Highly accurate synchronization
The MELSEC iQ-R Series system provides highly accurate synchronization between modules on the control
system which is realized through inter-modular synchronization. Additionally, use of the CC-Link IE Field
Network realizes network-level synchronization, providing node-level synchronization that ensures
deterministic data flow void of any influence from data transmission delays. This is ideal for applications
such as “cutting and folding” inside an offset printer, which requires synchronization between the printing
quality sensor, high-speed rotary cutter, folding roller and conveyor.

Intuitive root cause analysis
When the SD memory card is installed, device data is saved automatically to the SD memory at the time of
system failure. This data is useful for investigating the cause of the failure, enabling various data collected
before and during the event to be analyzed. The data can be used in a situation such as when the origin of
a machine is different than where the machine was actually being used, and the data can simply be sent by
e-mail (for example) as a data file for analysis.

Gain more flexibility with an integrated system bus structure
L Series modules do not require a base unit. Having an integrated
system bus structure, the L Series can be attached directly to a DIN rail
by using the minimal required space. Furthermore, adding modules to
the system is not restricted by the number of available base unit slots,
and costs may be reduced due to the elimination of extension base
units.
Improved debugging for system startup and troubleshooting
Device values in the CPU can be monitored in real-time with a detailed setting including interval and timing.
Additionally, changes in the device value can be monitored within the GX LogViewer trend graph and are
exportable to a computer for further analysis.

The MELSEC safety programmable controller is an ISO certified safety controller that ensures safety at
production sites. Often connected to safety devices, such as emergency stop switches and light curtains,
the safety programmable controller disconnects the power supplied to an abnormally operated machine,
for example to a robot, which could be a danger to the whole system if left alone. A safety shutoff sequence
program can be custom made by the user. The safety programmable controller is different from a general
programmable controller in a way that it performs self-diagnosis. When a failure is detected in the
self‑diagnosis, the safety programmable controller automatically and forcefully turns its safety outputs off.
This means that any unsafe status will be never left alone.
