The new FX3U series is the third
generation of Mitsubishi Electric's successful compact PLC family. Developed
for the international market, the new controllers feature a special second "adapter
bus" system, which complements the existing system bus used for
expansion, special function and network modules. Up to ten additional
modules can be connected to this new adapter bus.
The FX3U controllers also impress with their speed (0.065µs per
logical instruction), a significantly larger instruction set with a total of
209 instructions and improved functions and modules, particularly for
positioning tasks. Other improvements include enhanced communications
capabilities with Ethernet, USB and RS-422 mini DIN connectors.
The enhanced networking support has also increased the I/O capacity of the
new flagship model, which can now be expanded to a maximum of 384 I/Os,
including networked connections.
