Courtesy: Mitsubishi ElectricMitsubishi Electric Automation's MELSEC-L programmable controller series has been expanded to provide more scalable machines and allows users to customize hardware configurations to align with their system requirements.

L Series features include:

  • Addresses the exact program memory requirements of the specific application.
  • Offers the flexibility to expand network architecture. In addition to 10BASE-T and 100BASE-T communication, the L Series Ethernet module also supports MODBUS/TCP through a protocol library.
  • Minimizes space utilization and facilitates troubleshooting and maintenance by combining I/O on digital modules and analog modules.

The L Series integrates advanced sequence, motion, temperature, and vision control into a single package, making the new models ideally suited to applications within the food and beverage, packaging, and life sciences industries, including medical R&D, clinical supply, and commercial manufacturing.

All models within the L Series product line feature single-CPU architecture with built-in Ethernet and mini-USB interfaces, a SD/SDHC memory card slot for program storage and data logging, and 24 I/O for positioning and high-speed counter functions. The high performance L Series controller also includes a CC-Link V2 master/local station for connection to the open field network.
