A solution for
every application
Micro PLCs have opened up a world of
opportunities in Industrial Automation
due to their small size and low cost. Now
many applications benefit from enhanced
performance, easier manufacturing,
maintenance and greater reliability.
The FX Family has been apart of this
revolution for over 25 years and has
developed and redeveloped a range of
products to suit most applications. The FX
Family consists of four main ranges which
are distinct and independent but
compatible.
Adapters add
flexibility
FX3U a new
PLC concept
A major design enhancement of FX3U is
the new adapter expansion bus on the left
hand side of the FX3U CPU. Through this
bus users can add additional analog and
temperature units as well as multiple
communications and positioning blocks.
The new FX3U CPU brings a combination
of greater flexibility and increased
performance to the FX Family.
New high
speed bus
The FX3U design has increased the
opportunity to configure the PLC directly
for your needs.
Following the standard FX Family
configuration, the FX3U CPU can be
expanded to the right hand side using a
wide range of options.These include input
and output blocks as well as special
function blocks such as analog, pulse train
and network communication units.
FX3U has a unique new system of directly
programmable adapters.
However, the major benefit for the user is
that the analog and positioning adapter
units no longer require the use of the
traditional To/From instruction to
configure and operate.
All control is through direct access data
registers and setting bits. This means
quicker set-up, easier use, and above all
much higher processing speeds.
Depending on your application and
control needs, you can choose from; the
simple FX1S CPU, the modular FX1N range,
the powerful FX2N and now the new and
dynamic FX3U.
With the FX Family there really is a solution
to most applications.

This means greater support for existing
installed systems as well as delivering high
performance and greater response with
new installations.
FX2N
Advanced control, multiple
communication possibilities and
a wide range of options still
make this PLC an industry leader.
The FX3U can use new FX3U blocks as well as
standard FX2N and FX0N expansion blocks..

users, this means increased system control
and added possibilities for advanced
networks.
With a larger program memory comes the
need for more operational devices such as
timers, state flags, auxiliary relays and data
registers. The FX3U has increased capacity
in all of these major areas making
program construction easier. Data register
capacity has increased by a factor of 5
reflecting the needs of users who have an
increased requirement to log operation

this requires increased data handling and
data capacity within the PLC.
Some examples of new instructions from
the FX3U.
Simple high
speed
positioning
The FX3U has been designed with six high
speed counters that can each count up to
100kHz simultaneously per channel. This,
combined with three 100kHz pulse train
outputs, means users can directly
configure simple 3-axis positioning
systems without the use of additional
modules.
However, the new high speed counter
ADP and Pulse train ADPs can provide the
FX3U with maximum positioning
performance. Each unit can process signal
speeds of up to 200kHz.
Over 75 new
instructions
The FX3U has more than 75 new
instructions in comparison with FX2N.This
now makes available 249 instructions for
program creation. All of the instructions
follow the traditional FX Applied
instruction concept designed to make the
task of application building and program
writing easier and quicker, with less
chance for errors.

FX Family PLCs are used in many applications for processing and packaging as well chilled
storage and transportion of food items.
The FX1N provides a simple introduction
to modular micro control offering
comprehensive
functionality
and
expansion options.
Compatibility
cuts costs
The FX1N provides many user benefits
including excellent compatibility with
other FX Family PLCs. The FX1N is
upwardly compatible to the FX2N using
many of the FX2Ns I/O and special
function blocks. It also shares the same
programming structure as the FX1S. This
means that users benefit from learning
and using one PLC programming syntax;
resulting in faster program development
and reduced programming errors.
In addition, users benefit from a reduced
stock and spare parts requirement as the
FX1N uses the same expansion boards as
the FX1S and the same special function
and expansion I/O blocks as the FX2N.
Powerful
performance
The FX1N offers comprehensive expansion
options.
The FX1N saves space, cost and
engineering time with the use of
powerful, built in, positioning tools such
two 100kHz pulse train outputs and up to
two 60kHz high speed counters.These can
be used to create simple 2-axis positioning
systems, linked to servo amplifiers or
stepper motor drivers without the need for
additional PLC hardware saving space, cost
and engineering time.

