FA Integrated Engineering Software
MELSOFT iQ Works
MELSOFT iQ Works is an integrated software suite consisting of GX Works3, MT Works2, GT Works3,
RT ToolBox2 mini and FR Configurator2, which are programming software for each respective product. Integration is
further enhanced with MELSOFT Navigator as the central system configuration incorporating an easy‑to‑use, graphical
user interface with additional project-sharing features such as system labels and parameters. The advantages of
this powerful integrated software suite are that system design is made much easier with a substantial reduction in
repetitious tasks, cutting down on errors while helping to reduce the overall TCO.

Reducing development costs
through intuitive engineering
The engineering software is sometimes considered a fundamental part of the control system in addition to the
hardware components. The core of the system, it includes various steps of the product life cycle, from the design stage
all the way to commissioning and maintenance of the control system. Today, intuitive, easy‑to‑use software suites are
expected as a standard for modern manufacturing needs. GX Works3 is the latest generation of programming and
maintenance software offered by Mitsubishi Electric specifically designed for the MELSEC iQ-R Series control system.
It includes many new features and technologies to ensure a trouble‑free engineering environment solution.

System design with a
convenient parts library
Most projects start from system
design, so having a software
application that caters to this initial
stage is important. GX Works3
incorporates a system design feature
that enables system components
to be assembled directly in the
programming software. It includes a
parts library consisting of MELSEC
iQ-R Series modules that can be
used to simplify system creation.

Another useful feature is the ability
to register parameters automatically.
Simply double-click on the desired
module and the corresponding
parameters will be registered in the
project. A window with an easy-to-use
parameter settings screen opens,
enabling module parameters to be
modified as needed.
MELSOFT GX Works3
Integrated motion setup tool
GX Works3 is equipped with a special motion setup tool that makes it easy to change simple motion module settings
such as module parameters, positioning data and servo parameters. Also, debugging is simplified using the fine-tuning
cam data generation feature.

Just "select" to create a program
Global and local variables (labels)
are supported providing an easy
way to share device names across
multiple projects, other MELSOFT
software and third party SCADA.
The variables can be registered into
either the current program, function
block as a local variable or within the
project as a global variable to share
across multiple programs within the
same project. Variables specific to a
particular module are also available,
and can be used immediately, further
reducing engineering time and cost.
MELSOFT GX Works3
Main programming languages supported
The main IEC languages are supported by GX Works3. Various different programming languages can be used within
the same project simultaneously and can be viewed easily via the menu tab. The variables and devices used in each
program can be shared across multiple platforms, with user defined function blocks supported.

debugging processes. Even with a
number of engineers are working
on the same project, changes made
are easily recognized directly from
the program or as an automatically
generated verification results list.
This feature is available for locally
