Mitsubishi Electric introduces new remote I/O modules

21 August 2019

The latest slice type I/O modules from Mitsubishi Electric offer helpful features for PLC users in addition to saving space and helping reduce costs. Commissioning is made easier and quicker with fast-fit connections and hot-swap installation, plus, online and onboard software for settings.

Each slice offers a clip-in mounting system, while status LEDs help with visual diagnostics. A width of 11.5 mm means space is saved on the rack, allowing for larger systems to be wired into a smaller panel, up to 64 modules can be connected per row, potentially saving on hardware costs.

Wiring is made much faster and easier thanks to push-in spring clamp terminal blocks. The terminal block itself is detachable, allowing components to be wired-in and then simply plugged in to the I/O block while it is in position, adding convenience and saving time.

Set-up is accessible and flexible using the proprietary software GX Works3 or a dedicated onboard settings tool built into the communication module. The tool includes features such as monitoring/diagnostics and functional tests, helping to reduce engineering time and machine costs.

Communication modules provide connectivity to main European network protocols and can also be used to provide power to a row of I/O modules. Power does not have to be manually wired-in as it is supplied discretely through each slice and there is the option for an extended power supply module. The modules are also hot swappable for fast installation and reduced downtime during system changes.
