Automation Platforms

Mitsubishi offers Automation Platforms including modular PLCs to multi-disipline PACs.  The L Series is a powerful but compact modular controller with many features built-in to the CPU itself. The rack-free design promotes high system flexibility with minimum form factor.   The iQ Platform unifies all of the Mitsubishi Electric automation disciplines into a one-of-a-kind modular Programmable Automation Controller (PAC).

The iQ Platform is the only PAC capable of integrating individual Sequence, Motion, CNC, and Robot control onto a single back-plane rack.

Compact PLCs

The FX Series compact PLC has evolved for over a quarter century, providing solutions to customers from a diverse range of industries. With its proven track record of outstanding quality and reliability, the FX Series continues its tradition of excellence as the world's compact PLC of choice.

The FX family contains several independent yet compatible controllers

HMI Operator Terminals

Mitsubishi GT1000 HMI PlatformThe GOT1000 platform is a family of high performance Graphical Operator Terminals (GOT). This platform is divided into two classes of HMI – Basic and Advanced. Basic models offer a long list of features and functions commonly found in many small standalone systems and applications. Advanced models, add increased innovation and functionality, flexibility and networking capabilities to address the needs of larger, more complex systems. The GOT1000 platform of HMIs offers a wide selection of display types (TFT and STN), sizes (ranging from 5.7” to 15”) and formats (available in both panel mount and pendant style) to not only meet but exceed your application requirement.

Servo Motion

Mitsubishi MR-JN Servo SystemMitsubishi's offers a wide range of Servo Motion capabilities.  The MR-J3 has raised the bar for servo speed and performance with a capacity range of 50W to 55kW, we reduced the size of both the amplifier and motor, added a high resolution encoder and advanced auto-tuning and vibration control.  With even higher positioning accuracy and responsiveness, the MR-E Super is an excellent choice for applications ranging from 100W to 2kW.  The MR-J2-JR supports the following control methods: Position, Speed, Torque, SSCNET Network, Built-In Motion, and RS-485 Multi Drop.

Robots

Mitsubishi RV-F Vertically Articulated RobotsMitsubishi Electric’s line of MELFA Robots covers a wide spectrum of configurations and capacities that are ideal for small to medium robot applications. As part of the Mitsubishi Electric family of world class automation products, MELFA robots integrate directly to complete a single-source automation solution.  The MELFA robots include Vertically Articulated, SCARA and Ceiling Mounted robot configurations.

Inverters

Mitsubishi offer a wide range of Variable Frequency Drives, from the cost-cost effective variable speed control solution for general purpose applications to the the A700,a high performance drive that features many of the special technologies originally developed for Mitsubishi Electric servo drive products, such as adaptive auto-tuning that automatically compensates for changes in load inertia. The result is smoother operation, less downtime and ultimately, lower operating costs. Control modes include Velocity, Torque and Positioning.

Software

Mitsubishi Electric brand Software (MELSOFT) provides customers with an integrated product suite which reduce the total cost of ownership and speeds time-to-market.  MELSOFT products are used throughout the automation asset’s lifecycle.  During the Engineering stage, MELSOFT products are used to design systems encompassing the entire portfolio of automation products.  Powerful simulation tools are used to reduce programming and debug time.  Machine operators benefit from visualization products to further increase operation efficiencies.

   

Mitsubishi

Building on Mitsubishi Electric’s tradition of technological leadership and innovation for more than 75 years, the company merged three existing automation product business units to form Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. on January 1, 1997.

The sole mission of Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc, is to support the automation needs of North and Latin American customers with combined sales, marketing, service, engineering and manufacturing resources. This focused approach is being completed through a facility located in Vernon Hills, IL where all aspects of automation support can be maintained, including manufacturing, engineering, training, customer service, repair, sales and warehousing functions.

As one of many Mitsubishi automation affiliates around the world, Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc., is part of a $40 billion global company serving a wide variety of industrial markets with a family of automation products including programmable logic controllers, variable frequency drives, operator interfaces, motion control systems, computer numerical controls, uninterruptible power supplies, industrial robots, servo amplifiers and motors, and industrial sewing machines.
