1. OVERVIEW
1.1 Overview
This user’s manual describes the specifications, configuration device,
part names and setting, and implementation and installation of the
QA6ADP QA conversion adapter module.
For contents that are not described in this manual such as safety
precautions, EMC and low voltage directives, or error code list, refer to
QCPU User’s Manual (Hardware Design, Maintenance and Inspection)
(SH-080483).
The QA6ADP is the adapter module connecting the A (large type)
series extension base unit to the Q series main base unit.

POINT
• The QA6ADP is CE-compliant. To meet the EMC directive, the extension base unit and
module to be used in combination with the QA6ADP should be CE-compliant.
• When using a control line or communication cable, keep it away from the main circuit or
power line 100mm or more.
Failure to do so may cause malfunction due to noise.

2. SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
2.1 System Configuration
This section describes the system configuration and restrictions when
the QA6ADP is used.
(1) The QA6ADP+A5B/A6B is only applicable for the following
CPU modules.
• High Performance model QCPU
• Universal model QCPU whose serial number (first five digits) is
"13102" or later
(2) Mount the Q5B/Q6B, QA6B, and QA6ADP+A5B/A6B in
order from the nearest position of the main base unit.
The QA6ADP cannot be used in combination with the QA1S5B or
QA1S6B.
(3) The number of slots of the QA6ADP+A5B/A6B is always
displayed in 8 slots, regardless of the number of slots of the
extension base unit to be used in combination with the QA6ADP.
Assign the I/O number of a module, putting each series in block
and in order of "Q seriesA series" or "A seriesQ series".
Failure to do so may cause an error (SP.UNITLAY ERR).
In addition, do not duplicate the I/O number.
(4) For the extension stage number setting of the extension base unit,
set stage number (the first to seventh stages) to extension stages
from the one nearest to the main base unit.
(5) An extension cable connectable to the QA6ADP is the Q series
extension cable only.
(6) Set the same stage number to both the stage number setting
connector of the extension base unit and that of the QA6ADP.
(7) The QA6ADP+A5B/A6B cannot be used as the MELSECNET/
H remote I/O station.

(8) The bus connection with GOT is not available for the
QA6ADP+A5B/A6B.

Using the A-A1S module conversion adapter enables to use modules
equivalent to the AnS module by the module shown in the table. For the
mountable modules, refer to A-A1S Module Conversion Adapter User's
Manual (IB-0800352).
Only the multidrop link function can be used with the A1SJ71UC24R4+A1ADP.
The interrupt module can use only one out of the QI60 (when mounted on the
Q3B, Q5B or Q6B), AI61, and AI61-S1.
The normal operation of A series AC input module can be guaranteed only
when the base unit on which the A series power supply module is mounted
exists in the system.
Make sure that the following condition is satisfied when A series AC input
module is used.
 A series AC input module is mounted on the QA6B or QA6ADP+A6B.
 A series AC input module is mounted on the QA6ADP+A5B. However,
A series compatible extension base unit, QA6B or QA6ADP+A6B,
exists in the system.

This index indicates the degree to which conductive material is generated in
terms of the environment in which the equipment is used.
Pollution level 2 is when only non-conductive pollution occurs. A temporary
conductivity caused by condensing must be expected occasionally.
Do not use or store the programmable controller in the environment when the
pressure is higher than the atmospheric pressure at sea level.
Otherwise, malfunction may result.
To use the programmable controller in high-pressure environment, please
contact your local Mitsubishi Repress entative.

4.2 Extension Stage Number Setting
Set the number of extension stages to both the QA6ADP and the
extension base unit.
The same stage number should be set to both the stage number setting
connector of the extension base unit and that of the QA6ADP.
POINT
Set any number of 1 to 7 which matches to the number of extension stages for the stage
number setting connector setting. If the stage number setting of the QA6ADP and that of the
extension base unit is different, the two or more settings are made to one stage, the same
stage number is duplicated, or no setting is made to the number of stages, incorrect input or
incorrect output will occur.

5.2 Connection/Disconnection of Extension Cable
(1) Precautions for handling an extension cable
• Do not step on an extension cable.
• When laying an extension cable, the minimum bend radius of
the cable should be 55 mm (2.17 inch) or more. If it is less than
55 mm (2.17 inch), malfunction may occur due to characteristic
deterioration, wire break etc.
• When connecting or disconnecting an extension cable, do not
hold ferrite cores mounted at both ends of the cable. In case of
connecting/disconnecting a cable, hold the connector part of the
cable.

Holding a ferrite core may cause cable break inside the connector.
Also, if the ferrite core is shifted, the characteristic will change.
When handling the cable, take care not to change position of the
ferrite core.
(2) Connection of extension cable
The following shows extension cables connectable to the QA6ADP.

POINT
When connecting the base unit of the previous stage and the QA6ADP with an extension
cable, be sure to connect the OUT side connector of the base unit of the previous stage and
the IN side connector of the QA6ADP.
If an extension cable is connected in the wrong way (ININ, OUTOUT or INOUT), the
system will not operate normally.
• To connect an extension cable to the QA6ADP, remove a sticker
on the IN side connector.

• To connect an extension cable to the OUT side connector of the
QA6ADP, remove the portion (lid) under the characters "OUT"
by tools such as a flathead screwdriver (5.5×75, 6×100).

6. PRECAUTION FOR USING QA6ADP
6.1 Current Consumption of QA6ADP
Since 5VDC is supplied to the QA6ADP from the power supply module
of the main base unit, take the current consumption of the QA6ADP into
consideration when selecting the power supply module for the main

In case of the above system, use the QA6ADP when the current
consumption of the power supply module mounted on the main base
unit meets the following formula.
[Calculating formula]
I > I0 + I2 + I3 + IA

6.2 Voltage Drop of Extension Cable
Since 5VDC is supplied to the QA6ADP from the power supply module
mounted on the main base unit, the voltage drop will be caused in the
extension cable.
If the specified voltage (4.75VDC or more) is not supplied to the IN side
connector of the QA6ADP+A5B/A6B, wrong input/output may occur.
When using the QA6ADP, check that the IN side connector of the
QA6ADP+A5B/A6B has 4.75VDC or more.
The following shows an example regarding how to calculate the voltage
drop.

Description
Sum of voltage drop
Voltage drop due to an extension cable between the main base unit and the QA6B
Voltage drop due to an extension cable between the extension base unit (n-1th
extension stage) and the extension base unit (nth extension stage)
Resistance value of a cable between the main base unit and the extension base unit
QA6B
Resistance value of an extension cable between the extension base unit (n-1th
extension stage) and the extension base unit (nth extension stage)
Current consumption (5VDC) at the first to the third extension base units*1
Current consumption of the QA6ADP
18
*1
Current consumption at each extension base unit is as follows:
First extension base unit: None
Second extension base unit: IA+I2
Third extension base unit: IA
Since the first extension base unit and the third extension base unit are
supplied from the power supply module on each extension base unit, the
values are not included above.
Since the current consumptions I1 to I3 vary depending on modules to be
mounted, refer to the manual for the module to be mounted.
[Calculating formula]
V = V1 + V2 + V3 = R1 (I2 + IA 2) + R2 (I2 + IA 2) + R3 IA
The minimum value of the 5VDC output voltage of the power supply module
mounted on the main base unit is set to 4.90VDC. Therefore, the voltage of
the IN side connector of the QA6ADP+A5B/A6B in the final stage is
4.75VDC or more only when the sum (V) of voltage drop is 0.15V or less.
