Mitsubishi Launch New L-Series Modular PLC

The Mitsubishi L-Series is a powerful but compact modular controller (PLC) with many features built-in to the CPU itself. With its excellent cost performance and usability, it is ideal for use in mid-size control applications.

High system flexibility

The rack-free design promotes high system flexibility with minimum form factor. The single-CPU architecture includes built-in Ethernet and Mini-USB interfaces, a SD/SDHC memory card slot for program storage and data logging, and 24 digital I/O for simple high-speed counting and positioning functions. The high-performance CPU also includes a CC-Link V2 Master/Local station for CC-Link connection.

Alongside the built-in functionality, the CPU can also be supplemented with up to 10 extension and special function modules for additional digital and analog I/Os, highspeed counters, communications interfaces, Simple Motion, positioning etc.

The compact size, easy expandability, networking capabilities, and multitude of built-in high-powered functions makes the Mitsubishi L-Series an ideal PLC for both stand-alone machines and networked stations in larger applications.

Data logging

The built-in data logging function provides an easy way to collect information for troubleshooting, performance evaluation, and other uses. A configuration tool is included as standard which makes setting up the data logging function a breeze, with a step-by-step wizard like interface. Using GX LogViewer, the captured data is easy to interpret and understand.

USB and Ethernet as standard

The built-in USB 2.0 port or Ethernet interface can be used to connect directly at the installation site. The Ethernet interface supports direct connection and does not require any configuration of the PLC or PC to operate.

Advanced programming software

Mitsubishi GX Works2 software represents the next generation in PLC maintenance and programming software and is perfectly suited to programming the Mitsubishi L-Series.