The FX1S has an additional range of BD
expansion boards providing RS232,
RS485 and RS422 communications
options. These could be used to connect
and control various third party products
such as bar code readers or panel printers.
The Mitsubishi FX PLC Family has a
worldwide reputation for reliability,
performance and ease of use. These key
values have also been used to form
Mitsubishi’s integrated software concept,
MELSOFT.
Simple
programming
Productivity
tools
The FX Family has a simple programming
structure combining Basic and Applied
instructions. The Basic instructions are
common to all FX Family PLCs. Applied
instructions provide the specialist control
options such as data comparisons, PID
and communications control, all of which
are available on FX1S. As each FX PLC
range increases in capability (FX1S, FX1N,
FX2N, FX3U) so do the number of available
Applied instructions.
Programming software for PLCs is
constantly evolving. Users are placing
more focus on reusable program code
and function block concepts. This helps
to reduce errors, reduce programming
time and to help manage the whole
programming process – increasing overall
productivity.
Choose what
you need
GX Developer offers users the chance to
program all Mitsubishi MELSEC PLCs from
a single package. However, for users who
only need support for FX based systems,
GX Developer FX is available.
First time user?
For users who do not have the time to
take local training, there is the option of
using Mitsubishi’s home study software,
FX-TRN-BEG, where PLC programs can be
created, simulated and debugged in the
safety of a PC simulation.
MELSOFT is a wide range of software
solutions designed to optimize your plant
productivity.
FX1S at a glance
FX1S has been used in a wide range of embedded control applications.
Fit and forget
FX1S offers communication and real time
control from a single unit.
Typically FX1S applications are small,
embedded control functions that are
hidden away or unaccessible under
normal maintenance activities. This is why
the FX1S has been designed to be a
robust low maintenance PLC. Features
such as the maintenance free, 2000 step
EEPROM memory and real time clock
management all help to make the
FX1S a self managing system, reducing
the impact on the maintenance engineer.

Networking and
communication solutions
Remote
maintenance
With communications technology it is
now possible to put PLC control in the
most remote locations. Using a PLC with a
RS232 interface to a telemetry solution,
such as a GSM modem, allows the user the
ability to remotely monitor and maintain
the system. It can also allow the remote
system to send alarm messages, warnings
or general status information back to the
users central data processing centre
FX Family PLCs have a wide range of communications options.
Applications are often required to
integrate between each other across a
factory, to report production or tracking
data back for office based processing and
in some cases be remotely monitored and
maintained when the application is in an
inaccessible location. The FX Family of
PLCs has evolved to match this demand at
all levels.
Networks
make sense
Networked solutions to complex
applications often make the overall
solution easier to achieve and more cost
effective. For example a conveyor system
integrated with a warehouse pick and
place system may extend over many
hundreds of meters, and by using a
fieldbus, such as CC-Link, wiring,
troubleshooting and maintenance can be
dramatically reduced.
Example of remote pumping station.
Easy
communications
Today’s FX Family of PLCs share a basic
communication concept where additional
RS232, RS422 or RS485 communications
boards can be added to the main
base unit without increasing the required
cabinet space. These can then be used for
communication to various third party
devices like bar code readers, printers
and modems.
Analog solutions
Analog control is one of the most
important areas for any automation
system. Critically for users the concern is to
match the performance demanded by the
application to the available solutions in a
cost effective way.
Inverter
Example: D-A
control can be
used to set the
speed of an
inverter driving
a motor.
Where is
analog used?
Analog control is widely used. In simple
terms it allows a variable signal to be used
to control items such as a motors speed or
to sense inputs such as fluid levels.
Example:
Temperature
control keeps
the liquid at the
correct viscosity.
■ Digital to analog (D-A) control
Here a digital PLC value is output as an
analog signal. It can be used, for example,
to send a speed command to an inverter
which in turn causes the motor to increase
or decrease speed.
Example:
A-D control
can be used to
control the
filling speed of
the container.
■ Analog to digital (A-D) control
In this type of control a variable signal is
sent to a PLC where it is converted in to a
direct digital value. An example of this
could be the measurement of the level of
a liquid in a storage tank so that the exact
amount of stored liquid can be controlled
by the PLC.
■ Temperature control
Temperature control is the third type of
analog control. An example of use could
be where the temperature of a furnace is
measured and compared by the PLC
against a set range. Additional heating or
cooling can then be applied to maintain a
constant temperature.
Analog solutions are an important part of control engineering and can be used to simplify and
accurately control actions happening in the production environment.
16 solutions to
choose from
The FX Family offers a wide range of
analog solutions from 1 and 2 channel BD
boards for FX1S up to 8 channel input
blocks like the FX2N-8AD where
temperature, voltage and current input
can be mixed on the same block. FX
analog blocks also come in a range of
resolutions from 8 bit up to 16 bit signal
processing. Overall there are 16 different
analog options available to users of the FX
PLC Family.
FX Family PLCs, such as FX1N, FX2N
and FX3U, have a wider range of
communications modules. These include
options for connection to open and
bespoke networks such as CC-Link, and
ASi for example.
With this range of choice and flexibility it is
sure that there will be a solution here for
most applications.
Example of temperature control.

