The AnS/QnAS Series modules can gradually be replaced to fully establish a Q Series system. Existing AnS/QnAS Series Step 1 Q Series QA Extension Base Unit QA1S65B QA1S68B QA1S51B Q Series extension cable Existing AnS/QnAS Series power supply modules, I/O modules, and other modules can be utilized; wiring is left as it is. Step 2 Q Series Entire replacement with the Q Series ●Remove the QA extension base unit (QA1S□B) when all modules have been replaced with Q Series equivalents. ●It is recommended to use QA1S□B extension base units to gradually upgrade from AnS/QnAS Series system to Q Series system while using the assets of AnS/QnAS series system (The QA1S□B extension base units are compatible with High Performance Model QCPUs and Universal Model QCPUs whose ﬁrst ﬁve digits of the serial number are 13102 or later. Basic Model QCPUs, Process CPUs, Redundant CPUs, Safety CPUs and Remote I/O Stations are not compatible). ●Some modules cannot be mounted on the QA1S□B extension base units. For details, see the "QCPU User's Manual (Hardware Design, Maintenance and Inspection) (SH(NA)-080473ENG)". 9 ●No further extensions can be made to QA1S51B as it has not got an Extension Cable Connector. This unit cannot be used in conjunction with QA6□B and QA6ADP with A5□B nor can QA6ADP be used in conjunction with A6□B. ■Reduce conversion eﬀort by using the same I/O addressing.
