and higher IP rating than the competition as well as easy to use software, direct teaching and collision detection. Mitsubishi showcased a MELFA Robot mounted on an automated guided vehicle (AGV) showing alternatives to conceptual uses for these products.

iQ-F firmware update, NEW FEATURES

           iQ-F firmware update, new features

One of the great features of the iQ-F range is that we can update the CPU’s firmware, giving customers the ability to take advantage of new features and performance enhancements even on existing installations.

The latest version is 1.060 and is available for download from the MyMitsubishi site. Installation is simple and is executed    using a standard SD memory card. The best place to check how to update the iQ-F is in the e-manual (just search for “firmware update function” in the iQ-F FX5 User’s Manual (application)).

The attached document contains more details plus additional information about the new FX5 analogue modules that were recently added to the range.
