In current years have seen a huge enlarge in the use of PC technology in the systems of automation. Mitsubishi has currently reacted to this movement with a PC-based control system, that is innovative Slot PLC. A part power supply and its own operating system create the Slot PLC completely autonomous from both the Windows operating system and the computer hardware for maximum reliability.
Outstanding rates of fail safe performance and high MTBF
Eventhough PC operating system collapses and power crashes don’t put off the Slot PLC – it in no way neglects a loses or beat control of your system or machine. Its straight linkage to the expansion rack’s A-Bus assurances authentic performance of real-time comparable to that of a PLC industrial standard. This way outstanding foolproof performance, high rates of MTBF and maximum accessibility – plus simple process data integration for utilize by visualization systems and applications of standard Windows.
Keep your choices open with active incorporation
The Slot PLC is a authentic option to the solutions of traditional PLC, mainly for applications with a strong focus on straight machine monitoring and control. The PC incorporation builds it an active part of the automation concept, drastically decreasing space requirements, engineering costs and cabling overheads. And with Mitsubishi you acquire excellent integration process support: additionally to modules of I/O you can use all the particular function modules of the Mitsubishi MELSEC A series, comprise analog I/O, temperature data acquisition, positioning and modules of interface.
The innovative PC-based control of Slot PLC’s conception has a wealth of impressive advantages for the user:
• The PLC integration and system of visualization in a single tool
• Taking away of an whole level of network
• Direct data switch over with applications of Microsoft Office under Windows
• Rates of High MTBF
• Simple incorporation of production data in quality control systems of ISO 9001
Ideal network links over all levels
Slot PLC is well-matched with a large range of network technologies used in systems of automation, including Profibus, TCP/IP Ethernet, CC-Link, MELSECNET10/II, AS Interface, DeviceNet, and I/O Link. The system is also supports MS Office software standard interfaces for simple data sharing with visualization systems and applications of Windows. Plant data and machine– for instance consumption of media or flow data material – can be output for more processing with only minimum overheads of programming.