Simple positioning solutions can be effectively managed within a standard FX PLC.
Display solutions
The larger the range of output pulse
frequencies available means greater
speed and/or accuracy is achievable. For
example, if a stepper motor with a larger
number of steps is used, the travel
distance per step can be reduced,
resulting in an increased system accuracy.
An increasingly important area of any
automation solution is the reporting and
display of operational information. This
data enables operators, maintenance
teams and business managers to make
informed decisions in the best interests of
the business.
■ High speed counter input
When a motor is being driven, its relative
position can be controlled by counting
the number of output pulses.
The right tool
for the right job
However, for a more accurate process,
reading the actual position from an
encoder feedback directly into a high
speed counter is preferred. This helps to
overcome issues of backlash and slippage
as the actual position is measured and
not assumed.
For maximum efficiency, each user
requires access to information at their
work place in a form that highlights the
important data for them first.This means a
range of different tools are required. As an
example, here are three possible scenarios.
Positioning built
in as standard
Machines often have a lot of
manufacturing debris around or are
subject to hygienic cleaning as in the food
industry. Any display located in this
environment would need to have a high
Ingress Protection (IP) rating, indicating a
high degree of waterproofness.
FX PLCs come with high speed counters
(in some cases up to 100kHz) and pulse
train outputs (also in some cases up to
100kHz) as standard. The high speed
counters can be configured in single
pulse train inputs, The high speed
counters can be configured in a single or
two phase input.
Using simple positioning solutions can
help increase the accuracy of the work
process, reduce waste and rework as well
as provide a higher quality of production.
Pulse train ouputs can be configured to
provide continuous pulse streams at
different frequencies or a set quantity of
pulses at a single frequency.
Typical
applications
There are also optional modules and
adapters that can provide additional high
speed counters with performance up to
200kHz. The same is true for pulse train
outputs with 200kHz and 1Mpps (1MHz)
output options available.
■ The machine operator
15
■ Pulse train outputs
A stream of output pulses can be used as
a drive signal to a line driver, stepper
motor or servo amplifier, which then
causes the connected motor to perform
the positioning activity.
Example of conveyor belt control.
The FX3U-7DM can be directly mounted
within the PLC (FX3U) or mounted on the
front cabinet.
■ The business manager
In a production controllers office it would
be better to display information through a
network to their existing desktop PC. In
this application a piece of software such
as an OPC server/client, a Java applet, an
Active X control or a SCADA system would
allow lots of data from lots of sources to
be displayed in a clear and concise way
giving the production controller the
overview of the business operation that
they need.
Data the way
you want it
In the food industry hygiene is very important.
Simple positioning applications typically
involve
independently
controlled
operational axis and can sometimes have
many requirements. In the example of an
X-Y table, a relative position is achieved by
driving each axis until its target position is
achieved, regardless of what happens with
the other axis. There are two main
elements to achieve this type of
positioning control.
Access to this data could be through the
machine operator's terminal, across a
network or through a dedicated display
mounted inside or on the control
cabinet itself.
It may also be a benefit to the operator to
have a large and clear display to reduce
the chances for error from misreading, due
to poor light or small fonts being used. It is
also recognized that the use of graphics
also reduces the chances for reading
errors with complex data.
Mitsubishi Electric offers a comprehensive
range of visualization solutions from
simple data displays such as the
FX3U-7DM, advanced Graphic Operator
Terminals like the GOT1000 Series, and a
wide choice of software solutions from
the MELSOFT software suite.
This powerful combination of hardware
and software means there is a cost
effective solution for most applications.
■ The maintenance team
The critical information for a maintenance
engineer is the error and diagnostic data
within the PLC as this is used to diagnose
any process problems. However, additional
information regarding the operational
"hours run" or cycles processed, which
could be called soft information as it is
calculated on operational parameters,
could allow the maintenance engineer to
predict possible failure and arrange
