While being intended for smaller
systems, the FX3G still delivers a powerful combination of essential
features, plus more not expected from a controller at this level. These
include; a large program memory to implement sophisticated algorithms, ample
space for data storage, logging or recipes, plus high speed execution to
enhance system productivity. A dual bus architecture provides flexible
expansion possibilities for additional I/O capacity and communication
Easy system integration
The FX3G can operate as a standalone controller,
but for when integration with other system components is required, a range
of standard features makes it stand out from the crowd. Mitsubishi builds in
standard instructions that permit easy control of our inverters over a
precise, reliable digital link. This makes it simple to connect an inverter
such as a FR-D700 to provide more precise motor operation while optimizing
Motion control is also simple to implement. The FX3G provides direct
control of up to three independent axes without any additional hardware.
Hence cost effective multi-axis systems can be built without requiring a
costly controller overhead.
When it comes to increasing the capabilities of an
FX3G, we extend your options while protecting your skills and investments.
The dual bus architecture provides twice as many expansion possibilities
compared to previous designs. On one bus, the FX3G uses additional, familiar
FX family I/O and special function blocks to add a comprehensive variety of
I/O and special function capabilities such as analogue and networking. On
the other system bus, the FX3G uses the existing FX3U special adapters to
provide high performance communication and analog capabilities that are
directly linked to the CPU. This reduces programming while increasing
performance, leading to faster development and higher productivity.
The great communicator
Finally, the FX3G offers you a wide selection of
options when it comes to networking and communications. This begins with
standard serial communication support and builds up to comprehensive
coverage of common open automation networks. These include CC-Link, CANopen,
Profibus-DP and Ethernet. Further, a built-in USB port makes permits
convenient connection to any PC or laptop for high speed program uploads and
downloads along with monitoring.
